About us

The GESI (Geography and Social Inequality in Italy) project investigates how the geographical area of origin affects different aspects of individuals’ life courses (educational and occupational opportunities, social mobility pathways, family dynamics and internal geographical mobility) and reverberates on social inequalities in life outcomes in Italy.

With an interdisciplinary and multi-method approach, the GESI project involves five research units (Milan, Trento, Catania, Bologna and Roma Luiss) and is organically connected with the international literature as well as other projects under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.
