Founded in 2019 from the merger between AssoCom (Associazione aziende di comunicazione) and Unicom (Unione Nazionale Imprese di Comunicazione) today UNA is the most relevant association in the Italian communication’s industry, counting with 180 companies members covering different areas: advertising, digital, PR, media, events and retail agencies.
The birth of UNA, a unique association representing the entire industry of communication, marks an a historic step that we have been waiting for in Italy for many years (…) First of all, I want to thank Alessandro Ubertis – past president of UNICOM -, that the Council has decided to appoint as Chairman Emeritus for the essential contribution he gave to the whole project. It’s time for a new era in the associative world. Responsibility, growth and participation will be our guiding principles
