Questo articolo presenta le principali teorie esplicative della bassa fecondita' nei Paesi a sviluppo avanzato. Poste in un quadro speculativo piu' ampio, sono trattate sia teorie economiche che spiegazioni sociologiche ed istituzionali; la rassegna Š inoltre arricchita da due esempi di integrazione di teorie note e qui presentate. Alcune riflessioni sulle differenti implicazioni di politica pubblica a favore della natalita' concludono il lavoro. --- This article is an orderly presentation of the main theories explaining the determinants of low fertility in developed countries. It ranges from economic approaches to sociological and institutional explanations and concluding in a presentation of two theory integration cases. Moreover, it sets the topic in a broader speculative framework and ends by remarking on the different policy implications of the theories discussed within.
