Riassunto:  A central issue in the science of complex systems is the quantitative characterization of complexity. In the present work we address this issue by resorting to information geometry. Actually we propose a constructive way to associate with a-in principle, any-network a differentiable object (a Riemannian manifold) whose volume is used to define the entropy. The effectiveness of the latter in measuring network complexity is successfully proved through its capability of detecting a classical phase transition occurring in both random graphs and scale-free networks, as well as of characterizing small exponential random graphs, configuration models, and real networks.
