In this paper we examine the trends in regional labour pro­ ductivity differentials in Italy over the period 1980-95 using data with a disaggregation in 16 industries. Overall, the results of both ß-convergence e s-convergence tests lead to reject the hypothesis of convergence, with the opposite hypothesis of growing regional dif­ ferentials often appearing compatible with the data. The only par­ tial exceptions are sectors characterized by either high capital en­ dowments (petroleum and coal, chemicals) or peculiar market structure (finance and insurance).
