An increasing number of international human rights institutions are recommending to their Member States the adoption of all necessary measures to eliminate early non necessary inter-ventions on intersex children and to protect their fundamental rights. With this contribution the authors aim to investigate the status of intersex people in Italy by examining the Italian medical and legal system. This analysis shows the ongoing invisibilisation and pathologisation of in-tersex people as they are still submitted to early non-life saving surgical and pharmacological treatments aimed to direct the minor towards the feminine or the masculine, which have often several irreversible effects on a physical and psychological level.
Keywords: intersex; children; rights; pathologisation; invisibilization; sex characteristics.
