It denotes an area of higher population density lying between Valencia in the west and Genoa in the east along the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, defined by the "Europe 2000" report from the European Commission in 1995 to be analogous to the so-called Blue Banana. The region is a centre for information technology and manufacturing.
