Abstract

This essay deals with the production and dissemination of financial information involving three main protagonists: i) the company, as a "source" of information, governed by codified rules and by uses that decide what should be made public and how; ii) the "transmission channels", ie the ways in which the information produced by the source is treated in order to satisfy the requirements of the various stakeholders; iii) the "interpreters", who use the integrated information for purposes of economic policy, social analysis or simply to inform the general public (economists, politicians, publicists). The three views are developed keeping a common thread that takes its cue from rules established by national laws and EU directives. The five chapters present a reconstruction,of the events and characters information. From the first "light" lit in 1908 yearbook published by Credito Italiano, taken in 1928 by Assonime, to the degeneration of Enron, Parmalat and American analysts in the 2000s, passing through the bank takeovers in the 1920s and the Italian cult books
