Established in 1869, the Consiglio dell’industria e del commercio (Council of Industry and Commerce) was an advisory body of the Ministry of agriculture, destined to become a vehicle of mediation and representation of economic interests through the State administration itself. This role was actually played, as proved by documents at the Archivio centrale dello Stato in Rome testifying to its tireless activity of trait d’union between politics and productive activities. Unable to find its place in a public administration deeply modified after the First World War, the Council was definitely abolished in 1913.
