La lezione siciliana di Paolo Sylos Labini, 1958-1960 (Paolo Sylos Labini’s Sicilian Lesson, 1958-1960)


  • Anna Maria Rita La Bruna

    () (Sapienza Università di Roma)


The work analyses Paolo Sylos Labini’s work and thinking during his tenure at the University of Catania between 1958 and 1960. In this period he shared and took part in many initiatives of the social reformer Danilo Dolci. Dolci’s research centre and the laboratory that Sylos Labini created at the Faculty of Economics in the same period established deep links and synergies. 2016 marks the fiftieth anniversary of the publication of “Problemi dell’economia siciliana†edited by Sylos Labini during his stay in Catania. The book enjoyed an extraordinary success and became a milestone of economic research on the Sicilian Region and more in general on the characteristics and potential of socio-economic development of Italy’s Mezzogiorno.
