Barilla: Branding your cultural identity, the X-Cultural Module
On the 15th of July, as part of this program, Rome Business School students will meet Barilla, an Italian Excellence company that certainly has a lot to teach about branding and Made in Italy. It is enough to think of how they used localization techniques to tailor their claim.
While the slogan “Dove c’è Barilla c’è casa” (Where there is Barilla there is home) was used in Italy for Barilla pasta, very different ones were used in other countries: in the United States of America, Barilla is known as The choice of Italy, while in French a similar one is used, Les pâtes préférées des Italiens (“The Italians’ favorite pasta”). From 2017 to 2021 the slogan Masters of Pasta was used internationally. From April 2021 the slogan used is A Sign of Love, in Italian Un Gesto D’Amore.
