Six dichotomies to understand Italy:

The 2013 Italy Report, now in its 25th edition, has been built, as usual, around six dichotomies, illustrated through six essays accompanied by sixty phenomenological files.

With its 1,000 pages, the Report is a useful tool for interpreting Italy as it changes. The survey conducted touched on the issues and phenomena related to each of the sections that make up the Report, which have stimulated the most recent debate and the interest of public opinion. In particular, 1,500 citizens took part in the survey and contributed to outlining the framework of the orientations present in the structure of our society. The survey was carried out between 21 December 2012 and 4 January 2013.
