This essay takes inspiration from one of the first books on business, the “Libro del’arte dela mercatura” (The Book of the Art of Trade), written by Benedetto Cotrugli in 1458, in the then Kingdom of Naples. That book is an occasion to reflect on the lines of relational economics, with the hope that the past can bring us inspiration for the future.
