Question Trades In Italy

Hi, I'm interested in traveling to Italy or Sicily and spending a year or so there working as a tradesman. I would like to know what trades are popular (in demand) in Italy and if British qualifications (NVQ's) will stand over there?

I would love to hear from Plumbers, Plasterers and Painters who have worked in Italy or anyone else with any information about these trades over there

You are aware that Sicily's unemployment rate is currently about 20%, right? There are a lot of unemployed tradesmen in Sicily.

Hello, I wasn't aware that unemployment was so high in Sicily. I was there a few months ago and I saw a lot of work needing to be done so I figured opportunities would be there but I guess the money isn't which is unfortunate.

If you are of such a mind, you might be able to trade work for room & board.

Not a terrible idea but I was hoping to earn a decent wage while out there so I could rent somewhere etc

Unemployment is much lower in northern Italy; are you determined to go to Sicily?

No not at all, I would love to see Venice, Florence, Naples and Rome. In fact there's nowhere else in the world I'd rather go. I spent a couple of weeks in Sicily earlier in the year and I loved it but I think I'd like the north just as much if not more. Where would you recommend?
