Abstract: This paper provides an exploratory analysis of the patterns of sub-national mobility of Italian graduates. Whilst the majority of studies have treated Italian movers as a homogenous group, this paper explores the distinction between return-migrants, who go from the region of graduation back to the home region, and onward-migrants, who move from the area of study to a region that is not the home region. After defining them and describing their spatial distribution, the paper compares their behaviour and personal characteristics, thereby contributing to an understanding of how knowledge transfers, through graduate mobility, from the universities to the labour market and across space.
