RegionsEdit

Italy is divided in 20 administrative regions. Some regions have a special statute and they are considered as a subclass of the most generic region [1]. The query for the list of the italian regions must includes the region of Italy (Q16110) and subclasses (only one indeed, autonomous region with special statute (Q1710033)).

#Italian regions
SELECT ?item ?itemLabel
WHERE 
{
  ?item wdt:P131 wd:Q38.                   # Administrative divisions of Italy
  ?item p:P31/ps:P31/wdt:P279* wd:Q16110 . # Regions (including subclasses for special statute regions)
  
  SERVICE wikibase:label { bd:serviceParam wikibase:language "[AUTO_LANGUAGE],en". }
}

Unioni Territoriali IntercomunaliEdit

The Q27961023 can be considered similar to provinces but are not administrative entities and they are used only for statistical purposes. They are a total of 18 and replaced 4 provinces from Friuli Venezia-Giulia since 2016:

#Italia: Unioni territoriali intercomunali
#defaultView:Tree
SELECT ?regione ?regioneLabel ?provincia ?provinciaLabel
WHERE 
{
  ?regione p:P31/ps:P31/wdt:P279* wd:Q16110 .    # Regions of Italia
  ?provincia wdt:P131 ?regione .                 # Administrative divisions in the region
  
  { ?provincia wdt:P31 wd:Q27961023 . }          # Unioni terriotriali
 
  SERVICE wikibase:label { bd:serviceParam wikibase:language "[AUTO_LANGUAGE],en". }
}

Moreover, the region of Val d'Aosta is sometimes referenced as province because of the its level of functionality.

ComuniEdit

Each region is divided in provinces and then in comuni. Both {Q|15089} and {Q|15110} have to be considered in order to have a complete set of administrative entities of second level. Since 1-Jan-2018 many comuni have been joined in a new entity, so wikidata items have been (or must be) updated. This comuni have been defined as instance of (P31) of abolished municipality in Italy (Q3685476).
