"En plein miracle économique depuis une trentaine d'années, la Vénétie est devenue pour l'Italie le laboratoire économique et social du capitalisme post-moderne. Le film, comme une étude de cas, analyse la manière dont la famille Carraro a bâti, en trois générations, un groupe industriel international de machines agricoles. Le film est composé d'entretiens avec les différents membres de la famille actifs dans l'entreprise. Un commentaire précise le contexte historique, économique et social. Le film montre, de façon vivante et constamment intéressante, comment, en trois générations, les valeurs ont changé, la réussite individuelle et l'enrichissement personnel se sont substitués aux valeurs collectives, les problèmes de main d'oeuvre ne sont plus les mêmes, les patrons de PME sont contraints d'embaucher de la main d'oeuvre étrangère, les méthodes de gestion du personnel ont changé (on voit un ancien ouvrier qui a créé, avec l'aide de la famille Carraro, sa propre entreprise de sous-traitance). Le film est construit sur l'opposition entre deux frères, ayant chacun repris et fait évoluer différemment deux branches de l'entreprise paternelle, qui incarnent l'un, les valeurs traditionnelles, un paternalisme avec une pensée sociale, l'autre, la "modernité"
