Lombardy Regional Government

Regional government deals with health care, education and general law abidance.

Regional government is the most important and influential after the national government based in Rome. Each region has an elected council - the executive committee (Giunta Regionale) - and an elected president.

The regional governments are responsible for de-centralising state legislation on major issues to ensure that resources and standards are equal across the region. The regional government has the jurisdiction to set laws within the state constitution.

The Consiglio Regionale della Lombardia is an advisory body of Regione Lombardia. It assists communication between the regional government and Lombardy citizens.

The Public Relations Office (Ufficio Relazioni con il Pubblico, URP) ensures the administrative and legislative workings of the government are transparent to the public. Representatives answer questions and inform the public about governmental services. URP offices are also found in Provincial government organisations.

Lombardy Communal Representation

Each commune (comune) is responsible for the local issues affecting the towns and surrounding villages. Communes (comuni) could be described as municipal districts.

A commune is usually made up of:

  • a principal town, the capoluogo, which almost always gives its name to the comune (often the Town Hall is referred to as the "comune")
  • a territorial subdivision called a frazione (abbreviated Fraz.)
  • a very small area called a località (abbreviated Loc.)

The Commune is run by an elected mayor and council. EU citizens may vote in local elections or stand as a candidate.
