In this article, we study the pattern of growth in one of the Italian best performing regions â€“ the Veneto region â€“ focusing on the role played by human capital and technology. Our aim is to verify the growth effect of human capital and technological intensity. The period considered is the pre-crisis period between 2001 and 2005. The results of the regressions clearly show how in the Veneto region the productive â€œspecializationâ€ , which has the greatest impact on growth, is the one in high-technology. However, human capital employed in high-technology intensive sectors does not explain growth significantly. This suggests an under-employment of human capital in the sectors at the frontier and the need to intervene with policies that develop high-technology industries.
