Bologna is the area with the biggest number of cases of women helped and hosted for abusing reasons. In the lasts years there is also an increment of foreign women that report violence episodes: italian women have family and friend here, but they have not, therefore they suffer more serious violences.

The foreign women who have been helped, come mostly from Est Europe; the elevated presence of women with children that need help shows that is necessary create support activities for this children that may have suffered of violence.
In most cases the abuser are partner or ex partner, so the victims and their children need the help of different local institutions like social services, police, courthouses etc...
