Two of the World's Oldest Family Businesses are from Italy's Veneto

Of the list of the world's 100 oldest family businesses, Venice's local region is represented by Barovier and Toso glass company from Murano, founded in 1295, and shipbuilders Camuffo from Portogruaro, founded in 1438. As a whole, family businesses from Italy represent 13 out of the 100.

The whole list is an interesting one! The world's oldest family business in the world is a hotel in Japan that was started in 718 A.D.!! The other fascinating observation is that, of all the countries in the world, the U.S. is represented the second most often. Not bad for a country that's been around not even half as long as some of the others!

Germany - 17
United States - 16
France - 11
Japan - 10
Netherlands - 10
Great Britain - 9
Norway - 3
South Africa - 3
