Altagamma's most significant contacts include a number of Italian and European institutions that are involved with issues that are of interest to the Foundation.
Altagamma's relations with the institutions are mainly focused on the protection of industrial property (the fight against the counterfeiting of brands and products) and access to the markets (tariff and non-tariff barriers).
The objective of diplomatic activity in this area is the progressive reduction and elimination of duties, taxes of various forms, customs procedures and other protectionist policies that significantly limit the exportation of high-end products to various markets.
The institutions in question include the Prime Minister's Office, all Ministries active in areas of interest to the Altagamma Foundation and its companies, the Institute for Foreign Trade, Parliament and the European Commission.
In Italy, Altagamma also works with non-governmental institutions such as Confindustria, Confcommercio and the Comitato Leonardo.
In 2010, together with Comité Colbert and Walpole, the Altagamma Foundation founded the European Cultural and Creative Industries Alliance (ECCIA) with the aim of promoting the requirements of the high-end industry to the European institutions with a single voice.
