cover Toscana economiaThis volume traces the economic history of Tuscany between the 19th and the 20th century, presenting itself as an useful guide to explain the model of development followed by entrepreneurs and local authorities all through the industrialization period, and the way it changed the conformation of territory and society. The authors – professors in economics, economic history or history of economic thought – have succeeded in illustrating the expansion of both large and small industries, the specialization of crops, the rationalization of good’s and people’s flows, and so in drawing up a comprehensive picture of the disruptive, innovative force of Tuscan entrepreneurship, and of the way it has shaped urban and agricultural landscapes over the centuries.
