Rome, Naples, Milan and Turin count the most minors in Italy, according to a recent study, Treasure Island: Atlas of Infancy (At Risk), conducted by Save the Children. Of the cities where Italy's 11 million youth under 18 live, Rome has the most (697, 387), followed by Naples (671,000), Milan (636,610) and Turin (351,566). Of Italy's minors, 1,756,000 live in ‘relative poverty' in families that have less purchasing power than the national average; some 65 percent of minors in poverty live in the South. Italy is also home to 932,000 non-Italian minors. Of these, 6 out of 10 are second-generation immigrants, born in Italy; the majority of them live in Prato, Mantua and Cremona.
