The inhabitants of the commune are known as Azzanais or Azzanaises.[1]

Geography[edit]

Azzana is located some 13 km north-east of Casaglione and 10 km north-west of Bocognano. Access to the commune is by road D4 from Salice in the west which passes through the centre of the commune and the village before continuing east to Rezza. The D125 goes south-west from the village to Lopigna. Apart from the village there is the hamlet of Vignamajo towards the south.

Demography[edit]

In 2010 the commune had 49 inhabitants. The evolution of the number of inhabitants is known from the population censuses conducted in the commune since 1793. From the 21st century, a census of communes with fewer than 10,000 inhabitants is held every five years, unlike larger communes that have a sample survey every year.[Note 1]

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ At the beginning of the 21st century, the methods of identification have been modified by Law No. 2002-276 of 27 February 2002, the so-called "law of local democracy" and in particular Title V "census operations" allows, after a transitional period running from 2004 to 2008, the annual publication of the legal population of the different French administrative districts. For communes with a population greater than 10,000 inhabitants, a sample survey is conducted annually, the entire territory of these communes is taken into account at the end of the period of five years. The first "legal population" after 1999 under this new law came into force in 1 January 2009 and was based on the census of 2006.
