This is a survey compiled by Mediobanca's Research Department in conjunction with the Centro Studi of Unioncamere with the objective of producing a report on medium-sized Italian businesses. The Bocconi University of Milan took part in the early stages of the project from 2000 to 2002 via its CREA "Furio Cicogna" Research Centre, while other Italian universities have also been involved since 2003.
The project comprises a survey of all medium-sized enterprises based in Italy. The annual report contains:
a) a database of financial aggregates compiled from balance-sheet data, broken down by region and sector, and including the main indicators. Data was first collected in 1996;
b) comments on the main balance sheet/P&L trends;
c) additional papers by academics, who are generally economists with particular expertise in a given area;
From 2015 the publication collects in one volume data for Italy, North West, North East, Center NEC, and Center South Islands. Up to 2013 three publications have been issued and collect data over a ten-year time span. The first covered firms in all regions of Italy (1st edn 2003); the second firms specifically in the North West of Italy (1st edn 2003); and the third those in the North East (1st edn 2001). Volumes are also available as from 2003 containing comments by the academics and observations by the entrepreneurs who took part in the presentations.
