    It's good to have all these services available in Italy. A virtual office gives a sense of security while away doing business in other countries.

    I believe this type of business is more suitable for young persons, accustomed with the modern communication means, familiarized with the internet and who are very dynamic. Of course, all types of investors can establish a virtual office, because it provides a set of advantages which the classical type of comapny can't offer.
