Il settore degli apparecchi domestici e professionali: tra glorie passate e sfide future

Francesca Giuseppina Maria Sica ()

Rivista di Politica Economica, 2014, issue 1, 35-94

Abstract: The history of the sector of home and professional appliances is one of the most emblematic expressions of the success reached by the Italian creative entrepreneurial spirit. For this reason, the paper reconstructs the sector evolution considering all its phases. In the 1950s, on the basis of a semi-handcrafted production, an industrial sector takes shape, then becoming the “factory of Europe”. As much as at the beginning it was the Schumpeterian “innovation entrepreneurs” to give birth and then successfully develop a sector, strategic partnership innovation is now the key factor in order to overcome this negative phase.
