â€śWeâ€™ve spent the past year researching, connecting and working with Italian integrators and installers to grow this community, and weâ€™ve developed a list of companies who are shaping the industry,â€ť says Leonardo Norsa, Executive Director of CEA THM.
The Italian home technology industry has shown very similar signs to the American custom electronics industry, with a number of companies doing work but in need of a unifying force to bring them all together.
