Six dichotomies to understand the changing Italy:

PUBLIC/PRIVATE   SOVEREIGNISM/GLOBALISM   WORK/TECHNOLOGY   IDENTITY/DIFFERENCE   REALITY/REPRESENTATION   SAFETY/INSECURITY

The 2019 Italy Report, now in its 31st edition, has over time become an appreciated point of reference for scholars, institutions, the information system and international observers.
Each year, the Report is built around six dichotomies by methodological choice, illustrated by six essays accompanied by sixty phenomenological files. Thus, through a dual reading of reality, it addresses issues that the Institute considers representative, though not exhaustive, of Italy’s political, economic and social current affairs. The Report is enriched by sample surveys that, in this year’s edition, have explored some of the topics traditionally proposed by Eurispes and others of recent interest: trust in institutions, opinion on the work of the government, the economic situation of families and consumption, the world of work, the euro and Europe, opinion on ethical issues, living wills and end of life, gambling, the relationship between citizens and public television, the world of animals, new eating habits and the feeling of security among citizens.

The Report also uses phenomenological data sheets to address several other topical issues, such as, for example, farm labour and trafficking in human beings, migratory phenomena as seen through the media, the state of the museum network system, and the capacity for innovation in Italian products, digital in museum heritage, food waste, the development of microcredit, creative recycling, labour issues, volunteering, the use of drugs, fake news and its effects on consumption, the economy of beauty, and again, the business of football, vaccines, Big Data, alcoholism, smoking and the sugar tax.

The 2019 edition revolves around the concept of QUALITY, chosen as a “keyword”, to underline, in particular for its lack, which we seem to detect, what distinguishes the social, economic, political and cultural trends taking place in the country. The 2019 Italy Report, now in its 31st edition, has evolved into a valuable resource for academics, institutions, the information system, and international observers.

The Report also employs phenomenological data sheets to address a variety of other topical issues, such as farm labour and human trafficking, migratory phenomena as seen in the media, the state of the museum network system, and the capacity for innovation in Italian products, digital in museum heritage, food waste, microcredit development, creative recycling, and labour.

The 2019 edition revolves around the concept of QUALITY, which was chosen as a “keyword” to emphasise, in particular for its lack, which we seem to detect, as what distinguishes the country’s social, economic, political, and cultural trends.
