Defining the country of origin of a product is becoming obsolete, due to the internationalization of the production process. In this globalized value chain, China has a major role as manufacturer, but it is attempting to incorporate and specialize in new profiting activities. In order to achieve this goal, Chinese companies strive to acquire missing components from foreign countries. In this perspective, Europe and in particular Italy, represents an important target, because it is rich of new technology and know-how. However, after acquiring Italian companies, Chinese investors ship the acquired assets back to the mother land rather than maintain them in Italy. Therefore, Italian firms are transformed into favorable prey to integrate into the investors’ value chain. To improve this situation, Italian companies have to implement their position in the global value chain. Italy should try to build a cooperative relationship with Chinese investors and develop solid cooperation in future production processes.
