Italy Report 2017

Six dichotomies to understand the changing Italy:

The 2017 Italy Report, now in its 29th edition, has grown in popularity among academics, institutions, the information system, and international observers.
Each year, the Report is built around six dichotomies, which are illustrated by six essays and accompanied by sixty phenomenological files. Thus, it addresses issues that the Institute considers representative, but not exhaustive, of Italy’s political, economic, and social current affairs through a dual reading of reality.
The Report is enriched by sample surveys, which in this year’s edition have investigated some of the topics traditionally proposed by the Eurispes: citizens’ trust in institutions, taxation, citizens’ relationships with public and private institutions, the economic condition of families, poverty, consumption, pet ownership and care, health, citizens’ perceptions of security, and justice.
