Published “W LE REGIONI?”, The new report on the Qualitative Rating

libro_cover-355x177

The new Fondazione Etica Report evaluates and compares the economic-financial data and the qualitative information on Italian Regions.
Published by Rubbettino, in collaboration with the Public Rating Agency and Luiss-GovLoc, it is introduced by the preface of the Editor of Corriere della Sera, Luciano Fontana.
The analysis was carried out according to the “Public Rating” evaluation model (or qualitative rating of public administrations), built on the basis of the indicators required by current regulations – and, in particular, by the transparency decree of 2013 and the anti-corruption law of 2012 – and the methodology of the Sustainability Indices Esg.
Among the many interesting results that emerged from the Report, what is striking is above all the confirmation of a clear distance, even today, between North and South. Unfortunately, this is not a common place: the Northern Regions are clearly more transparent and performing than those of the South. All the northern Regions, in fact, obtain a qualitative Rating above the sufficiency, even if some, like Piedmont and Liguria, do not go beyond the Satisfactory Rating class.
Specularly, the southern regions obtain a rating not only below the regional average, but insufficient. Three of them (Calabria, Basilicata and Puglia) descend dangerously into the critical area, characterized by Poor class ratings, while Molise, is not only last, but even slips into Fallible class, with scores of 19 out of 100.
On this detachment North South – which frankly we hoped, if not resolved, at least attenuated – the statutory differentiation in force between the Italian Regions appears to be not decisive.
Those with the best qualitative rating, in fact, were not the Autonomous Provinces of Trento and Bolzano (scores 68 and 67 respectively), nor Valle D’Aosta, but two Ordinary Regions such as Lombardy and Tuscany. And among the Southern Regions, Sardinia and Sicily do not perform much better than other Ordinary Southern Regions.
These are data on which to reflect before even sitting at the table of the State-Regions confrontation to decide on the so-called differentiated regionalism.
