The Mediobanca Research Area, Unioncamere and the Guglielmo Tagliacarne Study Center have today published the Report " Leaders of change: Italian medium-sized enterprises in the fifth industrial revolution."

The study examines the history and performance of Italian medium-sized industrial enterprises over the period 1996-2020, highlighting their resilience in different crisis episodes. Preliminary figures for 2021 and expectations for 2022 are also presented. Governance, generational transition, and the dual digital and green transition, as well as the opportunities offered by the PNRR, are also among the topics under analysis. Finally, the survey contains a focus on the Italian agrifood supply chain that is particularly stressed by the current economic situation.
