According to the Court of Appeal of Milan, the condition of five years of residence established by the Lombardy Region for both parents to enjoy a financial bonus related to the number of children they have is not reasonable. According to the Court, once an administration decides to intervene in relation to a social need, it cannot introduce disproportionate residence requirements.
