Explanation: "La definizione civilistica della ditta individuale la identifica come il "nome commerciale" sotto il quale l’imprenditore esercita la sua attività, cioè il mezzo attraverso il quale l’attività economica è identificabile; il corrispondente per le società di persone è la ragione sociale, mentre per le società di capitali è la denominazione sociale."

Explanation: I think both Massimo and Barbara have the right idea. But even if it were a larger company (and "ragione sociale" or "denominazione sociale" were applicable") in English we would not "define" what they are by their name and simply refer to them by the name they trade under.
