  Regions of Italy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Regions of Italy were granted a degree of regional autonomy in the 1948 constitution, which states that the constitution's role is: to recognize, protect and promote local autonomy, to ensure that services at the State level are as decentralized as possible, and to adapt the principles and laws establishing autonomy and decentralization.
However, five regions (Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Sardinia, Sicily, Trentino-South Tyrol, and the Aosta Valley) have been granted a special status of autonomy to establish their own regional legislation on some specific local matters; based on cultural grounds, geographical location and on the presence of important ethnic minorities.
Regional autonomy (Federalism) has been made an issue in Italian politics in recent years, no doubt aided by the emergence of parties such as the Lega Nord.

 FOCUS on ITALY - Regions
Each Region has a statute governing its organs, their relations and means of functioning within the Region itself, while the general electoral system remains under State law.
The statutes of the Regions with special autonomy are approved with constitutional laws, while those of the Regions with ordinary autonomy are resolved by the individual Consigli Regionali and approved with parliamentary laws.
Regions with special autonomy are empowered for primary, secondary and effective legislation, while those with ordinary autonomy only for secondary and effective legislation.

The Regions of Italy were granted a degree of regional autonomy in the 1948 constitution, which states that the constitution's role is: to recoginize, protect and promote local autonomy, to ensure that services at the State level are as decentralized as possible, and to adapt the principles and laws establishing autonomy and decentralization.
The other 15 Regions were established by various laws in 1970 and they primarily serve to decentralize the State government machinery, and recent administrations have devolved further powers to the regions.

As I was researching "Rustico: Regional Italian Country Cooking" and "The Italian Grill" I visited every region of Italy, from the well-traveled country roads of the Chianti wine zone in Tuscany to the deserted peaks of Monte Pollino in Basilicata.

To suggest anything more than arbitrary links between the regional dishes of northern Italy--the braised beef and creamy risottos of Piedmont, the seafood and herb-inspired touches of Liguria, the pasta and pork delicacies of Emilia or the schnitzel and dumpling fare of Alto Adige, for instance--is little short of heresy.
The same could be said of the southern regions where, however, the flavors of the Mediterranean remain generally more intact than elsewhere.

The major regional division in Italy is between the prosperous, industrialized North Italy and the poor, rural South Italy and the islands of Sardinia and Sicily.
The origins of the problem of these regional differences goes back centuries but the differences were increased as a result of policy choices made at the time of the unification of Italy in the 1860's.
The North dominated the politics and economy of the new Italy and the industrializing north wanted protection from competition from outside Italy.

Abruzzi ranks 14th among the regions in size (10,749 square kilometres) and in population (1,250,000).
Growers favour the predominant Montepulciano and Trebbiano, source of their two regional DOCs, while growing some highly productive vines (the region has Italy's highest average yields) for table wine and table grapes and experimenting in a so far unconvincing way with outside varieties.
In higher inland areas, or from vineyards where growers have the habit of excessive yields, the wines tend to be lighter, often better suited to Cerasuolo, a sturdy, cherry-coloured rose'.
