Italy has shown improvement in Transparency International’s ranking over the past year, rising from 42nd to 41st place out of 180 countries in 2022. This ranking is based on the Corruption Perception Index (CPI), which measures the perception of corruption in the public sector and politics in various countries. Italy scored 56 in 2022, up three points from 2020 (remained stable in 2021). This improvement has continued since 2012, with an overall gain of 14 points in ten years. The average for Western European countries is 66 points. The least corrupt countries according to the transparency index are Denmark, Finland and New Zealand.

Reducing corrupt phenomena can therefore be an investment in growth that can contribute to the necessary change of pace in our economy.
