This paper examines the comovements of construction in Italy-s regions from 1861 to 1913.The dynamic correlations of the series- deviation cycles decline in the case of buildings,remain very low in that of railways, and tend to decline in that of other infrastructure;the total-construction correlations instead peak in the 1870s, and again after 1900.Long-term comovements are examined by tracking the dispersion of the first differencesof the measured trends. Increasing dispersion is obtained in the construction of buildingsand of non-rail infrastructure; railway construction displayed a dramatic decline indispersion, which dominates the aggregate.
