Candidates born in all Italian regions are running for the Municipality of Rome and its fifteen Municipalities, with the exception of Valle d’Aosta alone. The southerners dominate, almost a thousand in all: the largest group is that of 340 Campania (110 for the Municipality, 230 for the Municipalities), followed by 216 Calabrians (62 for the Campidoglio and 154 for the Municipalities) and 183 from Puglia (40 and 143). So 126 Sicilians (37 and 89), 52 Lucanians (10 for the Campidoglio) and 16 from Molise. The Abruzzese are also particularly present: there are 97 between the Municipality and Municipalities. There are 40 Sardinians.
To carry out the mini-census, extrapolating the data, was the cultural association “Forche Caudine”, the historic club of Molise in Rome, which publishes the cards referring to all the regions on its website (www.forchecaudine.com).
For the other regions, 94 were born in Lombardy, 82 from Tuscany, 50 from Piedmont, 49 from Emilia-Romagna, 40 from Veneto, 39 from Marche, 39 from Umbria, 33 from Liguria and 22 from Friuli. Finally, four representing Trentino-Alto Adige.
For Emilia-Romagna, the most represented province is Bologna and the region stands out for an average of younger candidates from other regions.
The youngest candidate ever is Sofia Rebucci of Modena, 25, a candidate for the VIII Town Hall. The youngest Emilian competing for the Campidoglio is Margherita Cantelli of Bologna, 27, the Romagna is Letizia Mascia of Ravenna, 28. Even the youngest from Ravenna, Giorgio Vitali, 85, running for the first town hall.
Finally, compared to the previous administrative ones, those who were born abroad are clearly increasing: they are over three hundred, with the Romanians as the largest group. “A picture that reflects the social dynamics taking place in the capital and, ultimately, throughout Italy – comments Giampiero Castellotti, president of the cultural association.
