Description
Summary:The paper discusses the rural economic factors of the regional differences and their fading that started roughly with the second agricultural revolution and got an impetus with collectivization and - after re-privatization -with the decline of agrarian activities and arising of new forms of consumption. Thus the paper analyzes on one hand the process of uniformization accompanied by the spreading of globalized - or at least nationalized - patterns of lifestyles that are no longer connected to the local resources: for example the technologies allow the production of new plants, and the trade allows new ways of consumption. On the other hand deals with the new forms of regionalism that affected the economic life of different communities which aimed at renewing their relations to local resources both internally and externally by selling the elements of their surroundings and way of life: the ecological and regional reforms emerged in last years had in their focus the use of local resources, the preservation of local types of production, the awareness of local values and cultures, consequently the regional groups started to reformulate again their differences. My aim is to find and to analyze the main aspects of these processes.
