In this study we go back to examine the economic and sociological changes throughout the local contexts and divisions of our country. The instrument used is a research strategy that combines a two-phase principal component analysis developed by Di Franco and Marradi with multiple linear regression. From data inherent to four key moments in the recent history of Southern Italy and the whole country - 1951, 1971, 1991 and 2007 - we obtain four «photographs» of dimensions that clarify the structure of the selected variables. We then propose two models of path analysis that underline the causal links between the factors emerged from the PCA, in order to reconstruct the socio-economic changes in the Italian provinces from 1951 to 2007.
