The aim of this paper is to describe the first experience of the Spending Review in Italy, which took place between April 2007 and May 2008 through the work of a specific Commission (Technical Commission on Public Finance), under the political guidance of the Minister of the Economy and Finance, Tommaso Padoa Schioppa. After recalling the meaning and the goals of the Spending Review, the paper illustrates the framework, the composition, the organization, the working methods and the main proposals of the Commission. The author concludes that, compared with following chapters of the story of the Spending Review in Italy, the first experience, rarely recalled in the political debate, is still offering valid indications as for the working methods and the policy proposals.
