Associazione per la Storia Economica (ASE) and Fondazione Luigi Einaudi, two institutions that took great advantage from Stefano Fenoaltea’s (1943-2020) scientific engagement over the last years of activity, are organizing a joint workshop to reassess Fenoaltea’s legacy, not least to promote it among younger scholars, whom will be provided special attention in the selection process.
Guest Editors: Michele Postigliola, Mauro Rota, Donatella Strangio, and Jacob Weisdorf (Sapienza University of Rome), and Anna Missiaia (Gothenburg University).
The regional divide between the north and the south of Italy is the largest within Europe. Its historical roots have received considerable attention from economic historians. This is captured by a wave of recent quantitative studies attempting to track regional differences back to the country’s political unification, in 1861.
