This paper refers to the evaluation of the technical efficiency of Sicilian hospitals,based on official data provided by the Italian Ministry of Health. We used bothdescriptive (in particular: the Barber’s nomogram) and explanatory methods (DEAmodels) in order to highlight some remarkable features and implications of them and tocompare the different results produced. Some results contradict the stereotypes on thesupposed inefficiency of public hospitals as opposite to the efficiency of private ones.
