Abstract

Co-operative banks are an important reality of the credit system and they are spread in Italy and in Europe. These banks are a category different from other banks, as are characterized by a legal form which has some very specific characteristics. These banks may contribute to the development of human capital and the strengthening of social capital, but also to the development of the knowledge economy that thrives on knowledge and tacit knowledge passed down through the local culture. This essay is inspired by a recent stimulating book on the role of banking institutions edited by Alberto Quadrio Curzio entitled “The Cooperative Credit Societies. Italian and European profiles” and it constitutes a reasoned analysis of it.
