The data has been obtained in two European Regions: Friuli-Venezia-Giulia in Italy and Navarra in Spain, differentiated in commercial aspects related fundamentally with the product differentiation. The principal information is based on a home consumer survey designed ad hoc. The structural equation model to multi-group analysis has been the main methodology selected to explain the data. The results showed similarities in different aspects on consumer behaviour independently of the market distance, and the influence of the commercial aspects in the valuations and consumer decisions. So that, the market differentiated (Spain-region) is best protected to the alternative type of scares.
