Demographic evolution[edit]

Emigration[edit]

Since the end of World War II until the late 1960s, the town's population declined considerably due to emigration. The place of choice for many of these emigrants was the Canadian city of Montreal. Montreal even has its own Provvidenti Association.

Borgo della Musica[edit]

In 2006 Provvidenti was elected "Borgo della Musica" (Borgo Music) by a group of young music managers and artists that decided to create a special place for creativity in the artistic sector. Now the project is suspended.
