Italy Administration


Italy is divided into 20 regions, which are subdivided into a total of 94 provinces. Each region is governed by an executive responsible to a popularly elected council. The regional governments have considerable authority.
The chief executive of each of the provinces, the prefect, is appointed by, and answerable to, the central government and in fact has little power.

An elected council and a provincial executive committee administer each province. Every part of Italy forms a portion of a commune, the basic unit of local government, which may range in size from a small village to a large city such as Naples; there were more than 8000 communes in the early 1990s.
Each commune is governed by a communal council elected for a four-year term by universal suffrage. A mayor is elected by each council.
