(ANSA) - ROME, APR 1 - Almost one in four Romans is suffering economic malaise, Catholic charity Caritas said Friday.
    Some 23.6% of people living in Rome are in a state of "economic malaise", said the charity, which does a lot of work with the poor.
    Further, some 10.3% are in "grave material deprivation", it said.
    Some 14.1% is at risk of falling into poverty.
    Another 6% struggled to make it to the end of the month, Caritas said.
    Just 2.4% of Roman citizens have an income above 100,000 euros and account for 18% of total income, marking a huge gap with the rest of the population.
    Four out of 10 Romans have an income below 15,000 euros.
    The over-60s are the richest age bracket, Caritas said in its report on poverty in the Italian capital.

    Further, some 45% of the city's population lives alone. (ANSA).
