Less than half of Italians would vote in favour of remaining in the European Union, a new survey indicates, making Italy one of the bloc's most eurosceptic countries.
According to a poll of nearly 28,000 Europeans commissioned by the European Parliament, just 44 percent of Italians surveyed said they would vote to stay in the EU, the lowest percentage of all 28 member states – including the UK, which is actually leaving, and where 53 percent of respondents said they would vote to remain if they had the chance.
Yet more Brits than Italians currently oppose the EU, with only 24 percent in Italy saying they would vote to leave the bloc compared to 35 percent in the UK.
In Italy a higher percentage of respondents were undecided, with 32 percent saying they weren't sure how they'd vote.
