Abstract

In the last thirty years economic history studies have revised their position on the transition from ancien régime to modern era, challenging the idea that the hiatus of the industrial revolution was a short phase of ‘take-off’. That turning-point is now seen as the result of a long period of global transformation dating from the 16th and 17th centuries. Taking its cue from this debate, the essay goes on to examine a specific case - the Trentino-Tyrol economic region - analyzing how this integrated with the Italian plain and the European economic area, and highlighting points of overlapping continuity and hiatus in the leading sectors of the economy.
