Il lavoro parte dalla constatazione che l'onere regolamentare sulle banche si e' accresciuto dopo la grande crisi finanziaria a causa di una regolamentazione sempre piu' invasiva e complessa e si propone di analizzare gli effetti di questa "bolla regolamentare" sulle diverse tipologie di banche discutendo il significato e l'effettiva applicazione del principio di proporzionalita' Con l'ausilio di un questionario sottoposto a 39 banche italiane e con l'utilizzo di un dataset sulle sanzioni comminate dall'autorita' di vigilanza nel periodo 1998-2016, si corrobora l'esistenza di economie di scala nel soddisfare i requisiti regolamentari e si sostiene la necessita' di approfondire le conoscenze e le rilevazioni sui costi da regolamentazione per meglio applicare la proporzionalita' in campo bancario e contribuire al mantenimento di un pluralismo bancario utile alla crescita dei diversi territori. The paper starts from the observation that the regulatory burden on banks has increased after the great financial crisis due to more invasive and complex regulation and aims to analyze the effects of this "regulatory bubble" on the different types of banks discussing the meaning and the effective application of the principle of proportionality. With the help of a questionnaire submitted to 39 Italian banks and with the use of a dataset on the sanctions imposed by the supervisory authority in the period 1998- 2016, the existence of economies of scale is corroborated in meeting regulatory requirements. The paper supports the need to deepen the knowledge and surveys on regulatory costs in order to better apply proportionality within the banking sector and to contribute to the maintenance of a banking pluralism, useful for the growth of the various territories.
