The Luxury Marketing Council of San Francisco presented a spectacular celebration of Made in Italy at the Consulate last week. As the 250 guests enjoyed fine wines by Montresor Vineyards and authentic Italian food by Emporio Rulli, they also enjoyed first-hand exposure to timeless brands crafted by Italy's finest artisans, representing automotive, motorcycles, apparel, cutting edge design furniture, jewelry, Murano glass, Tuscan leather and Florentine paper products. The sum total of these choice offerings was indeed a bella figura.

As Italy's largest extra-EU export market, The United States buys 7% of total Italian exports. Year over year, Italian exports to the United States have been growing strongly, having jumped a full 16.8% in 2012 to reach 26.7 billion euros. Moreover, the United States accounts for 11.1% of total Italian fashion and accessories exports, as well as 9.9% of all food and wine shipped abroad.
