The lack of detailed information on the firms profiting from incentives in Italy makes it very difficult to perform analyses of the characteristics of State aid in this country. To close this gap, this paper exploits a new database, the National State Aid Register, which provides detailed information on incentives falling within the perimeter of State aid in accordance with EU law. Our analysis for the years 2018-19 suggests that industrial policy in Italy is highly fragmented, with fewer resources utilized with respect to the European average. We also show that this aid has been primarily used for SMEs, and to a greater extent (as a ratio of turnover) for those in Southern Italy.
