The model provides for the assignment of a single brand to each specific geographical area, in order to best meet the needs for specialisation of service, while recognising and protecting local characteristics. The resulting organisational structure features an extremely light chain of command, able to promote immediate interaction between the General Management and the area managers ("Banchieri del Territorio").
