The aim of this paper is to investigate the main causes of inefficiency in the italian banking sector. Banking system consolidation and production diversification had actually brought significant advantages in reducing costs but a large improvement can be obtained by reducing non-performing loans. Bad credit rates, in fact, are still much higher than in other Euro countries. This can be also tested by estimating profit equations.
