This article deals with the empirical analysis of a policy sector which - for a number of reasons (last but not least the recent economic and financial crisis) - in recent years has become an increasingly important one: that of banks and insurance companies. In doing so, I focus on eighteen interest groups that can be differentiated in employers groups, trade unions, and consumer associations. For each of these groups I propose an organizational analysis that will shed light on both formal structures and actual resources; in addition, I present some regularity with respect to groups' lobbying activities; finally, I try to recognize the greater or lesser influence these groups have been able to exercise in relation to three very important policymaking processes (D. Lgs. 252/2005; l. 27/2012; l. 5/2014).
