      The introduction to the special issue of Sociologia del lavoro written for its forty years of publications (1978-2018), was the occasion for the entire editorial staff, whose members have been working collectively for many years, to retrace the most representative moments that characterized the life of the Journal. In the first part, the deepening concerned with the reasons of its born, its remarkable role on the transformations of Italian and non-Italian work, its national and international networks which have been and still operate on these themes, its public and international vocation, up to the main themes that have characterized its publications. In the second part, they are exposed the perspectives of the Journal and its need for transformation of some organizational and scientific aspects. Lastly, in the third part, the themes more relevant of the essays published in this special issue have been presented, linking them to the history of the Journal and to its specific characteristics.

  • Vocational training, labour market and economic crisis in Veneto. A gender
    • Abstract: Marco Betti
      This article presents the key findings of an empirical study on the effects of the action carried out by the Regional government of Veneto to improve the employability of female workers in the first phase of the economic crisis, from 2008 to 2010. The first section examines the main labour market indicators at the regional level. In particular, we call attention to labour market segmentation, unemployment and gender inequalities. The second section shows the basic features and outcomes of unemployment training schemes (initial education and vocational training). Finally, the analysis adopts a qualitative approach based on in-depth interviews with key informants. From a gender perspective, strong and weak points of regional training system are identified.

  • The human face of flexible jobs. The results of a qualitative research on
           the sociolaboural inclusion of "fragile resources" in Sardinia
    • Abstract: Daniela Pisu
      The article analyzes the social and human costs of flexible working in the liquid society (Bauman, 2011). The contractual flexibility increases forms of poverty related to the insufficient allocation of human and social capital of vulnerable workers. The case study analyzes the possibility of conceiving the local welfare strategies as a social service instrument to meet the needs of composite sociolaboural inclusion of whom we have referred to as fragile resources. The work has been divided into two stages of investigation. The first explores in depth the decision-making processes underlying the action plan to combat poverty in the context of Sardinia; the second focuses on the survey outcome of fragile resources returning to the community context as competent resources in terms of the acquisition of coping strategies and capabilities, despite the structural weaknesses of local welfare to complement poverty alleviation with the labor policies.

  • Sociologia del lavoro in the first ten years of its life: an analysis and
           an evaluation
    • Abstract: Giuseppe Bonazzi
      The paper is made of two sections. In the first one the international debate about sociology of work in the first decade is discussed. While in the first years the major argument was how either to soften or to get rid of Taylorism, in the later years the main debate concerns the divide between Fordism and post-Fordism, until the appearance of the Japanese model (in Western term, lean production). In the second section, after exposing the major features of Sociologia del lavoro, the thirty-six issues of it published in the decade are examined. Since all the issues, but two, show on their cover which problems are discussed, it has been possible to put them into six different classes: 1. The state of art: debates, problems, knowledge; 2. Organization and quality of work; 3. Professionalism and intermediate roles; 4. Non industrial sectors; 5. Cooperation, youth conditions, marginality; 6. Subject’s strategies, cultural approaches, temporal dimension.

  • Other stories. Emerging voices and issues in the first decade of
           Sociologia del lavoro
    • Abstract: Barbara Poggio
      The chapter reviews the first ten years of Sociologia del lavoro, endeavouring to highlight what the predominant representation of actors within the labour market has been, and to identify the missing, or less visible subjects. In particular, the analysis reveals that, although the majority of the contributions present as a reference figure a male, adult, full-time worker employed within the industrial sector, new figures and new working patterns in fact emerge over the same period, and are often intertwined. Specific attention shall be paid to the articles regarding women’s work, given the significance of the phenomenon and the relating debate during the considered period. The focus will mainly be on how (and by whom) the issue of female employment is progressively included and themed in the sociological debate regarding work. Moreover, three main types of contributionsare identified and discussed in greater detail.

  • Sliding down. new Spanish and Italian migrants’ labour insertion in
           Germany during the economic crisis
    • Abstract: Simone Castellani
      During the last years, the freedom of movement in the EU has represented a chance for the workers of Peripheral-countries, affected by the economic crisis, to find employment opportunities in the Core-countries. However, right in these countries the requests to limit EU citizens’ mobility and welfare access are becoming stronger. Drawing from an ethnographic study carried out in two German regions with Italians and Spaniards aged 18-39 years who moved to Germany for work since 2008, the paper first, analyses the systemic dynamics which conditions the intra-UE contemporary mobility. Secondly, it highlights how the majority of Italians and Spaniards enter the secondary German labour market, even if they have a cosmopolitan profile, shaping a differential inclusion in the host society.

  • Unemployment and entrepreneurship: a bottom-up analysis
    • Abstract: Rosamaria Bitetti
      This research provides a bottom-up analysis of the unemployment by surveying a stratified sample representative of the Italian unemployed population (750 respondents, differentiated by age, geographical location, education level and duration of unemployment) about the main obstacle for them to start a business activity. The behavioral model used is that of latent entrepreneurship, i.e. entrepreneurial ability is spread among the population but only become effective when motivation and expected reward are high, and impediments are perceived as conquerable. We asked our respondents to rank 26 obstacles derived from seven sets of deterrents related to entrepreneurship most frequently addressed in scientific and policy literature: Personal attitude and risk aversion; Access to finance; Market outlook; Economic and managerial competence; Regulatory costs and administrative burdens; Corruption and organized crime; Networks of competence and support.

  • Sociology of work: a selfie
    • Abstract: Domenico De Masi
      The essay intends with a thorough and motivated analysis not only to propose the analysis of the transformations that have taken place in the work but also to demonstrate how the Journal has, step by step and in different ways, accompanied such transformations. In this path, Sociologia del lavoro has always been retaining its excellence and been maintaining direct contact with the changing reality, giving it a scrupulous and polyphonic reading. The author reviews the prevailing theoretical orientations of the sociology of work that he defines: "structural sociology" and "managerial sociology" with their specific and distinctive features, their privileged subjects, the subjects who represented them, without forget the precise references to our country. The essay ends with the analysis of what the author calls "missed opportunities" in a world where ever deeper and more rapid transformations were affecting as never on the world of production, employment and labour.

  • The meaning of a tradition
    • Abstract: Arnaldo Bagnasco
      The author begins his own reflections by questioning the specifics of the 1990s. The answer is sought in a review of the trend of advanced economies, including the Italian one, identifying the salient aspects of the transition that marked that decade. The central part of the essay is devoted to the discovery by sociologists "of the archipelago of industrial districts", local societies in which economic, political and cultural aspects are congruent. Just sociology, oriented to connect the different aspects of phenomena, to grasp the social facts formed in space, to read the root ofeconomic phenomena in social dynamics, has contributed to the development of interesting interpretive keys of the districts. Always with reference to the analysis of local development, in the second part the author resumes the theme of the city as a local system, resuming the concepts of global-city and global city region.

  • NEET: a new social category or varieties of NEET'
    • Abstract: Alessio Berti
      This paper aims to describe the heterogeneity of the NEET category and its consequences in the use of the NEET category as statistical indicator and in defining target for policy interventions. Describing the evolution of NEET concept from its first introduction in Great Britain at the end of the ‘1990s to its adoption as an indicator at European level, the author highlights the heterogeneity of the category as a logic consequence of its definition. Subsequently, the author will present two disaggregation types proposed by Eurofound, one on a theoretical level and one empirical, used to describe the NEET sub-groups. We will see the composition of the NEET population and the different levels of social vulnerability among the sub-groups. In the conclusions, the author will highlight how the articulation of the NEET category can contribute to the implementation of policies targeted towards disadvantaged young people.

  • @@@ Workers Wanted: an analysis of the job application online at the time
           of e-recruitment
    • Abstract: Davide Arcidiacono
      The digital transformation of job matching is taking place also in our country but the Italian research about this issue is still underdeveloped. The paper aims to analyze the online Italian labor demand with the new methodological approach of digital ethnography. Data have revealed some unexpected effects of e-recruitment strategies, highlighting a specific stratification and segmentation of the labor demand online. The digitalization can lower some barriers of access and information asymmetries in the labor market but, at the same time, it seems to increase the volume of the signals required enhancing selectivity and competition between different categories of workers.

  • Changes in Italian political economy during the ’90s: between incomplete
           reformism of national policies and the mobilitation of local societies
    • Abstract: Luigi Burroni
      Focusing on the ’90s, this article adopts a multi-level perspective that links the transformations of the national political economy with the changes that took place at local and regional level. As for the transformations of the national political economy, I will show the emergence of the so-called ‘incomplete reformism’, a model characterized by the making of some effective reforms in labor and welfare flexibility, but which has overlook other policy areas such as innovation, productivity, employment quality, and the set up of a safety net for workers exposed to new social risks. As for the changes at the local level, I will underline that there have been changes both in local regulation and in productive organization that showed a notable resilience, but that were not able to overcome the constraints given by the absence of well-targeted national policies.

  • Technology, work and organization: from the study of work to the study of
           working practices
    • Abstract: Silvia Gherardi
      The article re-reads what has been published in the years 1998-2007 by Sociologia del lavoro through the "lens" of knowlege and knowing-in-practice. It aims to make visible the "traces" left in the Journal by the debate on knowledge, knowledge workers, and community of practice. In so doing this article will connect the journal to other journals and other articles that gave form to the debate in the same years. In those years knowledge has been conceived and studied both as a resource for the firm and as an activity situated in working practices. The passage from an epistemology of possession, in which knowledge is a "thing" to an epistemology of practice, in which knowledge is a collective knowledgeable activity, changed the way of conceiving technology, work and organization. From being separate entities, technology, work and organization are entangled relationships within a practice.

  • A proposal for reducing unemployment in the tertiary sector through
           changing time usage. The Spanish case
    • Abstract: Cristina Pardo-García, Maja Barac
      Unemployment is markedly higher in Spain than in other EU countries, having negative economic and social effects for individuals and for the society as a whole. Additionally, Spain employees show low productivity rates. This is in part due to the economic dependency on the tertiary sector, but also to some social aspects, namely, a different organization of the working hours and the split shift (including a long break for lunch) which complicates the reconciliation of work and family lives. The authors focus on the service sector and propose concentrating the work day to finish work earlier and to add a new shift in the evening to allow shops, banks and the important hospitality sector, among others, to remain open all day. The generalisation of a double straight shift, instead of a single split shift, should generate expected social benefits like the enhancement of productivity and the creation of jobs, i.e. unemployment reduction.

  • Households, gender and work-life articulation
    • Abstract: Núria Sánchez-Mira
      The article presents a revision of the literature that has given the household a central role when studying different dimensions of the gender division of labour. One body of literature has looked at the household as a space of definition of (female) labour supply. Another stream of research has focused on the gendered division of domestic and care labour. These contributions are reviewed in the article and it is thereby argued that more integration of approaches and findings across them is warranted. Through this revision, the paper aims to put forward the need for future research to look at the gendered interdependences across work and family domains over the life course. Finally, the article highlights the advances of research on the societal contexts and institutions that shape gendered patterns of employment and housework, but argues that there is still a long road ahead in the study of the social embeddedness of work-life articulation.

  • The great repression: enterprise, financial accumulation and work in the
           enrichment economy
    • Abstract: Filippo Barbera, Angelo Salento
      The article reconstructs an aspect of the neoliberal transformation that has been overlooked by social sciences: the transformation of the mechanisms of capitalist accumulation. After the Second World war, it has been assumed that capitalist accumulation, albeit its strategies and tools can change, is always a productive one. By the end of the 1970s, however, productive accumulation, or the tendency to accumulate surpluses through the recursive enlargement of the productive bases of capitalism, has been progressively replaced by financial accumulation. Not only has there been an expansion of financial activities, but production activities - even in the foundational economy - have been increasingly oriented by the logic of financial activities: short-termism, shareholder value maximization, and the transformation of profit into rent. The article shows that this trend is the basis of the transformation of the organization and work observed over the past thirty years, as well as the growth of inequality. In conclusion, the article proposes some guidelines for a research program on the enrichment economy, underlining the importance of the foundational economy as a suitable space for its overcoming.

  • Conversation with Bianca Beccalli on gender, work, representation, and
           public policy
    • Abstract: Bianca Beccalli, Marco Bacio
      The paper’s title evokes a conversation; in fact, it has been constructed like a joint revisitation of Bianca Beccalli’s forty years work on labour, gender, and politics, reconsidering old challenges and facing emergent ones. The paper deals with two levels of analysis: a historical and sociological interpretation of social movements, work, and politics on the one side, while dealing on the other side with the parallel development of concepts and categories. The two levels intertwine since theories emerged out of the influence of historical developments. But they also had someinfluence on the course of events, as it often happens in social sciences: equality versus difference, sex and gender, the definition of justice, equal opportunities, and capabilities are good example of the continuing interface between historical facts and conceptual categories. At the end, the authors consider the 2017 mobilisation around the international women workers’ day of the 8th of March, which involve different types of working and non-working women bringing up new issues and new forms of collective actions.

  • Labour and conflicts in the transport logistics chain
    • Abstract: Andrea Bottalico
      The article presents an overview of the working conditions and conflicts across the entire logistics chain. To achieve this aim, the structure of the supply chain developed by Meersman et al. (2009) is illustrated and integrated. The premise of this approach relies on the peculiar perspective of the analysis along the logistics chain, in order to grasp both the variety of the labour regimes and the overall framework. The final objective of this article is to connect such perspective to the general trends that are crossing the transport chain, taking into account the general management of the logistics chain, the global factors and the power relationships. The hypotheses of a tendency towards rising contingent labour along the logistics chain and of a transition of the institutional structures dictated by external pressures will be discussed.

  • Rowing upstream: the resilience of immigrants in the long Italian
    • Abstract: Maurizio Ambrosini
      Economic recession seems to have called off the main motivation for the acceptance of immigrants in Italy: that of labour market’s needs. This article shows that, despite many difficulties, immigrants have increased their weight on employment, passing from less than 7% in 2008 to more than 10% in 2015. Persisting segmentation of the labour market and expansion of menial jobs are the main explanations. Furthermore, the fiscal balance between immigrants and the State at present is in favour of the latter, as among immigrants pensioners are almost absent and people in need of health care are less than in the Italian population. Differences in age distribution explain this fact. At the same time, immigrants are socially vulnerable and risk to fall into poverty more than the Italians: the shortage of protection by family networks, especially the absence of relatives receiving pensions, and the obligation to send remittances are the most meaningful explanations. In conclusion, the article claims that Italian society is still in need of immigrants’ labour, and an economic recovery could not occur without a growing participation of immigrants in the Italian labour market.
