In Italy, a province (provincia) is an administrative division of intermediate level between a municipality (comune) and a region (regione).

On 3 April 2014 the Italian Chamber of Deputies gave its final approval to the Law n.56/2014 which involves the transformation of the Italian provinces into "institutional bodies of second level" and the birth of 10 special Metropolitan cities.<ref>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=web }}</ref> The reorganization of the Italian provinces will be operative by January 2015.

The new law which transforms the provinces is preliminary to their abolition, as a revision of the second part of the Italian Constitution is needed in order to change the current bicameral parliamentary system and to abolish.<ref>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=web }}</ref>
