In Italy, the ageing of the population is leading to an increase of the pension expenditures. Before Dini reform in 1995, the earning-related contributory system was financed on a pay-as-you-go basis. It was too much generous for the economic and demographic conditions of the country, therefore it was reformed. Now the benefits are calculated on a defined-contribution formula that penalizes the early retirement and assures lower benefits. However, some considerations put the sustainability of the pension system for future generations under discussion. A multipillar system with capitalisation elements (public defined-benefit component, occupational pension funds and individual pension funds) could reach this goal. In this study, a simulation generates the replacement ratios for the multipillar system in different scenarios and shows that the passage forward this scheme is possible, necessary and, under some conditions, not too expensive.
