Nella fase in cui vengono definiti i programmi operativi per il nuovo ciclo di programmazione regionale 2021-2027 è utile riflettere sulle lezioni apprese dal ciclo appena concluso al fine di migliorare la programmazione in avvio. Obiettivo del volume è fornire indicazioni, sia concettuali che pratiche, riguardo alle esperienze e alle lezioni, così...

Decentralised government levels are often entrusted with the management of public works and required to ensure well-timed infrastructure delivery to their communities. We investigate whether monitoring the activity of local procuring authorities during the execution phase of the works they manage may expedite the infrastructure delivery process. Fo...

In recent years, Synthetic Control Group (SCG) methods have received great attention from scholars and have been subject to extensions and comparisons with alternative approaches for program evaluation. However, the existing methodological literature mainly relies on the assumption of non-interference. We propose to generalize the SCG method to stu...

This paper revisits results from a field experiment, conducted in Florence, Italy, to study the effects of incentives provided to high school teens to motivate them to visit art museums. In the experiment, different classes of students were randomized to three types of encouragement and were offered a free visit to a main museum in the city. Using...
Article
The economics literature has shown that individual behaviour is not necessarily driven by rational principles but is mainly influenced by emotional and habit-related factors (Hoffman et al. 2017). An opportunity to test individual transport attitudes was offered by a radical change in the mobility pattern induced for a short period by a big event w...
Chapter
How do we measure the borders of urban areas and therefore decide which are the functional units of the territory? Nowadays, we typically do that just looking at census data, while in this work we aim to identify functional areas for mobility in a completely data-driven way. Our solution makes use of human mobility data (vehicle trajectories) and c...

This paper aims to estimate, through the use of a spatial model, the determinants of fiscal policies on property tax adopted by Italian municipalities in 2014, to assess the existence of strategic interactions influencing their revenue decisions and, finally, to investigate the possible sources of such tax mimicking. The analysis evaluates the impa...

This paper reports results from a field experiment conducted to study the effect of incentives offered to high school teens to motivate them to visit art museums. A vast literature exists on the design of incentives to modify the behavior of firms and consumers, but not much is known about incentives offered to adolescents and young adults to affec...

Public works often suffer from long durations and time escalations, which entail the dissatisfaction of collective needs. Using micro-level data on the works recently procured by the municipalities of a large Italian region, we analyse delay incurrence and the subsequent time-to-completion of works. For this purpose, we rely on a split-population d...
Chapter
Dalla difficile congiuntura della finanza pubblica, ai piani di rientro per le gestioni sanitarie, dal riordino delle istituzioni del territorio alla governance del governo locale, quindi le aree interne e gli enti di area vasta, la gestione dei fondi comunitari e le riforme nell'offerta dei servizi pubblici: questi i temi affrontati dal Rapporto 2...

Negli ultimi anni la fiscalità locale è stata oggetto di un susseguirsi di interventi normativi diversi, in un alternarsi di fasi di decentramento e ricentralizzazione, che induce oggi a interrogarsi sulla coerenza generale dell’attuale assetto. A causa delle difficoltà finanziarie nazionali, di fronte alla necessità di conseguire elevati livelli d...
Article
This work has the purpose of inquiring into the presence of an urban hierarchy within second-tier city areas and alternative agglomeration models differing in their self-propelling ability and territorial sustainability. To this aim we confront regional polycentric areas, by going inside the traditional agglomeration and variety economies and the l...
Article
We conduct a laboratory experiment to investigate the factors determining travel mode choice. Two different scenarios are considered. In the first scenario, subjects have to decide whether to commute by car or by metro. Metro costs are fixed, while car costs are uncertain and determined by the joint effect of casual events and traffic congestion. I...
Article
The purpose of the paper is to assess the impact of the Regional Mobility and Logistic Plan (RMLP) of Tuscany on regional growth and spatial disparities between the Tuscan provinces. In order to evaluate its economic impact, we first quantify the impact in terms of changes in travel time and variations in the cost of transportation per unit of deli...
Article
This study applies experimental methods to analyze travel mode choice. Two different scenarios are considered. In the first scenario, subjects have to decide whether to commute by car or by metro. Metro costs are fixed, while car costs are uncertain and determined by the joint effect of casual events and traffic congestion. In the second scenario,...

This study extends previous experimental work on route choice by analyzing the case of travel mode choice. Two different settings are considered. In the first setting, subjects have to decide if com- mute by car or by metro. Metro costs are fixed, while car costs are uncertain and determined by the joint effect of casual events and traffic congesti...

103 Premessa La mobilità rappresenta una componente importante della crescita econo-mica e del benessere individuale. Sono sempre più evidenti, però, le con-seguenze negative 1 del trasporto (in particolare quello su strada) in termi-ni di inquinamento dell'aria e acustico, di congestione e incidentalità. Per affrontare molti di questi temi la visi...

Cities have recently been affected by important changes both as regards their role in general economic growth and their spatial structure. As for the first issue, market globalisation has heightened territorial competition and cities, as places with a concentration of economic activities and workers and potential cradles of innovation, have found a...

SoBigData proposes to create the Social Mining & Big Data Ecosystem: a research infrastructure (RI) providing an integrated ecosystem for ethic-sensitive scientific discoveries and advanced applications of social data mining on the various dimensions of social life, as recorded by “big data”. Building on several established national infrastructures, SoBigData will open up new research avenues in multiple research fields, including mathematics, ICT, and human, social and economic sciences, by enabling easy comparison, re-use and integration of state-of-the-art big social data, methods, and services, into new research.
