Comprehension Exercise: "Youth in Italy"

Video Synopsis: 
Ettore, a PHD candidate at the University of Texas introduces us to the theme of this Video:  "Youth in Italy"

Although Italy is the world's 8th largest economy, its unemployment rates are through the roof.  Young people in Italy are having a very hard time finding a job, which is forcing them to have to get out of their country; that said, some find good reasons to stay there.
