when you say net-adjusted you mean before tax, right ? Then yeah, it might be, but what people actually receive is like two thirds of the net version.

I don't know, the actual average might be more than what I said, but the median should be more in the 1300-1500 range.

In any case that's a lot of money, although many people pay it over a year through their contract.

Maybe because it only lists the gross income and not the net.

Or maybe the figure only includes full time contracts and there are many part-time workers in Italy?

Not sure. But then part-time contracts are becoming the norm. For instance I have a part-time contract and only work 10 hours, full-time would be 18 hours (I'm a teacher though). I could "complete" the contract through working in several schools in the province but that could be difficult to achieve due to time / distance / schedule issues.

Any way I think the majority of people is much lower than 2000 euros a month.
