With my colleague Roberta Cucca we have published an article on the open access journal CAMBIO entitled “Architects and Consultants between Formal Regulation and Organised Professionalism“. 

The article deals with similarity and differences among consultants and architect in Italy, stemming from empirical results deriving from the project “The Political Economy of medium-class self-employment” promoted by Consiglio Italiano per le Scienze Sociali. Despite the difference in regulation that derives from the different public acknowledgement of the two professions, the research shows increasing similarity in the use of organizations to cope with the insecurity of being self-employed.
