Abstract

In this paper we study regional dynamics of output in Italy on a sample period spanning from 1970 to 1992 by using a dynamic principal components analysis and a coherence analysis. We find the presence of a basic common economic structure but also the presence of sharp heterogeneity both at low and high frequencies of the growth cycles. Geographical proximity plays a major role in shaping dynamic patterns of regional output in Italy. However, we do not find a clear-cut dualistic divide across Italian regions, particularly at low frequencies.
