A latest report by the National Bureau of Statistics ISTAT has found that large swaths of mostly young and highly educated Italians have continued to move abroad in search of working opportunities.

Italy's young workers have been leaving for decades. However the report has highlighted that over 300,000 Italians aged 18 to 39 emigrated to neighbouring European countries and overseas between 2015 and 2019, up 33% compared to 2014. One in three of them were graduates.
