Arte dei Mercatanti (1182): The Florentine entrepreneurs who belonged to this ancient corporation imported rough cloth from abroad, refining and finishing it and then selling it. Together they formed powerful trading companies, opening up various branches in many European cities and in North Africa, making huge profits from their trade and becoming known on major European markets.
