Justice, Regulation, and Society



Valério Torreggiani graduated from the Roma Tre University and obtained a Master’s degree from the same university with a dissertation about contemporary history on corporate thought in Italy. Since his PhD (2012-2015), he has turned his attention to the history of the international dissemination of corporate ideas, focusing especially on the case of Great Britain in the first half of the 20th century.

He was a post-doctoral researcher (2016-2017) in Economic History at the Roma Tre University, undergoing a project of analysis of the economic thought concerning the rural plans of the Italian fascist regime and also developing a project on the history of financial systems in the contemporary age.

He is a member of the group LISE (Laboratorio Italiano di Storia Economica) of the Roma Tre University, of the NETCOR – Network for the Analysis of Corporatism and Organized Interests and of the MAOIE project – Mapping and Analysis Organized Interests in Europe: from 1900 to our days. He has published several articles in national and international scientific journals and some chapters in books with international publishers.
