Un esperimento di distrettualizzazione dell’economia civile



In this paper we analyse both positive and negative aspects of an emerging civil economy’s district. We consider the problems that arise in two of the principal “third sector” economic activities (the non-profit enterprise and the co-op) and we highlight both advantages and rationality of a civil economy’s district. Moreover, we present the results of a research conducted at the Polo Lionello Bonfanti. This Italy-based structure which gathers economic activities that follow the “Economy of communion” values and that may represent a civil economy’s district at its embryonic state. In the last part, we stress the threats to a civil economy’s district and suggest some possible solutions.
