L’impatto economico dei mega eventi in Italia: da Torino 2006 a Milano 2015
Mega events are often perceived as an opportunity to foster economic development and are thus regularly present on the policy agenda in Italy as in other countries. However, no convincing analysis has yet been written, at least in Italy, about the real impact of mega events. This book partially fills in this gap. It achieves a critic of existing studies on the mega events in Italy, specifically focusing on Turin 2006 and Milan 2015. This research analyses the methodological issues that hinder the validity of these assessments and generate inflated estimated impacts. This book has been written for experts, researchers, students and more generally whoever is interested in evaluating the impact of projects capable of shifting billions of euro of public expenditures.
