The book reconstructs the evolution of finance of local authorities (municipalities) in Italy since the Unit to the seventies. The financial administration has been characterized by the different degree of autonomy from central government. The common feature is an inefficiency in the collection and allocation of resources relative to demand with a loosening of subsidiarity and solidarity between institutions of the areas. These circumstances have determined the weak responsibility of local government about spending levels, the expensive relationship with banks and, finally, the financial difficulties transferred to public and national debt.
