Italy is the motherland of bureaucracy. It imposes admission restrictions on all types of services, starting with the requirement to be entered in a specific register, to apply for a fee-based licence, to have an Italian residence - if not citizenship - etc. Even if belatedly, the Italian legislator has now introduced Directive (EU) 2018/958 of 28 June 2018 on a proportionality test before the adoption of new professional regulations (Legislative Decree 16/10/2010, n. 142). A new regulation to reduce regulations!
