Il "modello Emilia": disintegrazione produttiva e integrazione sociale


Author Info

  • Sebastiano Brusco - commentato da Margherita Russo


This paper comments the Sebastiano Brusco's well known essay on the "Emilian model" here reissued. Brusco's essay presents a dynamic analysis of the interaction between the productive structure, the labour market, and the main political institutions in Emilia-Romagna. Focused on localized processes of productive disintegration counterbalanced by social integration, the "Emilian model" - codified at the beginning of the 1980s - has experienced meaningful changes over time. These changes concern: a) networks of relationships between interconnected businesses, which have experienced a relative disruption of their internal information flows, b) technical and vocational education, which has encountered increasing difficulties in the linking between schools and firms with a negative impact on the re-generation of professional skills, c) innovation policies, which led to a decrease in the role of local and intermediate institutions.
