Provinces of Italy

From Academic Kids

In Italy, the province (in Italian: provincia) is an administrative division of an intermediate level, between municipality (comune) and region (Regione).

A provincia is composed of many comuni (pl), and usually several province (pl) form a region, (with the exception of the region of Valle d'Aosta, which properly speaking has none, the administrative functions of a province being provided by the Regione: in loose speech, it has a single province).
For example Modena and Maranello are two comuni of the provincia of Modena, and Modena and Reggio Emilia are two province of the regione Emilia-Romagna.

As of 2004, there are 103 provinces of Italy. In 2005, 4 new provinces in Sardinia will be effective, and 3 further new provinces will be effective in 2009, thus bringing the total to 110 provinces. The list below highlights in bold the provincia which is the administrative capital of the relevant regione.

ISO 3166-2:IT lists the two-letter codes for the provinces.
