This chapter combines information from the four datasets to shed light on the characteristics of Italian managers. It presents evidence on basic demographics, education, and social background and a novel measure of attitudes towards risk. Each section focuses on the differences across different types of ownership structures (e.g., family vs disperse shareholders), and between firms with international exposure vs purely domestic companies.

Keywords: characteristics; demographics; education; background; ownership; firms
