Genovesi and Social Economics: 1713-2013

In light of the recent national and international rediscovery of the Italian school of social economics, the Istituto Luigi Sturzo is promoting a series of initiatives dedicated to its main exponent, Antonio Genovesi.

The 300th anniversary of the birth of Antonio Genovesi (1713-1769) in fact inspired the launch of a vast research project that will comprehend and explore the thought of Genovesi who, through his theoretical system, anticipated concepts of political economy that are still debated today.

To do this, the Institute will draw on the scientific support of Italian economists such as Stefano Zamagni, Luigino Bruni and Pier Luigi Porta, who for some time have been working on rediscovering and valuing the tradition of theoretical economics in Naples.
