Which regions have the highest percentage of young people who are not working, not attending any school, nor engaged in any internship or apprenticeship? Eurostat data leaves no doubt: the regions with the highest proportion of NEETs in Europe are in Italy, particularly in the south.
Compared to the rest of Europe, the number of homicides in Italy is low and the number of male victims has decreased sharply over the years. But the same cannot be said of women. Meanwhile, at the European level, the heterogeneity of homicide classifications makes counting femicides difficult.
Fewer and fewer young people, fewer and fewer graduates. Thirteen of Italy's twenty-one regions are not only in demographic decline, they are also struggling to get the remaining young people through third-level education. And it is not just the South that is struggling.
