PORDENONE FURNITURE INDUSTRY HISTORY

 

Industrialisation in the area around Pordenone began in the middle of the nineteenth century with a vital role being played by the availability of hydroelectric power. The abundance of water and differences in altitude on the ground encouraged the development, alongside artificial canals, of factories processing copper, iron, silk and wool as well as flour mills, sawmills and paper mills.

 

There was a radicalisation of industrial relations at the start of the twentieth century resulting in a progressive increase in the level of industrial unrest. The interwar period witnessed industrial economic stagnation in the area around Pordenone as the great depression began to bite and Italy was isolated from the international stage.

 

The turnaround came in the 1950s when some of the more traditional industries began to be overtaken by other sectors which, up to that point, had been made up of little more than artisanal businesses. The takeoff was due in large part to mechanical engineering, paper processing, ceramics, foodstuffs and wood processing.

 

Maniago prospered thanks to the production of knives and the furniture manufacturing sector became increasingly important in Livenza. The foothills of the high mountains continued to host a consolidated mineral extraction sector as well as companies involved with the processing of marble and manufacture of concrete articles.

 

A delegation of the Associazione Industriali di Udine (Udine employers’ association) was set up in 1945 to support the growing industrialisation and development of free enterprise. This became the autonomous Associazione Industriali di Pordenone when Pordenone attained provincial status in February 1968. The founding assembly on 24 January 1969 witnessed the involvement of 204 companies with 18,000 employees. The 1960s saw the birth of many small and medium-sized companies mainly in the metalworking and engineering sectors (from 1961 to 1971 the number of employees increased from 7,371 to 20,955) and in the wood/furniture sector (the number of employees increased from 3,973 to 7,699 in ten years). This economic growth was sustained by increasing demand both in Italy and abroad.

 

In May 1976, just as the inhabitants of Friuli Venezia Giulia began to improve their social and economic circumstances, the area was struck by a massive earthquake. Reconstruction is sudden and exemplary and results in a new renaissance. Despite not being significantly damaged, the province of Pordenone underwent a sustained period of restructuring with the building industry acting as the driving force for the new economic growth.

 

The 1980s saw an economic downturn which affected numerous companies. Yet this difficult period was faced up to and overcome thanks to the attractiveness of the area for investors which the Pordenone economic system was able to showcase.

The province of Pordenone is home to large companies with multinational connections, medium-size companies and small firms. This is the context in which widespread enterprise emerged and which had its origins in the work ethic of the peasant population in Friuli Venezia Giulia.
