The Italian Integration Portal
Vivere e Lavorare in Italia

The Italian Integration Portal is a project co-funded by the European Fund for the Integration of third-country nationals and coordinated by the Ministry of Labour and Social Policies, which avails itself of the support of its technical agencies Isfol and Italia Lavoro, as well as of the contribution of the inistry of the Interior, the Ministry of Education, University and Research and the Ministry of International Cooperation and Integration.
In order to guarantee the implementation of services, the General Directorate of Immigration and Integration Policies has involved Regions and local administrations as partners.
The portal provides a mapping of the services offered throughout the country by the public-private network dealing with integration activities. The aim is to promote the access of foreign citizens, as a precondition to facilitate their integration into the Italian society.
The services are classified by target, territory and type of service: Italian Language, Employment, Housing, Essential Services, Minors and second generations and Intercultural mediation.
To date, portal users can access information concerning approximately 8,000 services, offered by either the associations/organizations listed in the national register of the Ministry of Labour and Social Policies or other bodies working for the social integration of foreigners.
In addition to these services, the portal highlights the most important innovations in terms of legislation, institutional initiatives and activities undertaken at supranational, national, regional and local levels. The documentary section will be enriched by the studies performed by six accredited research institutes specialized in this sector.
