Policies for Innovation in Sicilia: Origins, Activities and Limits. This article examines origins,activities and limitations of the regional policies for fostering innovation conceived and implementedin Sicily during the last decade, by focusing on three relevant sectors of Sicilian economy: agrifood,industrial manufacturing and tourism. The study moves from the observation of the mounting relevancethat innovation diffusion policy has assumed in regional territorial contexts, which have the greatestmeaning in times of global-local dialectic (“glocalization”). In particular, the leading hypothesis is thatfor Sicilian micro, small and medium-sized firms operating in international settings, innovation is akey-strategy for surviving in markets that are increasingly wider, more deregulated and competitive.
