Our data in the Corriere della Sera “27 Municipalities to vote”
How did the 27 municipalities that were called to the polls on Sunday spend their citizens’ money? The analysis was conducted by Fondazione Etica, created by Paola Caporossi, which evaluated financial and even qualitative indicators to draw up a public rating. In the economic-financial macro-area at the top of the list is Cesena, followed by Sassari and Pesaro. Last in the ranking Lecce, with 37 points out of 100. Below the average also Florence.
Among the financial variables, the Public Rating analyzed eleven indicators for 2017. The municipalities of the central-north have achieved better results than those of the south even if there are exceptions in the geography of administrative efficiency. At the top end of the rankings, Foggia is in seventh place behind Ferrara, while Bari is in tenth place ahead of Modena (for one point). Cesena, leading everyone with a score of 88 out of 100, is approaching the Rating Execellent class. “The city, which obtains the maximum score in nine indicators on the eleven analyzed – the study explains – presents a financial framework with many strengths: no financial deficit or recourse to cash advances; high financial autonomy, spending capacity and collection capacity; limited rigidity of expenditure and satisfactory level of planned investments “. Queued before Lecce there are Avellino, Perugia and Vercelli due to cash advances, limited spending capacity and high debt.
