Abstract: The paper investigates the spatial distribution of cultural and creative industries (CCIs) with the main focus on the inner peripheries of the Italian regions, as defined by the Italian National Strategy of Inner Areas (SNAI). The objective of the paper is to analyse the role of culture in fostering the development of peripheral areas in order to discuss the correspondence between the presence of CCIs evaluated in terms of establishments and employees, and the policies applied by the National Strategy. The analysis includes quantitative (specialization indexes) and cartographic methods (maps) at the national, regional, and local levels that provide a clear insight into the CCIs endowments. The results of the analysis suggest that CCIs distribute in Italian Inner peripheries in a similar way than in the whole country. The results also confirm the historically rooted difference between the northern and southern parts of Italy. The paper opens to further research concerning the adherence of the SNAI (and the actions planned at the different scales) to the actual characteristics of the economic tissue and the possible role of culture in bridging the gap between the areas, contributing to the success of the overall National Strategy.
