How much do Italian cities spend on road infrastructure? To calculate it, a report created for Adnkronos by the Administrative Gazette of the Italian Republic Foundation, which, as part of the ‘Pitagora’ project, has drawn up a ranking of the costs incurred in 2020 by the provincial capitals (for this item of expenditure, no under consideration the data of the Regions as in this case not comparable) for the maintenance of their offices and their structures, complete with rating assignments (HERE THE PDF). The Research Center of the Foundation, in fact, analyzes all the official financial data of the public body in question and through scientific research algorithms identifies potential waste, or critical expenses in public accounts. The expenses of the institution in relation to the individual items are compared with the reference benchmark and, depending on the levels of expenditure variance identified, we speak of ‘positive performance’ (when expenditure is less than or equal to the average), slight ‘(when the expenditure is between the average expenditure and 30% more),’ considerable deviation ‘(when the expenditure is between the slight deviation and 100% more),’ expenditure out of control ‘(when the expenditure exceeds the average expenditure by more than 100%). The rating – which is based exclusively on objective accounting data free from any discretionary evaluation – assigns the triple ‘A’ to the best performance, while the letter ‘C’ is attributed to the worst performance. Record road infrastructure expenditure in Rome, 73,898,671 euros in 2020 Rome is the provincial capital which, in absolute values, has the highest expenditure on road infrastructure, reaching the record figure of 73,898,671.59 euros in 2020. Second and third place in the standings go, respectively, to Turin with 64,062,960.59 euros and Milan with 50,641,056.78 euros. Followed, with spending between 20 and 40 million, Venice (36,108,672.88), Genoa (30,961,175.86), and Naples (24,232,958.79), and between 10 and 20 million: Verona (19,452 .080.33), Bologna (19,256,890.57), Rimini (18,869,440.83), Florence (14,621,774.26), Bolzano (13,386,064.30), Bari (10,721,907.98) Imperia, a city with the lowest road infrastructure expenditure, 6,769 euros in 2020 Imperia is the most ‘thrifty’ provincial capital in terms of road infrastructure costs, an item to which it allocated only 6,769.18 euros in 2020. It is clear from the special ranking prepared for Adnkronos by the Administrative Gazette of the Italian Republic, as part of the ‘Pitagora’ project, which examines the costs incurred in 2020 by Regions and provincial capitals (on the website www.adnkronos.com all the tables and figures of the report). To keep the expenditure for this item low, below 100,000 euros, followed by Andria with 52,187.56 euros and Trani with 99,720.57 euros. Following, we find, with an expense between 100 thousand and 300 thousand euros: Catania (129,478.21), Vibo Valentia (151,344.04), Catanzaro (184,016.81), Novara (261,079.31), Carbonia (298,449.84) . Again, with an expense between 300 thousand and 500 thousand euros, there are: Latina (308,720.06), Frosinone (318,666.32), Barletta (335,584.75), L’Aquila (345,107.66), Vercelli (400,372.62), Chieti (407,256.75), Nuoro (423,632.32), Caltanissetta (423,673.84), Viterbo (440,674.82), Lodi (484,108.41). 15 capitals promoted with AAA for spending on road infrastructures Fifteen Italian provincial capitals ‘promoted’ with the triple AAA in the management of road infrastructure costs (HERE THE PDF). To be more ‘virtuous’ for this cost item of the institution, thus obtaining the highest rating, are Imperia, which spent only 6,769.18 euros, and then Andria with 52,187.56, Trani with 99,720.57, Catania with 129,478 , 21, Vibo Valentia with 151,344.04, Catanzaro with 184,016.81, Novara with 261,079.31, Latina with 308,720.06, Frosinone with 318,666.32, Barletta with 335,584.75, L’Aquila with 345,107.66, Caltanissetta with 423,673.84, Viterbo with 440,674.82, Palermo with 1,110,910.77, Livorno with 1,354,960.75 Other 26 capitals are also among the most virtuous for this item of expenditure, obtaining the double AA (HERE THE PDF) : Chieti, Foggia, Syracuse, Vercelli, Terni, Ancona, Taranto, Crotone, Potenza, Carbonia, Massa, Lodi, Asti, Perugia, Pistoia, Nuoro, Pavia, Lucca, Salerno, Benevento, Alessandria, Trapani, Messina, Modena, Sassari , Reggio Calabria. While there are 19 who win the A (HERE THE PDF): Savona, Rieti, Siena, Naples, Parma, Rome, Agrigento, Reggio Emilia, Vicenza, Pesaro, Ragusa, Varese, Cagliari, Bari, Prato, Ascoli Piceno, Rovigo , Cuneo, Como To Pordenone Pisa Rimini Sondrio Campobasso Oristano Venice Bolzano ‘C’ in street shopping Pordenone, Pisa, Rimini, Sondrio, Campobasso, Oristano, Venice, Bolzano are the provincial capitals less ‘efficient’ in terms of road infrastructure costs. Enough to deserve the C rating (HERE THE PDF), the lowest in the special ranking prepared for Adnkronos by the Administrative Gazette of the Italian Republic. But how much are the expenses incurred for this item in these institutions in 2020? Analyzing the ranking, it turns out that Venice spent 36,108,672.88 euros, Rimini 18,869,440.83, Bolzano 13,386,064.30, Pisa 8,019,549.05, Campobasso 4,766,231.29, Pordenone 4,309,401, 99, Oristano 3,051,178.45, Sondrio 2,053,958.09. They obtain an intermediate rating in the ranking: Cremona, Turin, Udine, Gorizia, Verona, Pescara, Matera, Urbino, Macerata, Verbania, Arezzo, Mantua, Avellino, to which the B goes (HERE THE PDF); Bologna, Brindisi, Belluno, Genoa, Forlì, Monza, Trento, Aosta, Treviso, Cesena, Lecce, with the BB (HERE THE PDF); Ferrara, Biella, Milan, Brescia, Florence, Caserta, Padua, Lecco, Ravenna, Piacenza, Fermo, Teramo, Grosseto, Bergamo, Trieste, Enna, La Spezia, who receive the BBB (HERE THE PDF). The data of Cosenza and Isernia are not comparable (HERE THE PDF).
