Made in ...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I've been wondering, is there a general rule when things are e.g.:  'Made in Italy' , that the factory workers working in the Italian factories all have Italian blood, or by nationality they are Italian?   Eg, if a Mongolian with Italian citizenship or work permit worked at the italian factory that made the clothes, bags, are they still considered Italian made?  

 

Or does it simply mean which country it was made in, not so much the ethnicity of the factory workers/

 

OR

 

When someone says, the Ferrari is Italian made therefore it's pure quality, not like the Japanese stuff, but it so happens that one engineer is Japanese working at Ferrari's Maranello factory, does this mean the comment has less credit to it?

 

Brain twist.

"Made in Italy" means "made in Italy." It says nothing about the blood purity of the workers at the Italian factory, how many generations their families have resided in Italy, or the like. (As something of an aside, I'd find anything else a little disturbing.)

That Ferrari might hire a Japanese engineer would not, I should think, lower Ferrari's perceived level of quality in the mind of any rational individual. (And again, that you would even ask such a question is somewhat troubling to me.)

Okay thanks, and no for the Japanese part, absolutely not against anything Japanese.  It was an example, eg you see it from a lot of forums and videos that some pro american Chevy and mustang drivers are anti Japanese GTR, etc.

It's really just the place where the item was manufactured.

 

You'll be surprised to see that several Made in China items are manufactured by factories who have Japanese supervisors/floor managers. Many of them likewise source their raw materials from France, Italy, Japan or the United States. The machinery used many even come from Germany, Japan or the US.
