Interesting Place #125 - Italy

The average age of stay at home adults in Italy is one of the highest in Europe.

(According to the Italian national statistics office more than seven out of 10 18-39-year olds still live with their parents. It's so bad that suggestions have been made that Italy needs a new law to force grown-up children to leave their parents' home. They've even got a name for them - bamboccioni - or "big babies". This all came to a head recently when a judge ordered a father to carry on paying a living allowance to his 32-year-old live-in daughter. I thought when I first read this that she might be retarded, in which case, fair does, but seemingly she graduated 8 years ago. I guess she knows she's got a cushy gig, I can only hope she supports her dad as he ages.)
