ATTILIO TREZZINI was born in Rome on April 25, 1961. He studied Economics at La Sapienza University of Rome, where he also obtained a PhD in Political Economy under the supervision of Professor Garegnani. In the years following his PhD, after a period of research at the University of Turin, he joined Roma Tre University, where he worked as a researcher and associate professor of Political Economy, and later of the History of Economic Thought.
His research interests have focused on theories of growth and accumulation that recognize the crucial role of demand expansion, contributing to the development of the Classical-Keynesian approach to growth analysis. He has paid particular attention to the links between the theoretical principles of accumulation analysis and the explanation of the determinants of value and distribution that are necessarily assumed – even implicitly – in analyzing economic growth. He in fact adheres to the theoretical position according to which Keynes’s theoretical contribution can be extended to the analysis of growth and accumulation only by abandoning the principles of neoclassical theories and adopting the explanation inherent of income distribution due to classical economists.

A characteristic of his research work is the attention to the history of ideas, believing that current theories can only be effectively understood if framed within the historical evolution of ideas and considering it as the result of an evolution marked by theoretical breakthroughs, conflicts, and defeats where abandoned paths are not necessarily the least valid. Since his research has focused on the role of consumption in growth, he has dedicated efforts to reconstructing the analysis of the determinants of consumption, identifying theoretical approaches forgotten in the determination of consumption and the role that consumption plays in economic growth.
