Regions not quite what they seem
At some point we're going to have to deal with this: the various articles usually assume that the modern region is the same as the ancient Roman region. The error — that's what it is — is particularly important in the case of Lazio (not the same as the ancient Latium), Puglia (which should not be called Apulia, see current usage of English speakers who actually go there, travel agents, etc.; and Apulia in Antiquity was significantly different) and, the worst one, Calabria (which in Antiquity referred to a totally different area: to what is now southern Puglia: i.e., to the heel and not the toe).
I've already taken care of Umbria, q.v..
It would properly be best to have an article Regions of Roman Italy, with the 14 Augustan regions, and each of them would have their article, on the same pattern as the modern regions; the evolution of the regions and their names might best be treated in those articles.

Suggest linking to this page from either the main 'Italy' page or the 'Geography of Italy' page. The pages for most other major European countries have this type of reference.—Preceding unsigned comment added by Colobus (talk • contribs)
- Look at the first link in the Regions, provinces, and municipalities subsection of the Italy article. Mindmatrix 13:56, 30 October 2008 (UTC)
Sardinia gets additional resources from the Italian state in order to finance all services???
it's totally false, the italian state has got a debt of futher 6 billions euro towards Sardinia, italian state doesn't pay reparations from 16 years to sardinia for the taxes paid from sardinians, infact the italian goverment has begun to compensate sardinia. inform themselves about the question of the "vertenza delle entrate della regione sardegna"
the italian goverment are denying to sardinia also 11 billions of european funds from more than 1 year, contrary sicily instead hasn't problems of this kind (it has received immediately 4 billions euros from the italian goverment some months ago)

boiler plate map?
crazy question. can I get a simple map that shows the regions? lol
there's the one highlighting the autonomous regions. that's cool. I would like to see one with each region labeled & perhaps even with a wikilink to the respective articles. I'm thinkin this file can be used. love to help but I would need a little training first. thanks T-303 (talk) 21:41, 21 October 2013 (UTC)

Sardinia & Sicily
The provinces of Italy article tells that currently Sardinia has 8 provinces, not "-" as it is on the table. However, if someone tried to update already to the 2014 situation, the provinces article tells Sicily do not have any provinces either. There might be more differencies, and the province article might have wrong information, though it has source(s) for the changes. 188.8.131.52 (talk) 00:03, 24 October 2013 (UTC)
