Another article posted in the last couple of days, this time in the Corriere della Sera, about how one in three Italians want to move to another country, dissatisfied with their own country. Not only has it lost its lusture as a vacation destination, it’s lost its appeal even for it’s own citizens. The majority of the people wanting to leave are from the northeastern part and southern part of Italy. Whereas people from Sicily and Sardinia, where “roots” are stronger, only 34.4% had an interest of moving abroad.
If so many Italians want to leave the country, why isn’t anything done to try to keep people here. I know that nothing can be done overnight, that would be expecting the impossible. Almost 55% of the repsondents of an Eurispes Survey were between the ages of 18 and 24. There just aren’t the opportunities here anymore, compared to say twenty years ago. A career that is more suited to the individual and also better pay.
