The company as an extended family

Most studies on the subject highlight the fact that entrepreneurial families have an extremely complex task: to maintain a delicate balance between the good of the family and the good of the company. This entails a series of consequences of great impact, since the company is never seen as a mere business, but as a company destined to last over time and to be handed down. Solidity takes priority over immediate profit and the pride linked to the name it bears – the so-called eponymy -, together with the prospect of continuity, prevails over the objective of expansion as an end in itself. Therefore, in family businesses the involvement is not only technical-professional, but all-encompassing above all on a human level.
