Is it hard to get an ID job in Italy? Does anyone know?
That’s a bit of an open-ended question - depends how hard you try/how good you are/where you locate yourself (Milan is the most densely design company populated place, followed by Rome, I’d say)/what area you’d be happy to work in (there’s a lot of furniture design)…
My one piece of advice would be that it’s easier to get a job when you’re actually there. You can phone/contact companies and go and show them your portfolio easily. You can also make contacts and learn Italian too! There are loads of companies in Milan (look in Pagine Gialle or on coroflot), so you can really blitz the area and visit a lot in a short amount of time. However, it’s mainly furniture, from what I could see. Amazing place - Italy is beautiful per se, and Milan is much nicer than people would lead you to think. As a tourist destination there are a wealth of places to visit in Italy, but to live in, Milan is pretty cosmopolitan, great for the Salone, brilliantly located for travelling Europe and good fun for young professionals.
If you have any specific queries I’d be happy to answer them on here.
