    This paper is aimed at examining the peculiar features of the Italian labour market in the performing arts and show business, according to data collected on annual basis by ENPALS/Ente Nazionale Assistenza Lavoratori dello Spettacolo, our ad hoc social security organisation. Data regarding those inscribed to ENPALS show significant differences in their number, average work-days and daily payments - both in the year of reference, and throughout the years - according to the respective domains in which they belong (music, theatre, cinema, radio-television, various entertainments). A particular attention is paid to the two main categories - «artists and technicians» and «salaried and managerial workers» - in which the pro- fessional groups were classified (and related data collected and displayed) until 2006. Their different insurance status and labour conditions were revealing a lot about the Italian labour market in this field and even about the more or less industrial structure of the different activities. A wish is expressed so that this kind of classification and elaboration of data will be reactivated by INPS: the Italian social security general organisation in which ENPALS, for cost saving sake, has been integrated early this year.
