  • Sokol Pacukaj

Abstract

The purpose of this article is to bring to the attention of researchers the fundamental aspects of the history of the Albanian people after the First World War and especially the 20s. After the independence from the Ottoman Empire in 1913, Albania began the challenges of building a nation from all points of view, political, economic, social, cultural etc. This article describes and analyzes these issues from a brief historical reconstruction from the ancient Illyrians to King Ahmet Zog. The methodology used in this article is qualitative and analytical, with various researches in the Archives of the Italian Army and the Central State in Albania. As a result of this research emerges how fundamental was the role of Italy in those years both from the political and especially economic point of view. Italy had the primacy of the import-export business with the small Balkan state. This primacy Italy still holds today by being the first trade partner.
