COMITATO LEONARDO – ITALIAN QUALITY COMMITTEE
The Leonardo Committee was established in 1993 on the common initiative of Senator Sergio Pininfarina and Senator Gianni Agnelli, Confindustria, the Italian Trade Agency (ITA) and a group of entrepreneurs, with the aim of promoting and establishing Italian Quality around the world. Not by chance, the name Leonardo refers to the magic alchemy between art, science and technology: three forms of expression of the intellectual capacity that reflects our country’s success at international level.
Today, the Committee brings together 155 well-known figures, including entrepreneurs, artists, scientists and men and women from the world of culture, who wish to share the goal of enhancing Italy and its originality by holding high-profile, cultural and economic events. In carrying out its activities, the Leonardo Committee collaborates with all the institutional bodies that are responsible for promoting Italian companies overseas as well as their internationalisation. These include the top offices of state, such as the Prime Minister, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, the Minister of Economic Development, and the Minister of Cultural Activities and Heritage.
In 2013, the companies associated with the Leonardo Committee have generated total revenues of over €310 billion of which 55 percent derives from overseas sales. This confirms the international vocation of Italian entrepreneurship and the role the Leonardo Committee has played on behalf of Italy’s economic system since 1993.
