Financial Markets can be modeled as complex systems. The Hugh quantity and different information affecting these markets is a remarked characteristic. However some of this information can be recover by constructing a topology of the market. We develop a symbolic method in order to study relationships in the financial markets by constructing Minimal Spanning Tree (MST) and Hierarchical Tree (HT). Method is successfully applied to the Italian Financial market detecting clusters with economic sense. This classification is helpful in portfolio construction and studying industrial networks.
