Florence is divided into 5 districts. Each one of these districts has a certain level of independence and manages its own local services, depending on the program of the central Local Government in Florence. The districts are in charge of their own public works such as maintenance work on buildings, dealing with uninhabited buildings, locally run social services and the local education service. They do all this in accordance with regulations set by Florence’s central Local Government.

Government bodies and how they are elected

  • District Council (Consiglio di Quartiere): this local body decides how to organize itself and how to operate. The District Council is elected by citizens at the same time as the elections for the Local Government.
  • President of the District Council (Presidente del Consiglio di Quartiere): is elected by the District Council.
  • Board of the Presidency (Collegio di Presidenza): this is an executive body made up of the President, Vice President and permanent Presidents of the Commission.
