Italian Business Culture

  • Punctuality in the Italian business environment, as a rule, is taken very seriously. Italian business organizations generally have a fixed hierarchical structure, with a clear division between the ranks and little association amongst employees of varying status.

  • You shouldn’t appear impatient in business negotiations with Italians. Italians may see this as a sign of weakness.

  • In the Italian business culture, there is a great respect for authority, power and age. Therefore, the most senior or eldest person present in business and social events should always be given preferential treatment.
