Historical background

Italy became a nation-state in 1861 when the regional states of the peninsula, along with Sardinia and Sicily, were united under King Victor EMMANUEL II.

An era of parliamentary government came to a close in the early 1920s when Benito MUSSOLINI established a Fascist dictatorship.

His alliance with Nazi Germany led to Italy's defeat in World War II.

Economic overview

Italy has a diversified industrial economy, which is divided into a developed industrial north, dominated by private companies, and a less-developed, welfare-dependent, agricultural south, with high unemployment.

Italy also has a sizable underground economy, which by some estimates accounts for as much as 15% of GDP.
