Even if theItaly is now really ‘racing’ in Europe in terms of economic growth, with a 2021 that will close with + 6.3% in terms of GDP, we cannot yet speak of a long-term boom. Or at least, it’s not the same as the country’s enormous leap forward in the late 1950s and 1960s, when the automobile also played its part with increasingly popular models capable of moving the masses. from one point to another of the boot.
Today Fiat Panda and Fiat 500, respectively with light and electric hybrid, are trying to give a little technology to the Italian market, but there is no comparison with sixty years ago. Pippo Baudo recalled this, historical TV presenter and star of the Sanremo Festival, in an interview published by Resto del Carlino. “I arrived in Rome in ’59. That was an Italy in celebration, you could breathe happiness and the will to live. Years too good to be true. The Italians were happy, every initiative was successful. Those years will never come back. The Fiat 600 was the dream of the Italians, in fact it was the consolation prize to ‘Leave or double?’. I owned a 500, bought with 36 installments. I had just arrived in Rome but I had to give myself an attitude. I still don’t know how I got into it: to do it, I had to open the roof every time»Said the great 85-year-old showman.
Other times, good times. Now the same momentum (also cultural) would be needed to be able to continue surfing on the crest of the current growth wave. OECD analysts have certified this European record for 2021, and it seems that it is the small and medium-sized manufacturing company that makes the difference. Perhaps it will be from this type of activity, with connection to industry 4.0, that the best ideas will be born to better integrate renewable energy, the world of transport and the circular economy. Elements that mixed together could collect two objectives: that of more work (less unemployment) and that of the fight against climate change (less pollution).
