Between 1948 and 1952, under the Marshall Plan, the United States transferred 130 billion dollars to Europe to help its recovery from WWII. During the 1950s and 1960s, Italy – the third largest recipient – moved from being a war-ravaged agricultural country to the seventh most industrialized economy of the world. Did the Marshall Plan determine the Italian growth after WWII? Or would have Italy recovered nevertheless?
