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 implemented in 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 relevance that innovation diffusion policy has assumed in regional territorial contexts, which have the greatest meaning in times of global-local dialectic (“glocalization”). In particular, the leading hypothesis is that for Sicilian micro, small and medium-sized firms operating in international settings, innovation is a key-strategy for surviving in markets that are increasingly wider, more deregulated and competitive.
