Assessor (italy)
In Italy
Italy
an assessor (in Italian language: assessore) is a member of a Giunta, the executive body in all levels of local government: regions, provinces and communes. Assessors are appointed by the chief executive of local government, who chairs the Giunta--the mayor of a commune, the president of a province or region. They serve until the chief executive ends his term or resigns, if he doesn't dismiss them. In communes with 15,000 residents or more and in provinces, assessors cannot be members of Consiglio (council), the local legislative body: if a member of council is appointed as assessor, he must resign from council. The mayor or president usually assigns to each assessor responsibility for a specific aspect of municipal, provincial or regional affairs and the supervision of corresponding branch of local government, called assessorato (department)

Pollentia
Pollentia, known today as Pollenzo, was an ancient city on the left bank of the Tanaro. It is now a frazione (parish) of Bra in the Province of Cuneo, Piedmont, northern Italy. During the Antiquity Pollentia belonged to the Ligurian Statielli, Augusta Bagiennorum (modern Roncaglia in the Comune of Bene Vagienna) being 16 km to the south. Its position on the road from Augusta Taurinorum (modern Turin) to the coast at Vada Sabatia (modern Vado Ligure, near Savona), at the point of divergence of a road to Hasta (modern Asti) gave it military importance. Decimus Brutus managed to occupy it an hour before Mark Antony in 43 BC. Here Stilicho on April 6, 402, fought the Battle of Pollentia with Alaric I, which though undecided led the Goths to evacuate Italy. The place was famous for its brown wool and pottery
