It must be an Italian thing. Many of the engine assembly techs at Ducati and Ferrari factories were women when I was there last time.

Cheap labour.

WOFTAM, anything but cheap in reality. You spend a fortune training them up only for them to get pregnant and leave. You then have to employ and train somebody else; but still hold the job open for them despite the fact they never come back in the same capacity. If they do come back it will be part time and it's not much use because they become unreliable due to the responsibilities of looking after a young family.

The above is not at all PC; but take it as a statement of fact from someone who employs mostly women by necessity.

Employment
Data collected by the Ministry of Labour and Social Policy (Ministero del Lavoro e delle Politiche Sociali) show that equal opportunity policies in Italy have been ineffective, with serious imbalances remaining between men and women in this regard. On average, women in employment only earn half the amount of their male counterparts. The annual wage gap between both sexes ranges from €3,800 for employees on an open-ended employment contract to €10,000 for freelance workers. Generally, men’s income levels are higher than those attained by women, regardless of the type of employment contract. For example, male employees earn 23% more than women, male economically independent workers earn 40% more, while salaries are 24% higher for men carrying out contract work. Furthermore, 54% of ‘precarious workers’ are women, and they remain in this situation for twice as long as men. Despite the fact that women have better educational levels than men, they usually carry out work requiring lower qualifications.

Work regulations and wage policies increased job security for full-time workers while lowering the probability of temporary or part-time employment, the types of employment that mothers often want.  The number of children under 3 years old accepted and the daily hours offered are both very limited, meaning that for women working full-time, public child care is often not an option. For Italian women, working and having children are often two mutually exclusive pursuits.

Italy is a very Socialist country so I wouldn't be surprised if the regulations are worse there from the Business owners point of view.

All the stuff you read about women being paid less than men ignores the fact that women work fewer hours than men because of the responsibilities of looking after the children fall mainly on the women. The mandated award payment is exactly the same for men and women in any job covered by an industry award.
