Italy

Legal Situation:

Prostitution Status: Prostitution itself is legal. Streetwalking and operating or working in a brothel are not. This is not vigorously enforced. Prostitutes are not registered and no health checks are required. "Favoring" prostitution is also illegal, and that law has occasionally been used against husbands, boyfriends or landlords of prostitutes.

The age of consent: is 18; among teenagers one year difference is also legal, but minimum is 16. If a minor engages in prostitution this is considered as a crime of "moral corruption" by whomever introduced her/him to it, and the minor her/himself is institutionalized.

Finding Women:

Magazines with information: unknown.
Newspaper/Phonebook Keywords: "accompagnatrice" or "massaggiatrice"

Many small, illegal brothels, employing only one or two women, exist. They usually pay off the police. Typically, the prostitutes are transferred to another place after one week.

Streetwalking is widespread, many girls on the street are from Africa or from eastern Europe; call girls ("squillo") who operate out of their own apartments exist; they advertise in local newspaper or special ad papers as "accompagnatrice" or "massaggiatrice".
