What is a patent?

A patent is an exclusive right over an industrial application that is the result of ingenuity, research and inventiveness; or, in the words of the Patent Office, "an invention is a new and innovative solution in response to a technical problem": the creation of a completely new device, product or method, or the improvement of an existing product or process. It is the result of considerable efforts and long-term investments in research and development.

In Italy, the first patent dates back to 1421.

It was issued to the Florentine architect Filippo Brunelleschi for the invention of a barge intended for the transport of marble for the construction of the Florence Cathedral.
