Quality of life in Italy, Parma in first place

Revolution on the podium of the annual ranking of quality of life in the Italian provinces, compiled by Italia Oggi and La Sapienza University of Rome, in collaboration with Cattolica Assicurazioni. After years of relays between Pordenone and Trento, this year ninth and second respectively, it is the province of Parma that conquers the top (in the last edition in 39th place): together with the big cities of the North it climbs the ranking of the quality of life 2021. Closing the ranking of the Report on the Quality of Life in Italy 2021, now in its 23rd edition, is Crotone, which slips one position compared to last year.

In addition to that of Parma, the climbs of Bolzano (from eighth to third position), Bologna (it was 27th is now fourth) and Milan, which gains forty positions (from 45th to fifth), as well as Trieste (in seventh place) are also surprising. from 40th). Not least the leap that Florence made: from 31st to sixth. The primacy of the province of Parma derives from the placement in group 1, the one characterized by the highest values, in 4 dimensions out of the nine examined in the survey. But not only. Parma belongs to the grouping of urban areas in the north-central which has shown an excellent capacity to react to the pandemic.

Going down to the bottom, however, fewer surprises: above Crotone there are Naples (it was in 103rd place), Foggia, which climbs up two positions, and Syracuse, stable. The biggest drop is Taranto (from 94th to 103rd). Among the provinces that are losing more positions are Como, L’aquila, Belluno, Udine, Varese, Rovigo, Prato, Benevento, Fermo, Rieti and Nuoro.

“The reason for this upheaval is twofold – explains the co-director of Italia Oggi Marino Longoni in an editorial on the issue on newsstands tomorrow -: on the one hand, the metropolises have shown that they know how to better deal with the Covid-19 pandemic, so much so that, despite being were penalized by this emergency in 2020, in 2021 they were able to recover more quickly, demonstrating a more pronounced resilience than that of smaller centers ยป.

The second reason is methodological – explains Longoni: in fact, it was realized that the ranking of previous years ended up overweighting an indicator, that of the population and it was therefore decided to resize it: probably this too has contributed to improving the position of the large centers with respect to to the little ones “.

The distance between the provinces of the North and those of the South is accentuated: among the realities of the Center-South only Perugia, Macerata, Ascoli Piceno, Ancona, Terni, Grosseto and Fermo are in the first half of the ranking, while only ten provinces in the North are in the lower half: Vercelli, Rovigo, Prato, Rimini, Como, Asti, La Spezia, Imperia, Pistoia and Alessandria.

Rome, on the other hand, is the only one among the big cities to be out of group one (those of the best) and not to gain positions, actually losing four (it goes from 50 to 54th place).

In the top ten of the ranking of Italy Today, behind Parma, Trento is confirmed in second place followed by Bolzano, Bologna, Milan, Florence, Trieste, Verona, Pordenone and Monza. The nine dimensions examined in the study are business and work, environment, education and training, income and wealth, leisure, social security, demographics, health system, crime and safety.
