Discrimination and Equality Bodies in Italy

According to a survey from Statista in 2019, despite the widespread discrimination, 33 percent of respondents in Italy believed that the efforts made in the country to fight discrimination were moderately effective. In October 2019, the Italian Senate voted in favour of the establishment of an Extraordinary Commission to combat all forms of racism, anti-Semitism, incitement to hatred, and violence.

EURACTIV went to Italy to see how Italians approach discrimination today and how aware they are of the Equality Bodies.
