|Industrial clusters in Treviso and Belluno province
|An industrial cluster is a socio-economic entity which consists of a group of industries situated in a circumscribed area. Within any specific cluster, each company is specialized in a singular stage of the production process of the product involved. This mechanism evidently creates industrial chains in which the stages of production of a singular product are subdivided among different industries and not within a single one.
The industrial chains do then assure high flexibility and pliability to different requirements and market situations. The first studies on this issue date from A. Marshall; important contributions to the Italian reality have been granted by Becattini.
From the legal point of view, a definition for the Italian clusters was given by the Act n. 317 of October 5 1991 (Official Gazette of the Republic of Italy of October 9 1991, n. 237), pursuant to the Veneto Regional Council’s resolution n.79 of November 22 1999 (which determined Veneto clusters, including those of Treviso province which are described within this portal).
