Italy Report 2018

Six dichotomies to understand the changing Italy:

RESPONSIBILITY/IRRESPONSIBILITY – CULTURE/CULTURES – FEAR/COURAGE – TRUST/CONFIDENCE – GROWTH/DEVELOPMENT – FUTURE/BECOMING

The 2018 Italy Report, now in its 30th edition, has become a valuable resource for academics, institutions, the information system, and international observers.
Each year, the Report is built around six dichotomies, which are illustrated by six essays and 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 supplemented by sample surveys, which in this year’s edition investigated some of the themes traditionally proposed by the Eurispes: citizens’ trust in institutions, citizens’ evaluation of government work, the economic condition of families, savings, poverty, consumption, pet ownership and care, health, e-commerce, the family and the parent-child relationship, the role of grandparents, food and nutrition.

This year’s Report, in its thirty-first edition, revolves around the concept of RESPONSIBILITY as a “key word,” considering it essential for attempting to describe current political, cultural, economic, and social trends, both present and absent.
