    A high unemployment rate is a typical European issue. During the ’80s and the ‘90s one tried to so solve such problem introducing labour market flexibility (due to the Neoliberals ideology). Though, social tensions had risen because of the uncertainty and the lack of securities flexibility implies. Flexicurity was born as a way to settle workers’ and enterprises’ requests. It worked well in Denmark and in the Netherlands. According to the European Commission, Danish flexicurity traced out a path for labour market reforms all over the European Union. The present work takes part into the debate on the portability of the Danish model in Italy. It is composed of 3 parts. In the 1st part we will expose and analyse the Danish model. In the 2nd one we will present the current situation of the Italian labour market and, finally, in the 3rd section we will deal with the doubts the application of the flexicurity in Italy presents.
