In 2008, the “Cantine di Marzo” wine farm concluded a long process of proprietary concentration, which led to a drastic reduction in the number of shareholders, concentrating in the hands of the present owners about 86% of the shares. This process of revision of the ownership was considered a priority for the survival of the enterprise, in consideration of the immobility in which the company had fallen as a result of the increase of the shareholders, registered in time as a result of repeated inheritances. From the analysis of this situation two crucial questions emerge: is it possible that the ownership concentration constitutes a useful strategy to revive the action of the governance? If so, what are the reasons that have contributed to the improvement of the complementary action of the management? The experience of the Cantine di Marzo wine farm suggests that the concentration may be a viable strategy of governance, since it enabled, in this case, to achieve a more strategic dynamics and a better operational flexibility. This study, therefore, starting with an analysis of the literature on the effects of the ownership structure about corporate governance of businesses in general and family businesses in particular, analyzes the benefits of ownership concentration. Furthermore, it presents the case study Cantine di Marzo, illustrates the results of the analysis and discusses the scientific and managerial implications.
