[Autom. eng. transl.] The economic-financial communication by companies represents one of the most important conditions for the proper functioning of the markets. This function is particularly relevant in contexts, such as the present, in which the information system to which an economic operator can refer is characterized by a plurality of highly articulated and heterogeneous sources. In fact, it is no longer just the company itself that informs about the performance of a company. Rather, a plurality of actors often in conflict of interest intervene at the same time and in a not always coherent way. Moreover, since the beginning of the nineties many regulators and authorities have intervened, in various countries, in order to bring to the center of their reference discipline, on the one hand, the issue of the definition by companies of their own governance structures, on the other the issue of the transparency of these structures and more generally of the performance, financial and otherwise, achieved by companies. The chapter proposes a reflection on how the two elements just mentioned, governance and transparency, have been understood by companies and their stakeholders as essential and for many aspects complementary aspects for the purpose of effective protection of investors and more generally of the functioning of the market.
