    Abstract

    This paper aims at providing an economic analysis of the intergenerational social mobility in Italy. The data come from ISTAT. We present absolute mobility and social fluidity tables. We also examine the cohort effect, finding for Italy an increase in intergenerational absolute mobility, and a stabilization in the cohort 1951-1960. Social fluidity goes up for the upper and the lower classes. Through multinomial logit models, we try to predict the variations in the probability of belonging to the different social destinations according to social origin, level of education, own talents, age and gender. We confirm the family background importance in Italy.
