The success of Termini was clear for all those coming to Rome and the then Minister of the Economy, Giulio Tremonti, who was willing to re-launch the National Agency for the Attraction of Investments, known as Sviluppo Italia (nowadays Invitalia), choose Mr Caputi to be in charge of the Agency, appointing him, in early 2002, CEO of the holding company. In three years, under Caputi’s management, investments grew to exceed one billion Euros and jobs created reached tens of thousands per year. Management efficiency was measured also by the profits which exceeded 10 million Euros, such that the then Deputy Minister of the Economy declared to the press agency ANSA "…the company is finally becoming the Development Agency that it should have been from its very creation and which, instead, unfortunately, has been used in the past only for patronage purposes".
