Bringing it all back home. Territorialità, comunità, network: alcune considerazioni di metodo su istituzioni locali e sviluppo
Abstract“Territory” is a fundamental concept in economic history. Assuming that social, political and cultural, institutional, religious and associational processes of a specific «territory» are irrelevant to the nature and direction of economic dynamics is tantamount to saying that the economy is lacking historical dimension, and therefore not real. This paper discusses these issues, focusing on the territorial dimension of economic development. In particular, the concept of “territory” developed by the “Italian School” on industrial districts will be analysed. This analysis will show that the study of relationships and networks, élites and local institutions is relevant to interpreting local development processes in historical terms. Finally, the paper will highlight the necessity of strengthening the methodological approach of “territory”, by adding new research contributions and other robust and original methodological insights.
