Survey says most Italians approve of multicultural society

Rome, May 22 - Over 80% of Italians (81%) said that they approve of living in a multicultural society, but 21.7% say that they are unhappy that this increases the likelihood of mixed marriages, a report by the statistics agency Istat said on Wednesday. About 20% of the population, or eight million people, had reservations about the idea of a multicultural society, the survey said. The 21st edition of Istat's annual report was presented on Wednesday in Rome and focused special attention on the "problems and potentialities emerging from the profound economic crisis that the country is going through," the agency said. Besides an economic and social overview of Italy, the report also surveyed citizens about their feeling of the economic situation, the effects of globalization and environmental issues.
