Abstract

This work does a short inquiry into the past experience of the Italian banking law and the ownership structure of the Italian credit industry. The inquiry is especially focused on the role played by culture and other historical events (e.g. political ones) in shaping the Italian economic framework. In other words, this paper wants to trace a short and descriptive outline of the evolution of the Italian banks' ownership structure in order to show how political and social factors counted in determining the present features of the system.

Keywords: corporate governance, ownership and control, banking law, banks, evolution, Italy
