An initiative to express the thanks of the Lombardy Region to those, like us, who contribute to making Lombardy great. These businesses have been described as the beating heart of the Lombard economic fabric. Throughout all these years, despite the difficulties, all of us have been able to resist and innovate. Merchants, restaurateurs, and artisans also represent a social presence within the communities. For this reason, we have been defined as a source of pride for all of Lombardy.

The Criteria

To be considered eligible as a historical enterprise, the business must have operated without interruption for a period of no less than 40 years. As the regional councillor for Economic Development, Guido Guidesi, emphasizes, "Often, these are family-run businesses: stories of people who, generation after generation, meet the daily challenge of work and know how to remain competitive."
