In recent years, in Italy, the analysis of economic disparities at a regional level received much attention. In spite of this, improvements in quantitative analyses have not been adequately supported by new data releases. Adopting a procedure firstly developed by Di Fonzo [21], Italian main macroeconomic variables have been interpolated to produce quarterly regional time series comparable with the national ones. Some innovations in the basic model made this procedure appropriate for fitting non-stationary time series. Reconstructed variables allow to analyse “stylised facts” of business cycles in each territorial area, providing additional information in evaluating short-term regional dynamics.
