Abstract

The acclimatization process of Keynesian thought in Italy was long and complex. Several Genoese economists participated in it. In this work, taking as a reference two professors from the University of Genoa, Vittorio Sirotti and Luciano Stella, it is shown how this participation was divided into two phases. In a first phase, exemplified by the studies of Vittorio Sirotti, the attempt to reconcile the Keynesian theory with that of the Lausanne school was prevalent. In a second phase, when the acceptance of Keynesian theory in Italy was by now consolidated, the concern prevailed, evident in the studies of Luciano Stella, to extend this theory from a closed economy to an open economy
