PIEMONTE, EUROPEAN AND GLOBAL GATEAWAY

Italy is Europe’s 2nd largest manufacturer and in the last 30 years has always been ranked as one of the World’s Top 10 Manufacturers. Piemonte has strongly contributed to this success, demonstrating to be one of the manufacturing engines of Europe. It produces about 8% of Italy's national wealth, and its production system has reached high levels of excellence and tertiary sector expansion.

Piemonte is a promising and competitive business area. The region is as dynamic in industry as in services, with a skilled, flexible and versatile workforce.

A WORLDWIDE LEADING INTEGRATED CLUSTER FOR MOBILITY

Italy is the fourth largest European automotive market after Germany, the UK and France.

The Italian automotive industry is primarily concentrated in Torino and in Piemonte: around 35% of the 2,467 companies (with 160,000 employees) active in Italy are in fact established here (Source: Automotive Industry 2020 by ITA - Italian Trade Agency).

Piemonte and its capital Torino, birthplace of Fiat, then Stellantis, are not only the core of the national automotive industry, but of European car and mobility technology. Piemonte is the forerunner in Italy in terms of automotive and transportation components companies: 

  • 33.5% OF THE ITALIAN AUTOMOTIVE AND TRANSPORTATION COMPONENTS INDUSTRY IS IN PIEMONTE
  • 737 AUTOMOTIVE AND TRANSPORTATION COMPONENTS COMPANIES
  • 35,8% OF THE ITALIAN AUTOMOTIVE AND TRANSPORTATION COMPONENTS TURNOVER IS IN PIEMONTE
  • Over 56,600 EMPLOYEES

COMPREHENSIVE KNOW-HOW AND A COMPLETE SUPPLY CHAIN DEVOTED TO THE FUTURE

Piemonte’s automotive & transportation production encompasses the entire supply chain from the upstream phases to the final products, offering business and know-how from the concept of the vehicle till its delivery: project planning, prototyping, styling, robotics and automation, components and mass production, industrialisation of the product and driving test.


The tradition of “knowing how to make cars” has always been preserved while being reinterpreted to match changing market request and available technologies. Moreover, the role of machinery industry, R&D and design is strategic at every level. The strong leadership of Piemonte in robotics and mechatronics has fostered innovation, automation and cost-efficiency throughout the entire supply chain also by the widespread adoption of casting processes for lightweight material and new manufacturing technologies such as additive manufacturing (3D printing) technologies.


Furthermore, through the link with leading systems and technology providers (often located in the area), the supply chain is able to offer high qualified capabilities and competences on electrical and electronic architecture, including power conversion systems, safe and secure real-time communication systems, advanced human-machine interfaces and remote monitoring systems.

READY TO FACE THE NEW CHALLENGES OF THE SECTOR

The evolution of the mobility sector is aimed at developing new solutions for passengers and freights that can be resource-efficient, climate-and-environmentally-friendly, safe and seamless.


It is possible to find in Piemonte the necessary know-how for electric vehicle development, integration, production and all the solutions and services needed for full electrical mobility, including energy storage and distribution.

In addition our local companies are working on innovative smart mobility concepts integrating vehicles and infrastructure through the application of advanced digital technology.

Companies are indeed developing more and more distinctive technologies and solutions in the fields of ELECTRIFICATION, CONNECTIVITY, AUTONOMOUS DRIVING, SUSTAINABLE AND SHARING MOBILITY, BIG DATA AND SOFTWARE-DESIGNED VEHICLES, projecting the whole territory towards new challenges and new consumer markets.

AUTONOMOUS AND CONNECTED DRIVING AND NEW FORMS OF MOBILITY

When dealing with mobility experimentation, Torino offers exceptional possibilities.


The Torino City Lab (TLC) is a platform that involves a local partnership of public and private actors to support the growth of autonomous mobility services (autonomous vehicles and drones for the transport of people and things) and innovative urban services enabled by 5G technologies including urban applications of Artificial Intelligence and collaborative robotics, IoT, augmented and virtual reality. Thanks to TCL,it is possible to access simplified conditions to conduct the testing activities of innovative solutions for urban living in real contexts.


Torino is in fact one of the first cities in Italy allowing the testing of connected and autonomous vehicles on its public roads and not only in areas closed to traffic.


The City of Torino provides companies, public institutions and universities signing the 2018 memorandum - Stellantis, GM Global Propulsion Systems/Punch Torino, 5T, ANFIA, Politecnico di Torino, University of Torino, Telecom Italia, Torino Wireless Foundation, Open Fiber, Employers’ Association of Torino, Italdesign Giugiaro, FEV and Unipol - access to 35 kms of dedicated roads and telematics infrastructures.


Urban air mobility is another frontier of transportation of people and goods being developed in Piemonte.


Torino is increasingly confirming itself as a pole of development and implementation of the new autonomous air mobility experimentation in Italy and is intensely engaged in the testing of autonomous and advanced air mobility.


To encourage the development of new forms of mobility, the newborn Casa delle Tecnologie Emergenti - CTE (i.e. House of Emerging Technologies), will gradually be incorporated into TCL. Established in March 2021, CTE is an urban lab involving startups, companies and institutions altogether engaged in technology transfer, business development and urban innovation on emerging technologies, focusing on smart mobility, Industry 4.0 and innovative urban services and the 5G connectivity implementations such as IoT, Big Data, Artificial Intelligence and Blockchain to contribute to the future smart transportation and the citizens’ quality of life.
