G iampaolo Garzarelli was educated at the American University, Washington, DC, Luiss-Guido Carli, Rome, the University of Connecticut, Storrs, and the University of Rome, La Sapienza.
Professor Garzarellis first research contributions lie in the field of the theory of the firm and innovation, particularly in the co-evolution of techonology and organization in voluntary open-source software production. More recently, he is trying to make time for older research interests, especially in the fields of the New Institutional Economics and Public Choice, that concern the Second Generation Theory of fiscal federalism and the disruption of institution formation under myopic stationary banditry.
