The journal «La Croce di Savoia» has been considered for a long time a source of great interest in the historiography on Francesco Ferrara for the particular historical circumstances in which it was published and for the first-rank role economic ideas had among the contents of its articles. Public finance,commercial policy and custom duties reform are among its most recurring topics, together with a wider range of topics of discussion such as: the institutions, their organization and their functioning; the political action of States and of political parties; the legislation over the judicial organization and over local authorities. The essay focuses on the writings pointing out the economic implications of the functioning of the public sphere, the consequences of alternative institutional structures over national economy, and the effects of the political choices by government and public authorities on general wealth.
