Italy is divided into 5 historical-administrative regions. This is the category, which precedes the name of the country on the pedigree (see the example below).
North Eastern Italy
- Friuli-Venezia Giulia
- Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol
North Western Italy
- Aosta Valley
Example how to include an information about an Italian place of origin on the pedigree:
Coassolo Torinese, Turin, Piedmont, Italy (English version)
Italian version: Coassolo Torinese, Torino, Piemonte, Italia
NOTE: Use always the most recent name of the place of origin and its contemporary administrative affiliation. The old names can be included in notes.
