With Elisa Giuliani, I have published a  CERTeT WP on Italian industrial districts (IDs). In this paper we use the available empirical evidence on these recent transformations, and elaborate a novel typology of Italian ID organizational models (i.e. lowroad IDs, locally rooted GVC-led IDs, and outward oriented GVC-led IDs).

My book about the changing geography of wine production

My book about the changing geography of wine production

«This book overturns the old paradigm ideas about natural-resource-based activities.
It sheds light on the new opportunities for technological dynamism and catching-up by using science to open novel directions in traditional sectors. It should become a classic in what I expect will be a very important academic debate
and a new trend in
development policy

«This excellent book demonstrates better than any other I know the strengths and limits of the concept of a national system of innovation for understanding economic development today.
Any careful student of innovation or development will want to read it.
