In Italy local governments are still a vivid reality, witness of the interaction between the process of globalization and globalization. The contribution that local governments generate to improve the local welfare is inexorably tied to performance levels that involve both governance frameworks as well as managerial choices.

Abstract

In Italy local governments are still a vivid reality, witness of the interaction between the process of globalization and globalization. The contribution that local governments generate to improve the local welfare is inexorably tied to performance levels that involve both governance frameworks as well as managerial choices. These considerations lead to precise control systems to be accomplished both internally – concerning the management of the available resources – and externally through a careful monitoring of investee companies and stakeholders’ needs. Given the heterogeneity of the topic, this work aims to investigate how the performance of local governments can be improved by increasing internal and external control. Such a connection makes it possible to clarify the concatenation between performance and governance structure of the local governments and, ultimately, their governance and local welfare considered as immediate evaluation criterion.
