Criticalities in the Funding, Planning and Selection of Infrastructure Projects in Italy

Piero Casadio () and Marco Paccagnella

QA - Rivista dell'Associazione Rossi-Doria, 2012, issue 1

Abstract: This paper highlights some drawbacks in the planning of infrastructures and public works in Italy. The major flaws lie in the overlapping of competences and failure to implement effective coordination mechanisms among the different levels of government, together with the lack of a clear financial framework and funding mechanisms that lead to a number of works in excess of the available funds. These problems are aggravated by deficient monitoring and evaluation of interventions, whether in progress or ex post.
