Persistenze e cambiamenti nell’industria italiana durante gli anni del "declino": un’analisi territoriale


  • Stefano Prezioso
  • Stefano Rosignoli


Radical changes in economic geography driven by "global" trends led entrepreneurs to greatly vary the business choices made in the 2000-2006 period. The purpose of this study is to analyse the "micro" factors that have had a more profound impact on entrepreneurial behaviour and the different impacts they have had on a regional scale. Based on an econometric exercise, the study aims to identify: i) the competitive advantages associated with the relatively more successful cases of firm growth; ii) whether these cases are characterized by elements of continuity/discontinuity with respect to the traditional aspects of the model of Italian industrial specialization; and iii) how these behaviours have been distributed across the territorial segments of the country. The paper then observes and comments on the inhomogeneous distribution of the shifts in the use of factors capable of spurring higher growth performances in different territorial contexts.
