Webinar, Monday 12th July 2021, 16:00 – 17:30

Historically, Italy has been characterised by a marked divide between North and South, with the latter constantly lagging behind in development. However, although it can be pointed out that the socio-economic situation in the South is the main cause of many of the differences at the national level, neither the North nor the South can be considered in homogeneous and monolithic terms. Within these areas, there are profound differences, specific strengths and weaknesses, and untapped potential.


This is what emerges from the report Unequal Italy that we have presented on this occasion. The report, commissioned by FEPS and FES, measures various dimensions of inequality and identifies “four Italies” and “three Mezzogiornos“. After an in-depth analysis of the various facets of the different areas, it proposes precise policy recommendations to remedy the country’s socio-economic disparities.

The report has been produced as part of European collaboration with the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung and the Foundation for European Progressive Studies at the European level. The project has previously produced a similar analysis in GermanyFinland and Romania and analyses are underway in Sweden, and Estonia. The indicators have been selected in collaboration with researchers from the Institut für Landes- und Stadtentwicklungsforschung.
