In order to get a Blue Card, the applicant must:

As this minimum salary is often based on the average salary of the country, I wonder if the famous Italian North/South Divide may be the cause of a lack of minimum salary. The south's GDP is roughly half that of the north and listing an "average salary" for Blue Card workers could be a very delicate matter.
