Abstract

The first trace of Genoa’s cluster position dates back to the 10th century. The shipbuilding cluster was and still is the major and most significant cluster formation for both economic and business development in Genoa. While keeping this in mind, this case’s key objective is to enhance the exchange of knowledge and experience on the size, specialisation and focus of the maritime sectors within the different cluster organisations. Genoa’s maritime clusters detailed study begins with an in-depth country analysis focused on Italy, followed by the economic performance based on three dominant factors which are resources, micro and macro polices and the national business environment analysis based on four pillars of competitiveness: factors conditions, demand conditions, related and supporting firm industries and firm strategy and rivalry. This case develops an emphasis on the adaptation to globalization, if any. The purpose is to illustrate a range of challenges and issues related to the country and its cluster, all at different stages of socioeconomic development and analysis of positive and negative efforts to upgrade the competitive advantage for a 21st century modern cluster.
