English translation:This company/corporation is a State-owned S.p.A. [joint-stock company]
Explanation:
A S.p.A. may be privately owned or state/private or State-owned, known as a State-owned Enterprise (SOE). It may be listed/unlisted. S.p.A. is normally translated as a joint-stock company/corporation. I would leave S.p.A. as the Itaian as you would leave Ltd., A.G., B.V., etc.
