This chapter examines the packaging machinery cluster in Bologna. It focuses on the mix of governance institutions affecting the industrial district of packaging machine producers, and the ‘Emilian model’ as a whole — the state, associations, and relations among firms. It argues that local collective competition goods determine the success or failure of industrial districts.

Keywords: packaging machinery industry; industrial districts; Bologna; Emilian model; LCCGs; local economy; sectoral analysis
