Il Financial Times pubblica un articolo sulla perduta Dolce Vita dell'Italia e forse spiega perche` tante persone fuggono all'estero, Inghilterra compresa.
You walk around Reggio Emilia and you think: this is paradise. Here, on a sun-dappled autumnal morning, was the paceless, impeccable life of a northern Italian provincial town. Well-dressed locals swarmed through ancient piazzas. But it was an illusion of paradise. “Crisis” isn’t the word for Italy any more, says the British historian of Italy, John Foot. A “crisis” ends, whereas Italy just keeps declining, like almost no other developed country since 1945. Real incomes are now lower than 15 years ago. Over three visits to northern Italy this autumn, I’ve tried to understand how ceaseless decay changes the way a country lives.The “lost generation” of young Italians suffers most.
