Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The following speech has been pronounced at the XV Biennale of the Italian Society for Accounting History on October, 23rd, 2020, as the Introductory intervention of the Congress. The Author was Chairman of the Organizational Committee of the Congress and member of the Scientific Committee. It has the tentative status of scientific paper in order to be improved for a further process of publishing. It concerned the discerning of a number of parallel waves between English and Italian Accounting literature, since the early beginnings and until the advent of the Globalization Era, when standardization has made relatively unrelevant the specific contributions of single national streams of thought.
