The book offers a theoretical and empirical investigation of the bank-firm relationships in Italy, particularly the small-medium firms. It aims to examine the institutional, organizational and strategic differences between a transaction-based lending approach and a relationship-based lending approach. The study on the field is based on quantitative and qualitative data that have been gathered through a questionnaire. The book provides a survey data collection to offer a more complete and in-depth analysis of the bank-firm relationship during the financial crisis. Finally, the book discusses the results and the implications of the study.
