Abstract

After the Second World War, as the Assemblea Costituente was drafting the new republican Constitution, an intense debate took place among its members as to what model to adopt for the Italian economy. A special Commission, the "Credit Commission", was set up to revise the 1936 banking law, introducing new credit institutions to provide medium-and long-term financing to the industrial sector. Less attention was devoted to the Stock Exchange. Eminent academic, political and institutional representatives sat on the Credit Commission, whose activities included closed-door debates and the hearing of top bank and industrial managers. Based on original sources and on previous research work, the paper discusses the opinions of the Commission key members, opinions which set the stage for the modernisation of Italy’s financial system in the context of European integration.
