It is unprofitable in Italy to live alone

From year to year over the past few years in Italy there is a special holiday - San Faustino or "Day of lovers". It’s easy to guess that all lonely Italian hearts raise their glasses February, 15.

And now, a day after an unusual date, the Italian National Statistical Agency (Istat) conducted a study with the association of agricultural producers Coldiretti, the results of which are simply amazing. According to experts, single Italians, of whom there are more than 7 million in the country, were at a disadvantage. Today, they argue, living alone is almost an affordable luxury. During a crisis, everyone single Italian spends 66 percent more moneythan families of at least two people.

The day following Valentine's Day is celebrated in every third house. Of all Italian families, 31% are incomplete.

The number of single people has grown significantly in Italy over the past few years. Thus, the highest level of loneliness was recorded in the Friuli-Venezia-Giulia region (35.6 percent) and Valle d'Aosta (more than 39 percent). Perhaps these figures can be explained by the fact that the residents of the above regions, being very wealthy, simply do not seek to create a family so as not to divide property in the future. But in the southern regions of Italy the opposite situation is observed. Representatives of not the most prosperous parts of the country are not afraid to lose their fortune; therefore, large families are not uncommon here.

Researchers, however, claim that loneliness is a real obstacle course. Italians who live in the house alone are much more difficult to make ends meet than families whose apartments have different voices. A Coldiretti analysis revealed that Italian people who prefer to enjoy only their company spend about 330 euros a month on food and basic necessities, while a full-fledged family takes only 204 euros, which is 62 percent less.

Moreover, lovers of peace and tranquility are forced to independently pay for rental housing and / or utilities and travel. But on the other hand, landlords will charge less for a one-room apartment than for a whole house, and the money that would be spent on heating a large living space, loners could spend on refueling the car with gasoline.

Many Italians live alone not at all because of their squabble nature or their own preferences. The number of lonely people is steadily increasing every year, and more and more often they become old people.

As part of the study, sociologists came to the conclusion that, most often, representatives of the elderly population of the country try to get their share of communication when going to a local store or market. Retirement Italians seek to learn the latest news in the church. They also enjoy communicating with their peers in lines at the doctor or in kindergarten, where they come for grandchildren.
