[Autom. eng. transl.] In recent decades the notion and effects of social capital have been the subject of extensive theoretical discussions and empirical checks. The concept qualifies for the characteristic of multidimensionality, which does not allow a precise definition. The objective of this study is to identify, after a review of the literature and the main research guidelines, the presence and intensity of social capital in European countries and regions, starting from a questionnaire administered to a significant sample of European citizens, on the value and intangible aspects of economic and social life (European Value Survey). Thanks to the Analysis of the Main Components, it is possible to observe the presence of distinct dimensions of share capital, defining their positioning in the various European countries and regions. In an attempt to operationalize the concept, a relatively innovative taxonomy has emerged compared to existing literature.
