The Autonomous Province of Trento can claim a truly unique historic and cultural identity, codified in the form of a special institutional autonomy granted after the Second World War (1946) in a specific agreement signed by Italy and Austria. In Trentino all the most important political decisions are taken locally, rather being referred to central Government; hence economic decisions are made rapidly, on the basis of the specific characteristics of the area and with the objective of promoting excellence. The financial resources and wealth produced remain within Trentino and are managed by the provincial government.

Bureaucratic procedures in Trentino, streamlined and effective, also benefit from Provincial autonomy and are inspired more by the bureaucratic system in the Anglo-Saxon world than by the Mediterranean model, guaranteeing rapid and effective responses according to a clearly defined timescale.
