The paper provides a critical analysis of the recent anti-poverty policies in Italy and their possible developments. After a synthesis of the trends of absolute poverty during the recession that began in 2008, it focuses on the evolution of the policies, in particular those adopted by the Renzi Government, with particular reference to the presentation of a draft legislative decree concerning poverty. Then we examine the range of beneficiaries of the Support for Active Inclusion (SIA), a transitional income maintenance scheme pending the introduction of the Inclusion Income (REI) required by the legislative decree. At the time of writing, we do not – and it is difficult to imagine - what will be the target of the REI. Lastly, we discuss the possible beneficiaries of the new measure, so as to check, under the various alternatives, the distance with respect to the objective of a universal measure against absolute poverty.
