Emilia-Romagna plans production with CyberPlan

The Emilia-Romagna region is famous in Italy for its industrial production. The different provinces are characterized by a heterogeneity of companies that have led to specialization in some sectors and consequently to the development of specific industrial districts.

Within the regional productive fabric, the secondary sector is in fact very developed and diversified according to the various provinces, each characterized by its own peculiarities. These include, for example:

  • Parma is home to numerous food industries, some of which are also of global importance such as Barilla and Parmalat, and the Emilian district of food mechanics;
  • Modena, Reggio Emilia and Bologna where the famous “Land of Motors” is located, an area in which there are famous companies in the mechanical industry, such as: Dallara, De Tomaso Ducati, Ferrari, Italjet, Lamborghini, Moto Morini, Malaguti, Maserati, Pagani Automobili;
  • Ravenna characterised by the presence of companies belonging to the chemical sector;
  • Piacenza with companies operating in the logistics sector;
  • Rimini which sees the presence of industries specialised in woodworking machines.

The region is therefore present in every production sector, from chemical to mechanical and from textiles to electronics, through ceramics, biomedical and publishing to logistics and woodworking machines. The secondary sector of Emilia-Romagna is driven by small and medium-sized enterprises, especially in the pharmaceutical, textile and construction sectors. The metalworking industries are linked to world-renowned brands: Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati and Ducati. The food industry produces famous products such as parmesan cheese and sausages.
