Volume of air freight handled in Italian airports 2010-2018

Export has always represented one of the main sectors of the Italian economy. Food, wine, high precision mechanics and textiles are just some of the goods exported every year from Italy. In 2018, Italian airports handled roughly 1.1 million tons of air freight. The same positive trend can be observed with the number of arriving and departing passengers too.

The Italian quality 

Exported products represent Italy in the world. Consumers worldwide have learned to identify 'made in Italy' as a sign of quality and creativity. Based on recent research, over two thirds of respondents recognized 'Made in Italy' products easily, while 32 percent did not.  

Counterfeiting risk

Because of the fact that products 'made in Italy' are a mark of quality, there is still a risk of counterfeiting and economic damage. According to a survey, 37 percent of the interviewed companies used barcodes as a prevention measure, whereas 17 percent of them implemented authenticity certificates in order to prevent counterfeiting.
