Summary/Abstract: According to the Italian Ministry of Labour and Social Policies, as of June 2018, in Italy there were 13,1511 Unaccompanied and Separated Children (UASC) outside their country of origin2; 92.5% of which were males and 99.2% between the ages of 14-17 (Ministero del Lavoro e delle Politiche Sociali, 2018). At the time, the highest concentration of UASC (more than 40%) resided in Sicily (ibid.); research about UASC in this region is, therefore, particularly relevant.
