Verso la fondazione della Scuola Superiore di Commercio
Cronache dalla Gazzetta di Venezia dell’anno 1868
At the end of the Austrian domination, the city of Venice lived in a critical situation characterized by an elevated rate of poverty and a dramatic lack of trades. In the years between 1866 and 1868, aiming to improve the Italian commercial activities and to restore the city to its former glory, a group of venetian delegations supported the establishment of a ‘Scuola superiore di commercio’ in Venice, that was officially founded in 1868. The School was realized in order to become a national and european model of high studies, educating students on the field of economics and commerce and introducing them at the careers as experts, consuls or professors. Through the articles published on the Gazzetta di Venezia in 1868, the essay retraces a complete report of the most important events and negotiations that brought to the opening of the School.
