Financial Times: Tuscany among most promising investment destinations

Tuscany has been recognized as one of Europe’s most promising regions for investment, ranking fourth in Fdi Intelligence’s “European Cities & Regions of the Future 2024” ranking, commissioned by the Financial Times. This achievement was highlighted during the second edition of the Aftercare Forum in Florence, which highlighted the contribution of the more than 2,800 foreign companies in the region, which employ more than 80,000 people and generate a turnover of 37 billion euros.

Tuscany’s success in attracting investment is attributed to collaboration between public and private entities, promoted by entities such as Invest in Tuscany. The region aims to lead the ecological transition and support business competitiveness. Companies such as Baker Hughes, Dumarey Flowmotion and McPhy are examples of multinationals engaged in sustainability and circular economy projects. Baker Hughes has invested 650 million euros in digital technologies and reducing emissions, while Dumarey Flowmotion develops zero-emission fuels and hydrogen engines, and McPhy is active in clean hydrogen production.

Tuscany aims to make traditional sectors competitive, bring back relocated companies, and invest in workforce retraining and artificial intelligence development. Over the next three years, under the leadership of Governor Eugenio Giani, the region will seek to attract additional international investment in research and development, supporting the growth of centers of excellence, university spin-offs and innovative startups.

The city of Grosseto lies on the Rome-Livorno road axis and is connected to the large urban areas of Siena and Florence via the E78.


With regard to the Rome-Livorno axis (the so-called Tirrenica), the Italian government has announced that in 2025 work will begin on upgrading and securing one of the territory’s main road axes, with plans to upgrade, among other things, the Grosseto south-San Pietro in Palazzi section and the central section from Ansedonia to Grosseto.


As for the Siena-Grosseto link, work is under way to upgrade the E78 to four lanes .

The work specifically concerns a section of about 11.8 kilometers and affects the municipalities of Sovicille, Murlo and Monticiano.


The work, for a total investment of 195 million euros, consists of upgrading the SS223 “di Paganico” to four lanes by building a new carriageway alongside the existing one.


Grosseto also has a civil airport (Grosseto Airport-Seam Spa), which currently serves private flights, with a very strong charter traffic of about 1,500 charter flights a year for business and tourist visits.
