Report on Welfare in Italy
by Melania D’Angelosante
The main aim of this report is to give a general picture of the present condition of welfare in Italy , also extended to its relationship with the economic recession.
However, the analysis will be focused on several sectors, even though really important, which are health, social assistance, social housing. It will be also focused on specific cases regarding some policies in the field of education, work and social security (i.e. aid for students with disabilities and family benefits). This choice is due primarily to the will to leave out of the study most of the education and work sector (including social security, strictly related to the work policies), which are generally regulated and managed on the basis of their own particular needs.
