Recent changes of Sicilian agriculture (1950-2010). Between the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, with a radical transformation of land tenure in Sicily, it was a passing from the concentrations of the middle classes of the eighteenth century, which took advantage of the crumbling of the large feudal estates concentrated in few hands, to the often exasperated fragmentation of peasant property that, to this day, returns an apparent "comminuting" passed unscathed through two centuries and even got worse during the fascist era. The Sicilian territory, especially in its inland areas, and long- term will likely continue to have among its characteristics an entirely agricultural vocation, even in the presence of forms of integration with other sectors such as tourism. On such background, this paper tries to analyze the dynamics of the agriculture starting from the past century to the contemporary period outlining the new recent changes of this economic sector.
