Piedmont, Lazio and Molise are also among the most efficient. Sicily is bad
Calabria and Lombardy are the most ‘virtuous’ Italian regions in spending on stationery, paper and printed matter. Two Regions that win the overall AAA rating in the special classification, drawn up for Adnkronos by the Administrative Journal Foundation of the Italian Republic, as part of the ‘Pythagoras’ project, which examines the costs incurred in 2021 by Regions (TABLE) and provincial capitals (TABLE). In particular, for this cost item, in 2021 Calabria spent 17,575.08 euros and Lombardy 69,521.61 (TABLE).
To be ‘promoted’ for this type of expenditure, with an overall rating from A to AA (TABLE), are also Molise, Piedmont and Emilia-Romagna which, with an amount respectively of 4,599.12, 68,934.82 and 88,545.27 euros, are awarded the double AA (TABLE), and then, with the single A, Tuscany (94,594.76), and Lazio (139,599.38).
