    The name of Marco Minghetti (1818-1886) is inextricably associated to the balanced budget achieved under his stewardship of the Ministry of Finances in 1876. With a series of “Lectiones” named after Minghetti Istituto Bruno Leoni aims to establish an authoritative and regular forum on the issues of public finances, which are bound to have an ever greater salience in the public debate. Thanks to the presence of renowned speakers and distinguished discussant, the “Lectio Marco Minghetti” aspires to be a reference point in the Italian public debate
