This paper gives an overview of the recent labor market reform in Italy. We focus on the trade-off underlying the spirit of the reform: to increase the use of open-ended contracts the reform reduced the opportunity of (mis)using of temporary contracts and concurrently reduced the costs of individual firings.Furthermore the unemployment subsidy system and the temporary short-time work scheme (Cassa Integrazione) was vastly overhauled. We provide the details of the debate that followed some of the most controversial points of the reform and show some preliminary evidence of the potential problems facing its implementation
