Where you live best in Italy
Vita gazette – According to the annual ranking of the Sole 24 Ore, the most livable province in 2021 is Trieste, followed by Milan and Trento. The capital Rome, on the other hand, took 13th place in the ranking.
As has been the case at the end of every year since 1990, also this December Il Sole 24 Ore published a ranking of the Italian provinces on the basis of the quality of life, which takes into account various parameters, including work, environment, health, safety and culture. As had already happened to create the 2020 ranking, the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the well-being of the population was also analyzed for this year: with some interesting consequences on the position of the provinces considered more liveable.
The goal of the Sole 24 Ore survey is to measure various aspects of well-being in the various areas of Italy starting from certified indicators relating to the previous 12 months and provided by official sources, including institutions and research institutes. Based on this year’s analysis, the most livable Italian province in 2021 is Trieste, followed by Milan and Trento, third also in 2020.
A total of 90 indicators were used to fine-tune the ranking, divided equally into 6 macro categories: “wealth and consumption”, “business and work”, “environment and services”, “demography and health”, “justice and safety” and “Culture and free time”. Trieste ranked first in this last category, second in “business and work” and fourth in “environment and services”, confirming its progressive improvement in the ranking of well-being in recent years (in 2020 it had finished fifth).
Bolzano Bologna Pordenone
The province of Milan, on the other hand, has recovered ten positions compared to last year, when it had dropped from the first to the 12th position also due to the average living space available to each family, a parameter that was inserted in 2020 to evaluate the long time that the Italians had had to pass into the house following the pandemic. In 2021 Milan was ranked first for “wealth and consumption” and “business and work”, coming ahead of the other provinces in particular for the average annual salary, for the incidence of companies that do e-commerce and for the diffusion of services online banking, specifies the Sun.
Verona Udine Treviso
Bologna has lost some positions in the ranking this year, but nevertheless came first in the “demography, society and health” indicator thanks to the high levels of education of the population. Treviso, one of the seven provinces of the north-east among the top ten in the rankings, then entered the top ten thanks to the primacy in the “quality of life of women” indicator, introduced for the first time this year to evaluate attention to gender issues and the well-being of small towns in the recovery after the pandemic.
