Thursday, November 16,2017 Viscount International S. p. A. was awarded in Rome at Palazzo Cornaro, the prestigious seat of the Council of Ministers where the OPEN INNOVATIVE SME conference was held, conceived and promoted by Bernoni Grant Thornton with the support of authoritative sponsors and sponsors: Ministry of Economic Development, Department for European Policies, National Research Council, Italian University Rectors Conference.


During the numerous speeches, the importance of small and medium-sized Italian Innovative Enterprises (SMEs) in the national economy was underlined. The value of these companies, previously neglected in the past for the benefit of large companies, has finally been recognized also through the law of 24 March 2015 no. 33 "Investment Compact", which aims to strengthen the competitiveness of the national productive fabric and encourage a more widespread diffusion of technological innovations. Among other things, the law also provided for the establishment of a special REGISTER OF SMEs, which currently has 677 members.


Sandro Gozi, Undersecretary to the Presidency of the Council of Ministers with delegation to European Affairs, concluded the speeches, which stressed the commitment of the Executive for Innovation and the Government Plan Industry 4.0.


At the end of the event, the prize-giving ceremony was held, which saw Viscount International S. p. A. as the winner in the SME sector and European and foreign markets.


During the award ceremony, Maurizio Galanti, Marketing Manager of Viscount, declared that the company's history, great passion for its work and significant drive for innovation were the right ingredients to achieve this important award.
