Abstract

The recent volume Produttività e cambiamento nell’industria italiana (Productivity and Change in Italian Industry) edited by Laura Rondi and Francesco Silva supplies an interesting overview of the structural change in Italian industry in the last decade. The aim of this comment is to survey the papers collected in the book, pointing out the critical problems and possible solutions for Italian manufacturing firms operating in the globalized context. Moreover, as far as the first available data on the effects of crisis allow, the likely impact of crisis on firm strategies to face increasing competitive pressure is also considered.
