Confusing income tax system in Italy

Hi Everyone!

I have a pretty basic question about the income tax or capital gains tax in Italy. I've been trying to figure it out online but there are some rules that seem very weird, I'm hoping someone can shed some light on this.

Most countries have a tax free bracket, for example in France, the first 9000Euro is tax free and you start paying taxes on amounts above that. In Italy it seems like there is no tax free bracket and that you pay 23% starting with ANY income. Is this correct?

Thank you!
