Italy as an economic area
Italy is located on the Mediterranean Sea in southern Europe and has a population of about 60 million as of 2022. Gross domestic product in 2021 was approximately $2.1 trillion. This makes Italy one of the 10 most economically powerful countries in the world. Italy is characterized by a strong north-south divide. The economic triangle between Milan, Turin and Genoa, also called triangolo industriale, is one of the economically strongest regions in Europe. In addition to manufacturing industrial companies, the service sector is also very well positioned here.
The transport infrastructure in Italy
The road network of Italy has a total length of over 180,000 km, of which almost 7,000 km are freeways. In Italy, these are mostly privately owned and therefore subject to tolls. The largest and busiest highways are the A1, which runs from Milan in the north to Naples in the south, and the A4, which runs from Turin in the west, to Venice in the east. Rail transport in Italy is well developed and inexpensive by European standards. In December 2009, a high-speed rail line with a total length of 1,100 km was completed, crisscrossing the entire country. Thanks to its convenient location, the city of Milan is an important hub for the rail and highway network and, with a total of three airports, is Italy's second largest aviation hub for international traffic.
