Join Angela Cacciarru, Ph.D. and learn how the modern history of Italy, and the current history of Italian and American economic development are interrelated with the history of one prominent family: the Agnelli. You will learn how they became associated with the production of FIAT cars and the city of Turin, the iconic, elegant former Italian capital where FIAT production started.
 
You will also learn about the intertwined histories of both the Italian and American automotive industries.
We will look at how the Agnelli family was, once more, at the center of important entrepreneurial decisions that culminated in the merging of FIAT and Chrysler, and the creation of the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N.V., which is the world’s eighth largest auto maker.
 
More recently, FIAT, Chrysler and Peugeot have struck a binding deal to create the world’s fourth-biggest car-maker.
 
If you would like to understand how the journey of this unstoppable European family is maybe just the mirror of the state of the art of our current economy, you will gain insight in this exciting presentation!
