Land Reform in Sicily in the Early Post-War Period
AbstractIn the first post-war period in Europe the governments proceeded to redistributive reforms of the earth, in Italy tried the way of the reclamations through the Opera nazionale combattenti. In this context the Sicily was the main testing ground in order to overlap to latifondistici orderings lacking in investments a modeled system of economic conduction on the tradition of the cooperativismo, plus correspondent to the requirements of a modern capitalist society. The plan of requalification of the territory was set the objective to assault latifondo with a modern legislation on the expropriations and the contracts to improvement. However the sicialian example allows us to shortly conclude that the based project on the diffusion of the management cooperativism and sustained by the public intervention it was shipwrecked because of a local political rank little equipped to receive the challenges of the capitalistic development.
