How did Italy, once symbol of large families, transform into the nation with the lowest birth rate? The country has now become a case study all over the world, especially considering the enormous consequences of the demographic decline in terms of economic development and labor, welfare, foreign policy and political stability.
Written by Antonio Golini with Marco Valerio Lo Prete, Italiani poca gente (Luiss University Press, 2019) contains a preface by Piero Angela. The book analyzes Italian demographics, where deaths outnumber births, clarifying who the topic was long a taboo, and offering proposals to remedy a situation that appears to be without a solution.
