English abstract

Since the 1960s, there has been a growing focus upon culture and creativity, and their relationship to the wider economy in times when the demand for novelty began to gain ground. It is in this context that the cultural industries – later associated with the concept of creative industries – assumed a growing importance, since on one hand they allow the democratization of culture and art and, on the other, they are a potential driver to the development of the economy and to job creation. Although, historically, the concept dates back to the 1960’s, it may be said that its conceptual delimitation of the creative industries emerged in the 1990’s, firstly in Australia, and later, in full force, in the United Kingdom.
