Italy has managed four nuclear reactors until the s, but in , after the Chernobyl disaster , a large majority of Italians passed a referendum opting for phasing out nuclear power in Italy. The government responded by closing existing nuclear power plants and stopping work on projects underway, continuing to work to the nuclear energy program abroad.

According to the researchers, the first four the occupational balance, the risk of unemployment, the occupational rate for foreigners and the need for foreign occupation , are useful to measure the effects of the crisis, while the rate of preservation of the permanent job positions and the index of contractual instability are mostly aimed at measuring the quality of the work conditions.
The index of turn-over, furthermore, is useful to measure the progressive ageing of the Italian population in its working age. The tenth index is the rate of foreign workers entrepreneurship. However, it must be taken into consideration — together with the well-known differences in terms of demographic weight and of economic development that characterize the twenty regional administrative partitions — that the estimate is related only to the foreign immigrants who are regularly employed and possess the permit of sojourn.
The study remarks the clear dichotomy, in terms of occupational power attraction — and therefore of residential choices — between the Northern regions and the Southern ones Perulli, Pichierri, A the top of the list there is in fact Friuli-Venezia Giulia with a score of This last factor, though characterized by a great heterogeneity of situations, still remains a sign of success for the migrant Ambrosini, , pp. The third region in the ranking of the Moressa Foundation is Trentino-Alto Adige with a score of Among the other regions that are characterized by a strong occupational power of attraction there are Liguria A the opposite end of the ranking there are the regions of Southern Italy, with scores that are far from the national average.
The last region in the ranking is Calabria with a score as low as The economic crisis has been the catalyst of many problems that were already present in the Italian context, but emerged faster at the surface because of the global crisis.

Reading the report, one learns that the immigrants nearly always face, in renting a house, bigger difficulties than the Italians, starting from a lack of a coherent information system in the migratory project destination place, where often the only sources of information are the ethnic solidarity chains, occasional friends and colleagues at work.
Of course all these limitations sum up in increasing the obstacles that foreign citizens face in finding a proper house Cesareo, And also incremented the circular mobility of immigrant workers which takes place especially during the unemployment or the redundancy fund periods , characterize mostly by the return to the cities of first immigration, or towards other European countries, or to the country of origin.

The national average of foreign population in the province capitals is 8. The percentage of foreign population living in province capitals is Foreign residents, though, started to move to smaller towns and villages, profiting from the dispersed structure of the productive system in Northern and Central Italy and from the lower rents available in small centers. This trend has been documented, for instance, in a key region for immigration, Lombardia Nearly one fourth The record linkage system adopted by Conti et al. At both the regional and the provincial level the tendency seems to be related also, even though with smaller numbers, to the dispersal of the foreign population from the bigger cities to the smaller towns Istat, What Perocco and Cillo , p.
