Circoscrizione

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jump to: navigation, search

Circoscrizione (plural: circoscrizioni) can refer to two different administrative units of Italy. One is an electoral district approximating to the English "constituency" but typically the size of a province or region depending on the election. The other is a subdivision of city comuni roughly equivalent to the municipal arrondissements of Paris or the London boroughs.

Electoral district

For Senate elections, there are 20 circoscrizioni corresponding to the regions of Italy.

For elections to the Chamber of Deputies, some of the regions are split in two to make 26 circoscrizioni.

For elections to the European Parliament, Italy is split into 5 circoscrizioni, typically of 4-5 regions joined together.

Until the electoral reforms in 2005, circoscrizioni for national elections were divided into collegi uninominali which elected one deputy or Senator and thus were directly equivalent to a constituency in the British sense.

Municipal district

District councils started to appear in the 1960s, but municipal circoscrizioni were formally recognised in law in 1976, and their powers extended in 1990. In 2000 they became compulsory in cities with populations of more than 250,000, and optional in cities of more than 100,000 people, under a law to encourage decentralisation in the big cities. Each circoscrizione now had to have at least 30,000 residents, and typically corresponded to historic divisions of a city, but could contain multiple frazioni, località or quartieri.

The comune delegates functions to the circoscrizioni. These vary from city to city, but may include schools, social services and waste collection.

Lettris

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.

boggle

Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
