"We connect territories to support their economic and social development"

Gonzalo Alcalde - Chairman of A4 Holding

We drive economic, social and cultural development in the north east of Italy.

We design, build and manage infrastructure to improve interpersonal relationships and encourage the sharing of ideas, thereby promoting integrated and sustainable mobility.

An efficient mobility system must coordinate and connect roads and motorways to railways, ports and airports, as well as integrate virtual data highways and fibre-optic networks,  running alongside physical motorways, which represent a powerful driver of mobility and accessibility for goods, people and information.

We use the most advanced technology and solutions to prevent road traffic accidents in order to guarantee safe and intelligent mobility for people and their vehicles, fully respecting the environmental balance and the surrounding landscape.

We make sure that staff development goes hand in hand with constant technical and technological advances, continuously building people’s professional skills and abilities, who are already some of the most well-trained, experienced and committed in the industry.

We are the answer to the need for integrated and sustainable development, which is of fundamental importance for ideas, people and information to be able to travel towards the future.


A4 Holding Group was created to manage one of the most congested motorways in Italy and in Europe.
In 1952, the joint-stock company Autostrada Brescia, Verona, Vicenza, Padova S.p.A. was established in order to connect the east and west of Italy's Po Valley. The aim was to provide continuity for the existing stretches of motorway and boost industrial and economic development in the surrounding areas.

Today, the group's mission is to continue to support local development by improving the road system and by designing, building and managing new infrastructure,while at the same time  developing integrated, innovative and technologically advanced solutions in order to guarantee a high standard of service and safety to travellers.


A4 Holding group is built on people, because it is only with the commitment, passion and experience of everyone that we can really make a difference. Respect for ourselves and for others, ethical conduct and professionalism in internal relations underpin our corporate culture and contribute to creating a sense of belonging.
Our daily activities are focused on the customer, we work to ensure that we're always ready and proactive, offering services, solutions and expertise able to guarantee innovation and excellence, anticipating customers’ needs and wants.

We are known for our honesty, transparency and integrity. We act responsibly, always taking into consideration the social, economic and environmental consequences of our actions.

We’re recognised as being skilled experts in our field because we combine know-how, ability and high-level mobility solutions.

A4 Holding in Italy is an expression of the Abertis Group, an international leader in managing toll roads.

The corporate structure reflects the industrial model with a flexible organization, capable of meeting the market goals for each area of competence.




A4 Holding Group has implemented a governance system and set of rules that allow it to operate in accordance with the core values of sustainability: ethics, transparency, safety, social development, environmental protection, open dialogue with stakeholders, commitment to the local area and local economies.

To consolidate this commitment to transparency, integrity and honesty, we introduced the Whistleblowing Signaling Channel. This secure and bidirectional channel allows anyone with interrelations with Group companies to report, in a confidential manner, any conduct that does not comply with the provisions of the Group Code of Ethics and the Organization, Management and Control Model pursuant to Legislative Decree 231/2001 adopted by each company and by company procedures and regulations in general.

The Code of Ethics identifies the core set of values that underpin corporate culture and translate into the principles and management policies used to implement best practices, guiding our daily conduct in all aspects of the business.

The aim of our Code of Ethics is to guide the Group’s management activities on the basis of ethical values and operating principles, in order to promote clear behavioural guidelines. The purpose of this is to meet the needs of all stakeholders and to consolidate the company’s positive reputation.


Italian Legislative Decree 8 June 2001, no. 231 introduced the liability of collective bodies with or without legal personality, for crimes committed to their advantage or in their interest by persons "functionally" related to the institutions themselves (by way of example, directors, directors, executives and subjects subject to management or supervision of these, such as other employees and some collaborators). The administrative responsibility of the institution can be excluded, if certain conditions are met, if the institution has:

  • Adopted and effectively implemented its own Organization, Management and Control Model;
  • Established its own Supervisory Body, with autonomous powers of initiative and control, with the task of supervising the functioning and compliance and of updating the aforementioned Model.


A4 Holding adopted the organisation, management and control model in accordance with Italian Legislative Decree no. 231/2001, with the aim of creating a structured and methodical system of procedures and preventive control activities in order to prevent the crimes listed by the aforementioned decree. This is achieved by identifying any activities exposed to the risk of crime and subsequently introducing appropriate procedures to regulate them, and appointing their own Supervisory Body.

The Supervisory Body can be reached from the address organismodivigilanza@a4holding.it.

In accordance with Italian Legislative Decree no. 231/2001, the organisation, management and control model has also been adopted by controlled companies of strategic importance.

The A4 Holding Group's Whistleblowing Channels aim to promote compliance with the Group's Code of Ethics, the 231 Models of each Group company and the applicable regulations.  Violations known within the Group's working context can be reported through the digital Whistleblowing platform.

These are safe and bidirectional channels available to anyone who wishes to report violations in good faith. They are not subject to the Whistleblowing Channel, communications or suggestions on services of a commercial nature.

Only members of the Whistleblowing Office have access to the Whistleblowing Channel. The confidentiality of the identity of the Reporter, of the Reported Person, of the persons involved as well as of the object of the report and the relative documentation is protected.

The anonymity of those who wish to send a report in this form is protected, although reports by name guarantee more effective investigations and a suitable dialogue with the Whistleblower.

No retaliation or discrimination, direct or indirect, may arise in the case of a person who has made an alert in good faith.
