Emanuele Felice es profesor visitante de Historia Económica de la Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Sus principales intereses de investigación son la desigualdad regional y el crecimiento económico italiano en el largo plazo. Ha publicado varios artículos en revistas italianas e internacionales (Cliometrica, Economic History Review, Enterprise & Society, Explorations in Economic History, Intelligence, Journal of Modern Italian Studies, Rivista di Politica Economica, Rivista di Storia Economica) y cinco libros italianos, entre ellos Divari regionali e intervento pubblico (Il Mulino, 2007).

“Regional convergence in Italy, 1891–2001: testing human and social capital”,  Cliometrica (2012), 6, pp. 267-306.

Abstract:
The article aims to present and discuss estimates of levels of human and social capital in Italy’s regions over the long term, i.e., roughly from the second half of the nineteenth century up to the present day. The results are linked to newly available evidence for regional value added in order to begin to form an explanatory hypothesis of long-term regional inequality in Italy: convergence in value added per capita is tested in light of the neoclassical exogenous growth approach, which incorporates human capital and social capital as conditioning variables into a long-term production function. In contrast with conventional wisdom (e.g. Putnam 1993), I find that social capital was not a significant predictor of economic growth in post-Unification Italy: it grew in importance only in the last decades. Conversely, human capital was more important in the first half of the twentieth century. Results suggest that there was not one single conditioning variable over the long run, thus supporting the view that, in different periods, conditioning variables can be determined by technological regimes.
