As for the healthcare bit I'm not sure it necessarily follows that the healthcare is always better on the mainland. I wonder if there's some sort of online community of people (including Italians) who suffer the same chronic illness that might be able to comment more specifically? Only I know someone who has a particular rare chronic illness and they have an international Facebook group, and in that group there was a thread about where to find specialists in Italy...

Also in Italy you pay for public treatment. Sometimes the cost of going to a private clinic might not be much greater than in the public.

Doesn't that depend on the treatment? I thought most was free unless it's specialist treatment?

You have to pay for diagnostic stuff. I recently paid €21 for an X-ray and €40 for an MRI. Also you pay for medicine. If you have a serious condition treatment is free.
