The metropolitan city (città metropolitana in Italian) is an administrative division of Italy, operative since 2015.

History[edit] The original 1990 law individuated as metropolitan cities the comuni of Turin, Milan, Venice, Genoa, Bologna, Florence, Rome, Bari, Naples and their respective hinterlands, reserving the autonomous regions the right to individuate metropolitan areas in their territory.[1] In 2009, amendments added Reggio Calabria

Italian Parliament
approved a law that establishes 10 metropolitan cities in Italy,[3] excluding the autonomous regions. The new metropolitan cities have been operative since 1 January 2015. Organisation[edit] The metropolitan city is composed by the municipalities (comuni) that before had been members of the same province. Each metropolitan city is headed by a metropolitan mayor (sindaco metropolitano) assisted by a legislative body, the Metropolitan council (consiglio metropolitano), and by a non-legislative assembly, the metropolitan conference (conferenza metropolitana). Members of the Metropolitan council are elected and chosen by mayors and city councillors of each municipality in the metropolitan city, the metropolitan mayor is the mayor of the provincial capital. The metropolitan conference is composed by the mayors of the municipalities closest to the capital.[4] The main functions devolved to the new metropolitan cities are:

local planning and zoning; provision of local police services; transport and city services regulation.
