Didn't read the article yet, but my Nostradamus-like skills are telling me that unemployment must be pretty high in Italy?

They don't have enough discouraged workers. If people would just quit looking for work, the unemployment rate would go down. By the way, the Euro area average is 9.30%.

The Obama administration used a similar method to claim unemployment was down. They didn't count people who were working part-time or stopped looking for work (after not finding full-time employment) as unemployed. It's all about skewing the numbers.

You realize that wasn't an Obama thing, right?

It's a BLS metric that hasn't changed the way it is calculated

But don't let facts get in the way of ignorance. Can't have that!
