"Our Company actually fills up two fundamental gaps in the Italian market", said Anna d'Alessandro, owner of Aldebaran Distribution. "First of all, it's the first Italian Distribution Company born 'pure', that means with no involvements whatsoever with the production aspects. Therefore it's able to communicate with all Italian Producer at the same level and represent all the Italian Products with the same expertise. Moreover, its mission is to become the connection, the meeting point among the best Italian Independent Producers and International Broadcasters. In Italy, in fact, there are several excellent Producers, that create beautiful products that have nothing to envy to the International products. But these Producers rarely manage to cross our borders and reach the foreign market, but from now on they will be able to count on a real international sales force. "
