Below are the opinions issued by UNAR for matters relating to housing and living:

Opinion n. 25 – Rep. n. 477 del 04/07/2011 

Poste Italiane publishes a tender document for the sale of its own property, establishing, among other requirements, that the subjects entitled to purchase must have the “Italian citizenship”. The Guido Pacini Foundation and ASGI ask Poste Italiane to rectify the tender regulations by informing the interested parties and, at the same time, they inform UNAR of the matter by expressly requesting that the Office decides on this matter. The opinion of UNAR  is that the specification can be considered discriminatory, urging Poste Italiane to comply with the principles of anti-discrimination.
