  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: North-South Dualism; Historical Analysis of Dualism.

In this paper the latest quantitative research on the economic history of postunification Italy are discussed. On the basis of this research, some recent contributions to the literature on the dualism between North and South of Italy are evaluated. Finally, two theoretical models, based on neo-institutionalism categories, are proposed, which help to explain the origin and evolution of dualism.
