The research project aims at writing an administrative history of the civil service in the period comprised between 1970 and 2000, comparing Italy and the United Kingdom. The research will investigate change and persis-tence in national bureaucracies, paying particular attention to the relation between administrative reforms, inspired by new managerialism (Zifcack, 1994), and administrative traditions (Painter and Peters, 2010). To achieve this aim, the administrative history of Italy and United Kingdom, two European countries embedded in two different administrative fami-lies, will be compared. The period that goes from the seventies to the twenty-first century is particularly interesting for the history of western public administrations. During this age, public sector's managerialization and administrative reforms were developed under the influence of the doctrines of New Managerialism.
