In the context of the general decline of the Italian economy, the aerospace indus-try is one of the very few example of an innovative sector able to deal with the lib-eralization process that involved the state-owned enterprises. In fact, a new sys-temic firm, internationally and technologically advanced, appeared by the merger of several state-owned and private companies. This happened because of the pub-lic support that changed the model of state-ownership in favor of a demand-oriented policy centered around an intermediary institution. This paper shows the evolution of the space sector by the use of archival sources not yet fully explored. It proves the functioning of the institutional process that oriented the emergence of an innovative firm. The analysis sheds light on the role of technology, institutions, and economic inte-gration on the Italian industrial retreat. Despite the general decline of the Italian economy and its weak innovative activity, Alenia Spazio has been able to evolve into an innovative firm thanks to the Italian Space Agency demand-driven indus-trial policy. It concludes with the history of the internationalization process that led to State-owned multinational.
