The Entirely Italian “Poverty Regime”
Growing as a result of the two epochal crises of the last decades (Lehman Brothers and the Covid-19 pandemic), poverty is a phenomenon that is studied according to varying criteria depending on the context. Its incidence has increased to a greater extent in regions and social groups that were already at greater risk of poverty before the crises, such as in the case of the South of Italy, households with many children, and regular foreign residents. The Reddito di Cittadinanza (Citizens' Income), with its potential results and critical issues, is the main measure implemented since 2019 to counteract poverty.
