Italian Structure

Joint Stock Corporations

Pursuant to the Italian Civil Code, a Joint Stock Corporation (in Italian: “Società per Azioni”) – following the corporate governance traditional system – must have the following organizational structure:

  1. A Board of Directors (in Italian: “Consiglio di Amministrazione”) and a Board of Statutory Auditors (in Italian: “Collegio Sindacale”).

If allowed by the Articles of Association or by the General Meeting, the Board of Directors may delegate some of its powers to one or more Managing Directors (in Italian: “Amministratore Delegato”).

Limited Liability Companies

Pursuant to the Italian Civil Code, a Limited Liability Company (in Italian: “Società a Responsabilità Limitata”) may have one of the following organizational structures:

  1. A Board of Directors (in Italian: “Consiglio di Amministrazione”) and a Board of Statutory Auditors (in Italian: “Collegio Sindacale”).
  2. A Board of Directors only.

In both cases, if allowed by the Articles of Association or by the General Meeting, the Board of Directors may delegate some of its powers to one or more Managing Directors (in Italian: “Amministratore Delegato”).

Please see, respectively, “Board of Directors”, “Board of Statutory Auditors” and “Managing Directors” in the left side menu for a more in-depth description of each structure, including how to change the respective board members.
