Keywords: Italian and European migration European economic migration Italy's economic development Business history Use of remittances

In general, my research extends to Italian and European economic history issues, with particular attention to the evolution of European economic integration. Business and local history research themes also interest me, even though I have recently devoted most of my attention to trace the economic history of  Italian and European migration. My present research interests are devoted to a EU financed project on the economic history of migration - a Jean Monnet Chair which I won in August 2016. I'm thus currently working on the history of Chinese immigrant entrepreneurs, on the effects of decolonization on Italian residents in Tunisia and on the use of remittances to help local economic growth.

In the past, other research themes have included: the development of industry in Forlì, the history of  the FIM, the  role of the OEEC in fostering the Italian economic miracle, big business and Italian industrial policies after World War II and the history of Fiat-Chrysler special relationship.
