Today, the delivery of care to non-self-sufficient people (Long Term Care) is vastly debated among the civil society and politics both at the European and national levels. Particularly, the pandemic has relaunched the discourse on the effectiveness of the protection of the elderly’s welfare rights and has recalled new institutional solutions.
Even though numerous European countries have already transformed their welfare systems to respond to the change of the care demand derived by ageing, Italy has only recently opened the pathway to a national reform of Long Term Care. Precisely, Law 33 of 2023 on political intervention in favour of the elderly is the first segment of its ongoing implementation.
The presentation aims to examine the launch and the perspectives of implementation of the ongoing Italian reform of Long Term Care through interdisciplinary lens and to promote a session of analysis and information on this contemporary and relevant question for the transformation of the welfare system.


The seminar will be held in Italian.

The presentation will be in-person in the FBK Aula Piccola while seats last and online.

Registration by November 22, 2023 at 12:00 a.m. is required in order to arrange the connection.
