The Mama’s Boys

My son. Emotional woman making face while having joyful mood

Unbelievable but true, eight out of ten Italians aged between twenty and thirty still live at home. The average age for moving out of the house is… thirty-six.

Many Italian “mammas” are taking care of their sons, well grow up men in their late thirties or even forties. They have great jobs and disposable income, but regardless, they seem to love being taken care of by their “mamma”.

There is even an Italian name for them: it is “mammoni”. Let’s pay a tribute to all “mama’s boys” out there, and their affectionate and loving mothers, of course.
