    (ANSAmed) - ROME, MAY 21 - More than half of Italians under 40 years old recently surveyed said that they are ready to leave the country to search for work opportunities, a report by the Coldiretti farmers' association said on Tuesday.

    The survey 'Youth in Crisis', compiled together with the Trieste-based SWG polling agency, said that due to the negative labor market, 51% of Italians under 40 feel they need to search for employment beyond the country's borders, while 73% believe that Italy offers "no future".

    Some 64% said that they would move within the country for a job.

    Instead, among the country's young farmers polled some 45% think that Italy offers possibilities for the future.(ANSAmed).
