Chapter Summary

Italy?s regions are divided into two distinct groups: the regions with an ordinary statute and the regions with a special statute. Apart from the fundamental constitutional differences, the two classes of regions clearly differ also in their financing system. The general development of the revenues of the Autonomous Province of Bolzano/ Bozen, since the entering into force of the new financing system in 1989, steadily increased during the 1990s, while it has grown more quietly since 2000, coming to stagnate in 2005 and 2006. It should be pointed out that, within the Province of Bolzano, at least ten distinct public bodies, such as the municipalities, the public health authorities and the district administrations, are involved in activities with distinct budgets. Therefore, only a comprehensive analysis in the form of a ?consolidated regional public expenditures account? can provide complete information about the status of public finance in South Tyrol?s economic system.
