This database is designed to allow the availability of data interrelabili on the fabric of southern society and economy, for the first period of globalization, but also wants to make it possible to enhance and maintain the historic nature of the papers which is spread on throughout Europe (Paris, Lyon, Roubaix, Brussels, London, Frankfurt), in which the South of Italy - always a "space of flows", for its geographical position - it was an important node of wider networks of global movement of goods, persons and capital, whenever the southern Mediterranean has acquired centrality in world political and economic balance. The start of construction of the database is possible thanks to funding the project FARO.
