Cna, thefts and robberies in homes collapse but still 301 per day and 13 per hour
The confinement dictated by the pandemic gives checkmate to the thief but only partially and in a way still insufficient to guarantee the desired safety to the Italians. Especially when they are at home, with their loved ones. According to the report released today by the Cna, in the year of the epidemic thefts and robberies in Italian homes decreased significantly. To be precise, notes the Ministry of the Interior, in 2020 compared to 2019, thefts fell by 34.4% and robberies by 14.4%. Data to be put, obviously, in relation to the growth of remote work, missed trips and the collapse of evening outings to gyms, bars, restaurants, cinemas, theaters. Despite the decline, the figure has exceeded 110 thousand between thefts and robberies in the home. That is 301 crimes per day, almost 13 per hour. At a territorial level it is in Florence that the primacy of this unenviable ranking goes with 536.1 home thefts per 100 thousand inhabitants. On the podium, so to speak, Modena (526.7) and Ravenna (523.8) accompany her. Following, in order, are placed Asti, Pisa, Pistoia, Bologna, Monza-Brianza, Savona and Livorno. Among the big cities, Turin is 25th, Milan 30th, Rome 59th and Naples 101st. For robberies in homes Asti, Rimini and Pisa are the most affected provinces, followed by Prato, Pistoia, Parma, Vibo Valentia, Barletta-Andria-Trani, Mantua and Pescara. The Cna notes that it is quite unique, as underlined by the 2nd Report on the security supply chain in Italy drawn up by Censis, that despite the decline in this type of crime verified by the Ministry of the Interior in 2020 (-18.9%), fear to remain a victim does not retreat. It is possible that some of the crimes are not reported due to mistrust, and therefore in the common perception the feeling of greater danger persists than that which emerges from the official numbers. And it is even more likely that the fears aroused by the virus and its consequences have widened the fears of Italians.
