Difesa Servizi s.p.a., an in-house company of the Ministero della Difesa (tr. the Ministry of Defense) deals with the development and economic management of the distinctive elements of the Forze Armate (like denominations, crests, emblems) in order to retrieve from the market additional resources for the balance of the Ministry which will be aimed at different activities. Sales of the “Cioccolato Militare” line will grant financial contributions for the Stabilimento Chimico Farmaceutico Militare of Florence which is committed in the production of “orphan” drugs, medicines on which the private industry has no desire to invest due to lack of profits.
