15 Jan Milan, the city where you live the best in Italy
For the second consecutive year, Milan wins the 1st place in the ranking of the Italian provinces for quality of life drawn up by the Sole 24 Ore. Bolzano and Trento are in 2nd and 3rd place respectively. Last one on the list in 107th place is Caltanissetta.
For the 30th edition of its annual ranking, the newspaper used 90 indicators (from average income to the availability of public transport) grouped into six macro-areas: «Wealth and consumption», «Business and work», «Environment and services», “Demography and society“, “Justice and security“, “Culture and leisure“.
Milan scored 1st place thanks to its population growth – with its constant increase in residents from 2012 to today – and for its wide cultural offer, the suburb development plans, the work/money creating enterprises and the connotation of being an increasingly smart and green city. The Lombard capital conquers the podium in the “Business and work” (1st), “Wealth and consumption” (2nd), “Culture and leisure” (3rd) macro-areas. Its weak point is security (107th), due to the high number of reported crimes and the level of aggressiveness.
Compared to 2018, the quality of life in Rome has slightly risen, from 21st to 18th place. Naples climbs 13 positions, despite being 81st. Among the big cities, Verona, Venice, Parma, Cagliari, Genoa, Florence and Bari also improve, while Bologna loses 7 positions and goes from the 7th to the 14th.
