In three months in Italy almost 11 thousand artisan companies were lost and without aid they could become 100 thousand at the end of 2020, calculates the Cgia di Mestre, for which this is a negative figure, but in line with what was recorded in the same period of time as previous three years. According to the association representing artisans and small businesses, the worst should come in the coming months, when the negative economic effect of Covid is felt more intensely. In these two and a half months of lockdown, many craftsmen without any income support have been in difficulty – says Paolo Zabeo della Cgia – and there have been few who have speculated to throw in the towel and close definitively. A week after the total reopening, however, the mood changed. There is a desire to fight, to resist, to revive the economic fortunes of one's business. Unfortunately, not everyone will make it through with a loss of at least 100 thousand businesses and 300 thousand jobs at the end of the year.

There is not only the cleaver of the coronavirus, to decimate the artisan companies a crisis that comes from afar. The CGIA notes that in the last 11 years almost 200 thousand artisan companies have been lost in our country. The extent of the contraction now, warns the CGIA, will depend on the support measures that will be introduced by the government in the next 2-3 months. Taking into account that in the last 11 years the stock of artisan enterprises has fallen by almost 200 thousand units, as of March 31, 2020 the artisan companies active in Italy amounted to 1,275,970.

To prevent further deaths from many artisan shops by the end of 2020, Cgia returns to reiterate the need to make important non-repayable contributions to these activities and to eliminate tax revenue for the current year: 'Irpef, Ires and Imu on the sheds. According to the secretary of the CGIA, Renato Mason, the craftsman needs support because the element of social cohesion of our production system. If micro businesses disappear, we risk significantly lowering the quality of our made in Italy.

To focus on the reasons for the closure of the artisan enterprises, the CGIA has produced four simulations made on micro and small craft activities that in April 2020 were forced to close the business by decree: a hairdresser, a carpenter, a construction company and a metalworking company. In detail, a hairdresser with an average annual turnover recorded in 2019 of 70 thousand euros and a loss, from April 2020 to April 2019, of over 5,833 euros, will receive, according to the provisions of the Relaunch decree, 20 percent of this deficit. In practice only € 1,167; a furniture maker carpenter with an annual turnover of 180 thousand euros and a loss in April 2020 on the same month of last year of 15 thousand euros, will receive, with this liability, 3,000 euros, that is 20 percent of the lost revenues. A construction company with a turnover of 450 thousand euros presents a fall in turnover of 37,500 euros. From the provisions of the relaunch decree you will receive 5,625 euros. Amount obtained by applying 15 percent on the loss; a metalworking company with annual revenues of 500 thousand euros and a deficit of 41,667 euros, will collect 6,250 euros from the state, equal to 15 percent of the deficit.
