Covid-19, migrations towards Italy drop


Istat: the pandemic accentuates the demographic crisis

As of December 31, 2020, the resident population in Italy is almost 384,000 less than at the beginning of the year, as if a city as large as Florence had disappeared. It was the negative effects produced by the Covid-19 pandemic that amplified the trend of population decline in progress since 2015. This is stated by Istat, the National Institute of Statistics, which analyzed the population dynamics during the Covid-19 pandemic.

In 2020, there is a new minimum of births since the Unification of Italy, an maximum of deaths since the Second World War and a strong reduction in migration movements. Among the latter, the impact has been much greater on international migratory movements.
Enrollments from abroad (220,533 in the year 2020), already in decline in 2019 for the foreign component, show a decrease in the first two months of the year (-8.8%) and then a drop during the first wave (-66.3%) and then recover slightly (but still with a negative variation) during the year (-23.3% in the transition phase and -18.2% in the second wave).
