Keywords: Pandemic crisis, Italian income protection system, reform, inequalities, universalism.

This article analyses the reaction of the Italian income protection schemes in the midst of the pandemic crisis highlighting strengths and weaknesses and providing a comparison with three major European countries (i.e. France, Germany and Spain). Against this background, the article illustrates and critically discusses a recent reform proposal (i.e. the proposal stemming from the «Commissione Catalfo») aiming at extending magnitude and scope of the Italian income protection system towards a «differentiated universalism».
