Marcello de Cecco's heritage
Marcello De Cecco was a great Italian economist and economic historian (Lanciano 1939 - Rome 2016). His research activities were mainly concerned with the intersection of theory, policy and history of monetary and financial markets, as well as, in more recent times, the analysis of the genesis and functioning of markets.
The Marcello de Cecco Association promotes civil society's passionate attention to the practice of political economy; it values interdisciplinarity and scholarly pluralism, with particular reference to the dialogue of the economic theory of institutions with the history of economic thought and political, economic and social history.
