Lesson timetable

Learning outcomes

Our aim is to help students realize that the changes occurred in contemporary society have very distant origins.
In socio-economic Italian history the birth of industrial districts represents an interesting typology of social and economic mobility, the result of a centuries-old urban tradition.
The course will focus on the exploration of the ways in which the “different” Italies gradually organised into a structured district system based on social and productive co-operation supported by a widespread disposition to social mobility. With regard to the Italian postwar economic development, great attention will be given to the forms of intergenerational mobility linked with the spread of industrial districts.

Programme
In socio-economic Italian history the birth of industrial districts represents an interesting typology of social and economic mobility, the result of a centuries-old urban tradition.
The course will focus on the exploration of the ways in which the “different” Italies gradually organised into a structured district system based on social and productive co-operation supported by a widespread disposition to social mobility. With regard to the Italian postwar economic development, great attention will be given to the forms of intergenerational mobility linked with the spread of industrial districts.
The course will cover the following topics:
1. Urban traditions, co-operation and solidarity in modern and contemporary Italy;
2. Modernization and social mobility;
3. Postwar Italian economy: intergenerational mobility;
4. Social capital, co-operation and reliability;
5. Industrial districts: history teaches a lesson.
