This paper is a kind of commentary on the different symbolic systems of three economic systems. The main hypothesis is that novelist take taken their own ethic from the main values which are necessary to develop the area where they grow according to their cultural heritage. The first kind of economy is based on agriculture (Manzoni, Nievo, Fogazzaro, Verga, Tozzi, Gadda, Pratolini, Jovine, Pasolini), the second on fishing and trade (Foscolo, Tommaseo, D’Annunzio, Pirandello, Svevo, Calvino) and the third on industry and finance (Mastriani, Cena, Valera, Bontempelli, Moravia, Sanguineti). Now we are in a revolutionary historical period, in relation to cultural choice, and the Internet world is producing a novel based not on collective value, but just on personal and singular desire.
