The article reflects on the acceleration of the process of pluralization of the Italian welfare system impressed by the crisis. Starting (conventionally) from 2008, on the empirical level, some organized forms of private funding to implement measures do not adequately covered by the State have increasingly spread out , while on the theoretical level has gained increasing centrality the principle of horizontal subsidiarity, albeit this has happened in different ways according to the country’s different social and cultural traditions. The hypothesis of the paper is that the principle of subsidiarity, which has historically constituted a specificity of the Italian welfare system, despite its different interpretations, can be identified even more in these recent years as a sort of "Italian way" to welfare reform. Throughout the paper this hypothesis is developed by trying to identify the conditions under which this path of reform can be accomplished.
