Tomaselli, Agrò, Fazio e Fricano show how family firms draw strength from the regional institutional context (where the region is properly intended as an administrative sub-unit at national level), as well as contribute to its evolution via their own actions. The variation in family competencies and internal dynamics lead to differences in family firms's overlla performance. The relationship with the regional institutional system in mutually sinergic - even marginal family businesses add their voice to whole, resulting in grater collective political influence, and at the same time the institutions at the regional level provide some degree of legitimacy to all players.
