Pensioners, in the future, should get their pensions at a later age, as happens in the UK where the NI system became insolvent in 2000. This was never reported to the public but I saw the correspondence between four leading pension providers and the Treasury in 1998 which described what would happen.
The problem with Italy is a lack of taxpayers and a low rate of family formation. By exporting more of the things that people want, jobs and taxpayers can be created but at present the discussion seems to center on the division of existing spoils rather than the necessity for new monies to pay for an increasingly ageing population. More of these pensioners should be encouraged to startup micro businesses instead of gossiping, drinking coffee and imbibing wine but old habits die hard.
The young in Italy, like the young in the UK need to wake up, learn relevant languages, acquire relevant skills, training, learn NLP and how to sell, and then migrate to where the work is, just like my parents did many years ago.
