Prostitutes from 60 different countries currently practise their trade in Italy, many of them controlled by foreign mafia gangs, according to a study by a group which seeks to help these women. According to the Gruppo Abele, headed by the priest Don Ciotti, there are some nine million working prostitutes in Italy who charge an average of 30 euros and generate a turnover in the neighborhood of some 90 million euros a month. ''Times have changed but the story remains the same. Today these unfortunate women are in many cases in the hands of foreign organized crime gangs who have occupied a market left open by our own mafia groups who have turned to more profitable activities like drug trafficking,'' Don Ciotti observed. The Gruppo Abele report was drawn up issued to coincide with this year's 50th anniversary of the so-called Merlin Law which outlawed brothels. The report by Don Ciotti's group contrasted with one earlier this year from the National Sexologists Association which, however, dealt more with Italian prostitutes. In their report, the sexologists claimed that prostitution in Italy had undergone a transformation in terms of both those who practise the profession and where and when it is practised. According to the study prostitutes in Italy today are no longer the old-style, uneducated working class girls who walk the streets. The modern prostitute, the study observed, were technology-savvy women who often held degrees, preferred political talk shows over 'reality' programs and were content with their line of employment. The single largest category of prostitutes today is made up of students (27%), followed by housewives (18%) and women who held regular part-time jobs and, from time to time, receive clients at their own home for a little extra cash to help make ends meet. This latter group includes employees of call centers but also factory employees and white-collar staff. In the majority of the cases women engage in this profession by choice and 43% consider it a temporary situation. The work hours have also changed and today 26% of prostitutes prefer to exercise their profession in the early afternoon, from 1pm to 3pm, while only 16% still opt for the night. One of the biggest changes among prostitutes is their socio-cultural profile. Today 34% hold degrees or diplomas, 11% speak at least one foreign language correctly, 9% read five or six books a year and 38% read at least one newspaper a day. Over 50% of prostitutes today prefer to watch a political talk show, news analysis program or history documentary over the popular reality shows. In regards to where the profession is practised, today's prostitutes prefer their own home to the traditional sidewalk, considering it more safe and comfortable, with 21% entertaining clients for no more than three hours and 17% no more than four hours.

More news from Italy. Sounds great. Maybe Rome will be the new sex tourism capital of the world and start fighting against Amsterdam.


Rome setting up ‘red light’ districts for prostitution, says mayor


ROME, February 12, 2015 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Days after the Vatican announced a “world day of prayer” to stop human trafficking, the leftist mayor of Rome, Ignazio Marino, has said that the city will be establishing a “Red Light” district where prostitution will be tolerated and “regulated.”


Starting in April, the city plans to designate a non-residential business neighbourhood in the south of Rome as a “tolerance” zone where prostitutes may ply their trade. The city will provide health and social work officials to promote “safer sex.” Police will be ordered to levy fines of 500 € for women caught seeking men outside the designated area.


If it is considered a success, there are plans to expand the prostitution zones to three other areas of the same neighbourhood of Rome. Marino said that the proposal will take highly visible street prostitution away from parks and other public places where families and children go.


Julia Storm, deputy leader of the Democratic Party in the city council, said, “The institution outright of some areas in Rome as ‘Red Light’ cannot resolve the issue of prostitution. Indeed, it might even appear to legitimize a phenomenon that must be fought.”


Francesco Rutelli, a former mayor of Rome and far-left European politician associated with the Greens and Radicals, also criticized the plan. “Are you aware that the Italian law punishes those facilitating prostitution?” he asked Marino.


Marino has made his mark in Italian national politics as a champion of leftist social policies by registering same-sex partnerings on Rome’s city marriage registry. He told media on Friday that the prostitution zone plans were part of efforts to battle sex trafficking that is thought to be rife throughout Italy.


But a study of data from 116 countries by researchers at London School of Economics and the University of Heidelberg make nonsense of the claim that “regulation” is a way to stop human exploitation in the “sex trade.” The study, published in the journal World Development, found that legalizing prostitution significantly pushes up the prevalence of the phenomenon of human trafficking.


Two market forces are at work, pulling in opposite directions: “The scale effect of legalized prostitution leads to an expansion of the prostitution market, increasing human trafficking, while the substitution effect reduces demand for trafficked women as legal prostitutes are favored over trafficked ones,” the researchers said.


“Our empirical analysis for a cross-section of up to 150 countries shows that the scale effect dominates the substitution effect. On average, countries where prostitution is legal experience larger reported human trafficking inflows.”


The act of selling sex is legal in Italy, but pimping and owning brothels are crimes. The changes since the 1990s to immigration regulations throughout the European Union has contributed to a huge and apparently uncontrollable problem with human trafficking.


Italy, with its long and difficult-to-police coastlines facing Africa on one side of the peninsula and the impoverished post-Soviet Balkan countries on the other, presents an ideal staging location for traffickers bringing people for forced labor to other parts of Europe.


Documents from the US State Department say, “Children subjected to sex trafficking in Italy are from Romania, Nigeria, Brazil, Morocco, and Italy, specifically Roma and Sinti boys who may have been born in Italy.”


A UN report says that “the most common form of human trafficking (79%) is sexual exploitation” and that “worldwide, almost 20 per cent of all trafficking victims are children.” It adds that in West Africa and some parts of Asia, “children are the majority” being up to 100 percent of those persons sold into slavery.


A 2010 briefing paper on transnational crime from the Washington-based think tank Global Financial Integrity, estimated that globally, human trafficking for sex or forced labor is an industry worth $31.6 billion US a year. Moreover, trafficking in human beings is associated with billions more in other criminal activities such as drug and weapons trafficking that contributes to a vast international criminal “shadow” economy, comprised of an “illicit flow of goods, guns, people, and natural resources” worth approximately $650 billion per year.


The State Department estimates that as many as 27 million people a year are trafficked for forced labor, with the great majority, 82 percent, being for the “sex trade.”
