The aim of the paper is to depict the development over time of F.S.N. as item of the financial statements of Sicily that crystallizes the duty of the Italian State to fill in the infrastructural gap that Sicily has historically experienced respect to the rest of the country. This item might be seen as a provisional State subsidy since theoretically the gap should have been closed at the end and at the same time the Sicilian Region would have ended up with be more able to provide for itself. Hence, the paper aims at assessing to what extent the article no. 38 of the Statute of Sicily - as rule that has made this capital grant formally established - has been applied, by comparing how much it has been actually assigned by the State with how much it should have been granted in line with the spirit of the rule, during the period 1990-2015.
