I have heard that Italian men live with their parents as a racial stereotype joke and from some Italian friends. They say that this is true because they have seen these people in their environments or neighborhood. But really I want to know if there are trustworthy statistics to prove this famous claim.
Here is another one who has asked the question in an interview:
Scott Jagow: In Italy, men stay at home. And by that, I mean they live with their parents. A third of Italian men over 30 still live with mama and papa.
The country's economic minister wants them out of the house. He's proposing a $1,500 tax break for young Italians who rent. But he's taking some serious heat for calling these men "big babies."
Scott Jaglow claims that it is true that many Italian men live with their parents but without giving any exact statistics unless saying "a third"! Is there any research to prove this statistics?
