Abstract

Recently Italy has become one of the final objectives of the new migratory movements owing to its level of industrialization and the considerable increase in the standard of living which has led to the frequent unwillingness of Italian workers to accept heavy, unhealthy, humble or low paid work. This survey studies the prevalence of the different pathologies in the immigrant population, in order to evaluate the conditions of hardship and want (from separate hygienic, alimentary, environmental, working and broad social points of view) that create the context in which many pathologies appear and develop.
