What IS the Difference between the Carabinieri and the Polizia?!

On this episode of The Real Life in Italy we’re finally answering What IS the difference between the Carabinieri and Polizia?

A question I know many expats in Italy have probably asked themselves every once a awhile. Probably the more important question we've asked living in Italy is: no seriously, WHO DO I CALL?

Turns out it’s more complicated than a jurisdiction thing, but we’ll at least take a glance.

I know why you are really here though, you want to know: Team Carabinieri or Team Polizia (sure there’s team ACAB out there but if you HAD to pick?) Well listen in for my thoughts and be sure to share yours with me.

We’ll also be covering who you should call for emergencies in Italy, what all these other police are (Guardia di Finanza what?), and uhm, can someone tell me what’s with the guns?

Tune in to learn more about police in Italy, and a few things that might just make living in Italy as a foreigner a bit easier.
