Bullying: How to defend yourself
Behaviour such as intimidation, threat, oppression, either physical or emotional, by a more powerful person (the bully), usually repeated over time, that intentionally targets a less powerful person (the victim).
Bullying involves both boys and girls and it usually takes place at school, but also on the streets and in public places. The Ministry of Education has set up the toll-free number 800669696 within the framework of the anti-bullying campaign "Deflate the bully" ("Smonta il bullo").
