Nature and mission of the Chamber of Commerce of Alessandria
The Chamber of Commerce of Alessandria was founded in 1862, just three months after the coming into force of Law No.680 of 6th July 1862 that set up the Chambers of Commerce and Arts in all the chief towns of province and in some district offices.
Indeed, the Chamber of Commerce, Industry, Craft Trade and Agriculture of Alessandria was founded by Royal Decree no.929 of 16th October 1862 and began to work on January 12th of the following year, on occasion of the first Chamber Board meeting.
The Chambers of Commerce are public institutions, regulated by Law No. 580 of 29th December 1993 (and amendments) with autonomy of statute, organization, administrative regulation and accountability.
Moreover, the Chambers of Commerce are defined as:
- non-territorial local authorities, because the territory only represents the physical limit to their activities;
- representative bodies of general interests in a local area;
