The call is entitled “Mastering youth transitions: Italy as a case for the contemporary complexities” and it aims at focusing on Italy as an emblematic case for analyzing the transitions towards adulthood.

The seminar is in Italian and will take place on zoom.

The Sole24ore, which is the most important economic journal in Italy, asked me for a comment on the widespread phenomenon of the bogus self-employment among young professionals.
