Republica Federal de Europa Latina

Another alternative for the federalization of latin speaking Europe, this time it is a province-based division. The Provinces are grouped in States on this map, but the majority of the powers belong to the formers and theirs divisions. Actually each Province decides how to divide in its interior with sometimes the possibility to have also autonomous areas (for example Alto Adige or Alsace-Lorraine, or others). Modern day nations remains for purpose such as sports teams and similar. The central government has powers such as exterior policy and army. In these fields the Republic goes pretty well, in fact it is the heir of the UN seat from French side and it combines all the armies of Latin Europe countries, between which there are the French army (fifth in global ranking), the Italian army (eleventh) and the Spanish army (twenty-seventh); the federal army would have 7 aircraft carriers and around 700-750,000 active personnel. 


Una a(l)tra alternativa por la federalisation de l’area de lengues latines de Europa. Cesta veice la division se facet principalment en Provinces. Les Provinces sont regrupates en Estatis su cesta carta, però la majoritat de les poderis apartenen a les Provinces e a sues divisionis.

Nothing good for the Basques
This map shows a way I would reorganize the Basque Country:
The resulting division is composed by the French Department of Biscay in blue on the map (Département de Biscaye, je sais, on dit Golfe de Gascogne en français mais TANT PIS) and by the two Spanish provinces of Pamplona (green) and Bilbao (purple). The three capital cities of the three subdivisions, which are respectively Saint Sébastien (well, I guess the French will franchise the name), Pamplona and Bilbao, are colored with a darker shade of the said color.
To make these divisions I based on geographical borders: the thicker red line is the European continental divide; on one side there’s the basin of the Ebro River which ends in the Mediterranean Sea, on the other side there are the Atlantic Ocean’s rivers basins, part of these sub-borders are shown with red thiner lines. Many of the municipal boundaries don’t match exactly those red lines so minor changes should be made (just in the international border proximity) but I decided not to show them here.
The lighter shade of blue indicates the area once belonged to the Kingdom of Navarre on the northern side of Basque Mounts, for this, it can be called “Transmountain Navarre” while the rest could be called “Cismountain Navarre” (meaning respectively and literarily Navarre on the other side of the mountains and Navarre on this side of the mountains).
The lighter shade of green is what Bilbao gains, Bilbao absorbs entirely the Province of Vitoria, the Treviño enclave, the valley of Deva River and the municipality of Valle de Mena, this province also lose to the Province of Santander five municipalities to the west that you can see in light brown on the map, this last change together with the previous two are made to make both northeast and northwest Bilbao limits geographical.  
Thick yellow lines delimit the area where the Basque language is spoken by the majority of the people while thin yellow lines delimit the area where the Basque language is spoken by a plurality. 

I guess that now I owe you some explanations for the title, well, the Basque people is now even more divided than before and if that wasn’t enough their core is no more on the Spanish side but on the French one and France is one of the worst countries (and I’m being polite) in terms of linguistic minorities protection. So yes, the Basques are pretty f*cked now :XD:

Now now, as you can see I broke any linguistic, political, historical, traditional, cultural and any other type of border to only care for the geographic ones, I think that this is going to shock more than on person Nod 

PS: Yes, I just gave a huge amount of land to France, one can argue that the are better possible geographical borders between Spain and France but the point is that to the Northeast the Basque Country border lay on a hilly zone where it is hard to find well defined geographic elements, in the center and to the West on the other hand the territory is more mountainous so that geographical lines are more easy to find. 

2xPS: I would like to add this to this map but I don’t if I should modify that directly or update a new version, please vote below ;)
United Spain
In this map I reorganized Portugal with its particular administrative units patterns, to try making it matching some sort of Spanish criteria, plus I made some little changes here and there. My opinion is that the Iberian peninsula (or Spain) looks pretty nice organized in this way. 
I based my reorganization of Portugal mainly on merging modern municipalities to make provinces. All the new provinces take the name of the main city. From north to south we have:
- Braga
- Porto
- Vila Real 
- Viseu 
- Coimbra 
- Castello Branco 
- Lisboa (Province and Autonomous Community together)   
- Évora
- Beja 
- Faro 
The first 6 are part of the Autonomous Community of Northern Portugal, Lisboa is a self governed City/Community, while the last 3 provinces are part of the Alentejo and Algarve community .

The two Portuguese archipelagos which are also annexed, become two mono-provincial Autonomous Communities.
Departmentalized Italy (sketch)
Just a quick “what if Italy had French styled departments ?” Done while I’m working on other projects kind of involving it.

Scipia R-R-Eco 
Linguistic borders of Europe
In this map I show which sections of European countries international borders are linguistic (green) and aren’t (red). What it takes to an international border section to be a linguistic boundary is that all the languages spoken on the two side of it are not the same. That doesn’t mean thought that that given part of the border won’t be the border of any other languages spoken in the area, for example the border between Croatia and Slovenia is in every part of it the also the boundary between the Slovenian and the Croatian languages but part of it is colored in red because Italian speaking population live on the two sides in that section.

Corsican and Transalpine Territorial Collectivity
An alternate history project for a French-Italian bilingual autonomous french region.

To the top a map of the entire region, in the middle three insects reporting from left to right the territory of Valle Stretta/Vallée Étroite, Moncenisio/Mont Cenis and Monginevro/Mongenèvre, these areas are managed directly by the central government of Corsica and they are mostly inhabited. To the bottom the map of the Communes of the Autonomous Arrondissement of Roya and Bevera Valleys.

I’m not sure if the map was better with names or clear as it is now…
the world in 1900
previous background:…

In 1856, after losing the war against the Luso-British, the Bourbons have to face in South America the revolution that will definitely put an end to their reign, after getting the power the revolutionaries rename the South American Bourbon Kingdom, the Republic of Columbia. In the meantime, in North America, new countries make war over political issues, similarly to OTL American civil war. Five of them will emerge.

In Europe the year 1855 is the year of the Congress of Berlin, it will be a secret meeting between the major European countries but the United Kingdom won't be invited, the decision that will be taken concerns two main areas and will define a big part of the destiny of the entire Eastern Hemisphere for lots of years to come: 
- the first area are the Balkans, here the Habsburg consent to retain only the Hungarian speaking contiguous area plus the Kingdom of Croatia to keep an access to the sea, this move will allow their reign to stabilize around the Hungarian nation, thus they will rename the country Hungarian Empire, the rest will be partitioned between Germany (that unites under Prussia in this occasion), Poland, Yugoslavia (which is also formed in this occasion), Romania and Venice (that will form a Confederation with N. Italy and Naples).
- the second area is Africa, here the majority of European colonial countries consider that the UK has claimed an area much bigger than what they really controlled, in addition to that they all had interests in connecting their possessions so they agree to a new partition. Predictably the UK doesn't consent to that and the so called Great African War brakes out in 1859, just before that, Northern Italy and Venice decide to found a Confederation in which they keep their sovereignty but will put all their colonies under a joint administration of a parliament and a government which will also care for the army and the foreign policy, the Republic of Naples is also integrated in change for the re-annexation of Calabria and Sicily.
Attacked on almost all sides the British have to give up in 1864 after 5 years of war, they surrender to some conditions though, in fact they will gain Arabia and some other territories in a war against the Ottomans, fought with the help of Russia in 1865, after which this empire falls and is replaced by Turkey. In the meantime of the Great African War, Columbia takes the chance to start a reconquista war against the British in the south, to do this they make territorial concessions to Portuguese in the east and at the end they will recover Paraguay and southern Bolivia area from the UK. 

In 1869 Germany, UK and Italy invade extremely weakened China and in 1872 divide it in influence zones.
In 1888 the Pope in Rome is over-throned and a republic is instaurated, the Italian Confederation breaks in the revolution and mediates between the revolutionaries and the Pope, the latter will keep a little area in the City of Rome as an independent state the rest will join the Confederation as the Republic of Rome. 
Russia is also engaged in an expansive campaign through south, in 1862 they invade northern China, in 1864 they force Japan to hand over Northern Manchuria (Japan will later have some territories to the south, as compensation), following the war to the Ottomans in 1865 they get some more Armenian territories, after that they invade northern Persia, the problem with it is that UK also has growing interest in the middle-eastern country so new tensions grow. 

The Persian Question will be the only great question that threat global peace until decolonization era but since it will never blow (for some unofficial unwritten agreements encouraged by other Europeans, that let the two Empires sharing the influence over the country), the last 30 years of the 19th century plus the first decades of the 20th century will be known as Pax Europae (the European Peace). 
Reorganized Corsica
Corsica is an Ital…ehm…Cors…ehm…Fre…ehm…whatever-they-speak speaking island offshore Italian coasts, it is at the moment occupied by France. This map shows how the communes of the island can be merged and how they can be grouped in Italian-like provinces.

- orange: Province of Bastia
- red: Province of Ajaccio
- yellow: Province of Corte and Porto Vecchio

names of communes to come

Reorganized Ticino
Ticino is a canton in southern Switzerland, in the mind of Alemannic Swiss it comprises all of Italian speaking part of the country although this not in fact true because 4 Italophone valleys are part of the Canton of Grisons or Graubünden, to make life of German Swiss easier I gave 2 of these valleys to Ticino (kidding, the main reason was another). In the central map I have merged a number of communes and abolished circles, which is an old Swiss administrative division which resists only in Ticino (all the other cantons have already abolished it), colored with shades of different colors are the districts (the level between communes -or circles- and cantons in Swiss administrative model). To the left 4 different proposals for a partition of the Canton into Italian province-like areas, this is of course done under the point of view of reunification with Italy, but it can also be applied to today situation, in fact Swiss federal laws allows cantons to internally organise as they want (many cantons have already profited of it) so Ticino can eventually decide to substitute (fairly little) district with bigger (and more rational) provinces. In yellow is the Province of Bellinzona, in dark orange the Province of Lugano and in light brown the Province of Locarno.
The 4 provincial divisions have some pros and cons:
- first version: the most equilibrated under a population-surface relation point of view, the northernmost Valley of Leventina thought was given to the province of Locarno to which it has no direct links and it takes quiet a long way to reach the main city. 
- second version: the fairest under a geomorphological point of view but the Province of Locarno would be a little underpopulated and under-dimensioned. 
- third version: the most adapted to a cultural and linguistic point of view, it matches the traditional division of the Canton between Sopraceneri and Sottoceneri (respectively north and south of the Mount Ceneri), the Province of Bellinzona would be huge compared to Lugano thought.
- fourth version: the most equal under a pure surface point of view, even though the Province of Lugano would break linguistic, cultural and kind of geographic patterns and would be much more populated than the Province of Bellinzona. 


Il Ticino è un cantone nel sud della Svizzera (si vabbè questo lo sapete già ma non sapevo come cominciare), nella mente degli Alemannici è sinonimo di Svizzera Italiana anche se quest’ultima comprende anche le 4 valli del Grigioni Italiano che di solito loro ignorano :XD: Per rendere loro la vita più semplice ho quindi deciso di annettere due di queste al Ticino (il vero motivo è ovviamente un altro). La mappa centrale mostra tutte le fusioni e cambiamenti che ho apportato, ho abolito i circoli, una vecchia divisione Svizzera che resiste solo nel Ticino (tutti gli altri l’hanno abolita…si vede proprio che sono Italiani ;)). Ogni distretto (il tradizionale livello sotto il cantone) è colorato con sfumature diverse di uno stesso colore, a sinistra sono rappresentate 4 alternative per dividere il Ticino in province su modello Italiano, pensato certamente sotto un’ottica di una eventuale riunificazione, può in realtà essere applicato anche allo stato attuale visto che le leggi federali permettono ad ogni cantone di organizzarsi come vuole (molti cantoni hanno già preso iniziativa in questo senso), sostituendo gli (oggettivamente piccoli) distretti con più grandi (e più razionali) province. In giallo abbiamo la Provincia di Bellinzona, in ocra la Provincia di Lugano e in marrone chiaro la Provincia di Locarno.
Tutte e 4 le alternative hanno dei pro e dei contro: 
- prima versione: la più equilibrata correlando popolazione e superficie, la Leventina è però stata data alla provincia di Lugano con cui non ha nemmeno un collegamento stradale diretto e raggiungere il capoluogo richiede (relativamente) molta strada. 
- seconda versione: la più consona da un punto di vista geomorfologico, tuttavia la Provincia di Locarno sarebbe un pò sotto-dimensiona e sotto-popolata.
- terza versione: la più corrispondente a criteri linguistici e culturali, ricalca la divisione tradizionale tra Sopraceneri e Sottoceneri (rispettivamente i territori a nord e a sud del Monte Ceneri), la Provincia di Bellinzona sarebbe enorme.
- quarta versione: la più bilanciata per quanto riguarda le superfici (che sarebbero quasi uguali), la Provincia di Lugano però romperebbe criteri linguistici culturali e in qualche modo anche geografici e sarebbe molto più popolata di quella di Bellinzona. 
Europe Shared Regions
This deviation shows how my "shared regions" model can be apllied to Europe, a shared region consist of shared territories between two or more countries of EU (that can be also feaseble between extra-EU countries but things might get more complicated as for citizenship, customs and stuff like that). The idea is that areas in dark blue should be made "indipendent" by original nations, the new born states will have a government and a parliament, to make autonomous laws, but not a president (I'm basing on a parliamentary republic), this charge belongs to the heads of government of the other involved states, those which "share the region", so that a law, to be approved, must pass under the signature of both (or more) state's head of government who can protect their nation interests. Local governements also have to be aproved by both (or more) heads of government sharing the region, in addition to that, if they both agree, they can make a diktat which is a law that will be enforced unconditionally.
In other words, how to balkanize Europe in a fashion way :XD:

remake of: Shared Regions (political proposal)
P.s: only some region that came to my mind are displayed on this map, this system might be applied elsewhere there are good relations between bordering states.
La Regione dell'Adige
This is the picture of a map published by DeAgostini before WWI, it represents the ethnic distribution of Germans and Italians in the region roughly corresponding to today Trentino-Alto Adige. The map is guarded in BZ '18 '45 exhibition which is located in the Monumento alla Vittoria's hypogeum (Monument to the Victory in English), in Bolzano. The Monumento alla Vittoria was built by the regime to celebrate the victory in WWI and to show clearly to the population that Alto Adige had to italianise, the monument is still there and is extremely controversial for all the things that it represents.
This exhibition explains the history of the monument, of the city of Bolzano and of Alto Adige between 1918 and 1945 (although it also talks about the following querelle around the monument that is still on going, an interesting fact is that in 2002 the municipality decided to change the name of the Monument's square in Peace Square -Piazza della Pace in Italian- but then the population decided to revert it to Victory Square -Piazza della Vittoria in Italian- trough a referendum, clearly not a decision taken by the germanophone part of the city :XD:). I really recommend to visit this exhibition (it is free!) if you happen to be in Bolzano area, I was only upset for not having a lot of time to visit it.
An Elephant in Alto Adige
This is a picture I took in the Duomo of Bressanone's cloister. In one of the frescos that are painted there, there is this wired animal which is supposed to be the representation of the elephant that was gifted by John III of Portugal to Maximilian of Austria and that stayed in the town for 14 days in 1551 and 1552. The Elephant came from a Portuguese colony in India and had to go through a long journey to reach Vienna, passing from Bressanone as well.
Bressanone, Alto Adige
As it is clearly recognisable, it consist of a lovely Italian city
Afghanistan Rush (mappe senza fili)
This is my map for Arminius1871’s telephone map. In this game I had to make a map basing on Thumboy21’s map which was sent to me without any background description. I was the last so I didn’t have to pass it on to anyone.
Since the map that I received was depicting a balkanized US (and under ongoing further balkanisation) I decided that this happened because Russia sorted out as a stable power from XIX and first half of XX century or anyway that Russia actually resulted in more stability thanks to a non-existing USA (although this would probably mean that it will more likely turn communist). 
Nevertheless, in this TL, since Russia is more powerful, it is able to attack Afghanistan provoking the UK to respond from the other side and to begin a rush to get as fast as possible to set the most profitable border line. In the meantime Persia occupies the western part of the country. Few shots are fired since the two main powers agree on parting the country on the ceasefire line and that Persia will control the eastern part. An internationally controlled strip flanking the border with India will be established in south-western Afghanistan and in south-eastern Persia, the purpose of it is to ensure a neutral area for Russia to build a safe road linking Central Asia to the Indian Ocean shores (Persia receives some lands in western Afghanistan also to compensate the minor loss in this area) 


Questa è la mia mappa per il telefono senza fili ideato da Arminius1871. In questo gioco bisogna scambiarsi delle mappe (al posto dei messaggi all’orecchio) senza che ci sia sotto nessuna descrizione, io ho ricevuto la mappa di Thumboy21 ma essendo l’ultimo non ho dovuto passare la mia mappa a nessuno. 
Dal momento che si trattava di una mappa degli Stati Uniti balcanizzati e ancora in via di balcanizzazione ho deciso che questo poteva essere successo solo grazie ad una Russia uscita forte e stabile dal XIX secolo e dalla prima metà del XX (il rapporto causa-effetto potrebbe essere anche invertito tuttavia, anche se questo implicherebbe probabilmente una Russia comunista, ancora più verosimilmente che nella ns LT). 
In ogni caso la Russia, essendo più sicura di sé, invade l’Afghanistan e fa informalmente partire una specie di corsa con l’Impero Britannico, che viene da sud, a chi raggiunge più terreno possibile prima di toccarsi. La Persia nel frattempo invade da ovest. Pochi colpi sono sparati tra le due potenze poiché si mettono quasi subito d’accordo sul far diventare la linea d’armistizio il confine internazionale. Inoltre si decide di lasciare alla Persia la parte invasa (più qualcosina in più) ma di creare nel sud-ovest dell’attuale Afghanistan e al confine fra Persia e India, una striscia di territorio internazionale dove la Russia potesse costruire una strada sicura per collegare l’Asia Centrale alle rive dell’Oceano Indiano.
Regions of My Country's Alternate Flags
In version one I noticed how bad regional flags of Italy actually looked like that’s. why I decided to try to change them even thought a little number of them (the best looking) were kept untouched or only slightly modified.

- Abruzzo [modified]: the CoAs of the
 Justiciarships of Abruzzo Citra and Abruzzo Ultra, the two administrative division of the Kingdom of Two Sicilies matching approximately modern territory of Abruzzo, were added on a background based on modern regional CoA. 
- Basilicata [modified]: 
A new CoA was added on a golden flag. The CoA depicts a castle, symbolizing some important castles in the region, topped by a smaller CoA with a Lucanian symbol, under that there are the waves of the Bradano river and even lower we can find the Pinus heldreichii, an endemic tree.
- Calabria [modified]: the modern CoA of Calabria was added on a vertical Aragonese flag, where original white was replaced with modern Calbrese flag's blue.
- Campania [modified]: the CoA of the Republic of Amalfi, where the original white was replaced by the blue from the CoA of Terra di Lavoro Justiciarship, was added on a background matching the colors belonging to the CoAs of the Justiciarship of Principato Ultra and Principato Citra (black, white, shared by the two, and red).
- Corsica [unmodified]
- Emilia-Romagna [modified]
- Friuli-Venezia Giulia/Julijska Kraijna [modified]: reported on a same CoA the single CoAs of Trieste, Friuli, Istria and Gorizia (in clockwise from upper left corner). The CoA was added on a background featuring former Istrian flag which has inside both the blue of Friuli and the red of Trieste.
- Lazio [modified]: the modern regional CoA was added on ancient flag of the State of the Church (which is namely the current flag of Rome).
- Liguria [modified]: Republic of Genoa's flag used. 
- Lombardia [modified] Sforza's Duchy of Milan's flag used.
- Marche, no, you don't need a new pair of glasses, it was really kept blank, I couldn't even find a single viable alternative to the modern flag (and that flag is probably one of the worst of all modern flags) comment 
- Molise [modified]: The CoA of the Justiciarship of Molise was added on a blue flag with a silver diagonal line from upper right corner to lower left corner, it was inspired by modern CoA.
- Piemonte [slightly modified]: the gold frame was removed and blue was darkened.
- Puglia [slightly modified]: removed the write "Regione Puglia" from the top.
- Sardegna [unmodified]
- Sicily [unmodified]
- Ticino [unmodified]
- Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol (Alto Adige/South Tyrol) [modified]: modern regional CoA added on the former flag of the Kingdom of Austria.
- Tuscany [modified]: the upper half of the flag of Florence, with Florentine Fleur de Lys on white background was combine with the lower half of the flag of Pisa, where Pisan Cross was added on changed background with left half colored in black instead of normal red, the red quarter and black quarter, combined with the white part above make respectively the Flag of Lucca and the Flag of Siena, thus representing all of the major Tuscan pre-unitary states. A pegasus from modern CoA was added in the center of the flag.
- Umbria [modified]: modern regional CoA was added on the flag of the State of the Church.
- Valle d'Aosta/Val d'Aoste (Aosta valley) [unmodified]
- Veneto [unmodified]


La visione di insieme della versione uno mi ha fatto notare quanto appaiano sgradevoli alcune bandiere delle regioni Italiane, così ho deciso di modificarne una parte. Alcune sono rimaste inalterate o solo leggermente modificate poiché secondo me già apposto come sono adesso.

- Abruzzo [modificata]: blasoni dei Giustizierati di Abruzzo Citra e Abruzzo Ultra, divisioni amministrative corrispondenti all'incirca al territorio Abruzzese moderno, posti in campo ispirato all'attuale stemma regionale.
- Basilicata [modificata]: 
Un nuovo stemma è aggiunto in campo oro. Lo stemma raffigura un castello, che simboleggia alcuni importanti castelli nella regione, sovrastato da uno stemma più piccolo contenente un simbolo Lucano. Sotto le onde del Fiume Bradano e ancora più in basso un Pino loratico.
- Calabria [modificata]: attuale stemma regionale in campo composto da una bandiera Aragonese con la sostituzione in quest'ultima del bianco con il blu che si può trovare nel gonfalone Calabrese odierno.
Campania [modificata]: stemma della Repubblica di Amalfi, dove il bianco originale è sostituito con il blu del blasone del Giustizierato di Terra di Lavoro, in campo composto da una combinazione dei colori dei blasoni dei Giustizierati del Principato Ultra e del Principato Citra (nero, bianco, condiviso da entrambi, e rosso).
- Corsica [inalterata]
- Emilia-Romagna [modificata]:
- Friuli-Venezia Giulia/Julijska Kraijna [modificata]: riportati sullo stesso stemma i blasoni di Trieste, Friuli, Gorizia e Istria (in senso orario dall'angolo in alto a sinistra). Lo stemma si trova in campo composto dalla formale bandiera Istriana che comprende sia il blu del Friuli che il rosso di Trieste.
- Lazio [modificata]: moderno stemma regionale in campo composto dalla antica bandiera dello Stato Pontificio (attuale bandiera di Roma).
- Liguria [modificata]: bandiera della Repubblica di Genova.
- Lombardia [modificata]: bandiera del Ducato di Milano sotto gli Sforza.
- Marche, no, non avete bisogno di un nuovo paio di occhiali, ho davvero lasciato le Marche in bianco, non sono riuscito a trovare una singola alternativa viabile alla bandiera moderna (che è forse una delle più brutte d'Italia anche attualmente)...lasciamo perdere vai :XD:
- Molise [modificata]: stemma del Giustizierato del Molise in campo composto da una bandiera blu (odierna) con una striscia diagonale argentea che la taglia dall'angolo in alto a destra a quello in basso a sinistra, ispirata al blasone attuale.
- Piemonte [leggermente modificata]: rimossa la cornice aurea e scurita la tonalità di blu.
- Puglia [leggermente modificata]: rimossa la scritta "Regione Puglia".
- Sardegna [inalterata]
- Sicilia [inalterata]
- Ticino [inalterata]
- Toscana [modificata]: metà superiore occupata dalla bandiera della Repubblica di Firenze, con il giglio fiorentino in campo bianco, metà inferiore occupata invece dalla Croce Pisana in campo composto dalla metà destra in nero e dalla metà sinistra nel tipico rosso che si trova nella bandiera Repubblica di Pisa. Questi due colori presi col sovrastante bianco formano rispettivamente le bandiere della Repubblica di Siena e della Repubblica di Lucca. Sono quindi rappresentati tutti i più importanti stati pre-uinitari toscani. Il Pegaso del attuale stemma toscano è stato aggiunto al centro.
- Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol [modificata]: moderno stemma regionale in campo composto dall'antica bandiera del Regno d'Austria 
- Umbria [modificata]: moderno stemma regionale in campo composto dalla bandiera dello Stato Pontificio.
- Valle d'Aosta/Val d'Aoste [inalterata]

edit: changed Basilicata after hanestetico’s suggestions
Alternate Flag of Basilicata
A new CoA of Basilicata was added on a golden flag. The CoA depicts a castle, symbolizing some important castles in the region, topped by a smaller CoA with a Lucanian symbol, under that there are the waves of the Bradano river and even lower we can find the Pinus heldreichii, an endemic tree.

Un nuovo stemma è aggiunto in campo oro. Lo stemma raffigura un castello, che simboleggia alcuni importanti castelli nella regione, sovrastato da uno stemma più piccolo contenente un simbolo Lucano. Sotto le onde del Fiume Bradano e ancora più in basso un Pino loratico.

grazie per i suoi suggerimenti a/thanks for his suggestions to: hanestetico

Autonomous Regions in Italy
Light green: ordinary status regions.
Dark green: autonomous regions.
Green: regions that are advocating for some autonomy. 
- Lombardy and Veneto: on October 22 a referendum was held in both these regions to ask the central government for more powers. This doesn’t include becoming an autonomous region, in fact the Italian Constitution provides that an ordinary status region can demand for more powers with no need to change the constitution. After the victory in the referendum the governor of Veneto proposed to make its region fully autonomous but that would require a long process to change the Constitution and there is not enough political consensus to do that.
- Emilia-Romagna: this region has begun the same process of Lombardy and Veneto but without holding a referendum.
- Corsica: the regionalist party ruling the island since 2015 (and reconfirmed by this week elections) has started negotiations that have only lead by now to a new administrative organisation (merging the two departments and the region together in a new “Territorial Collectivity”). That is clearly an insufficient result compared to what they are asking and the negotiations are being held with the wrong government, one that will never concede Corsicans anything of the main things they want. I’m talking about the French government of course. :P Instead, they should address to the Italian government which already has the instruments to give them the advanced powers they are looking for (like those of Alto Adige for example).

Verde chiaro: regioni a statuto ordinario
Verde scuro: regioni a statuto speciale 
Verde: regioni in cerca di poteri speciali.
- Lombardia e Veneto: il 22 Ottobre è stato tenuto un referendum per chiedere più poteri alle due regioni attraverso l’approvazione di una legge ordinaria dal parlamento nazionale, possibilità prevista dalla Costituzione. Questo non significa lo status di regione a statuto speciale (richiesto dal governatore del Veneto a seguito della vittoria), per quello infatti servirebbe una modifica costituzionale, un processo lungo e, attualmente, senza abbastanza supporto politico.
- Emilia-Romagna: questa regione ha cominciato lo stesso processo di Lombardia e Veneto senza tenere prima un referendum. 
- Corsica: il partito regionalista al potere (riconfermato dalle elezioni di questa settimana) sta negoziando, dalla sua elezione nel 2015, uno statuto di piena autonomia, per ora hanno ottenuto un cambio di assetto amministrativo (con la fusione di dipartimenti e regione in una sola “Collettività Territoriale”) chiaramente insufficiente rispetto a quello che chiedono. Inoltre i negoziati stanno avvenendo con il governo sbagliato, uno che non concederà mai ai corsi ciò che vogliono realmente, sto parlando del governo francese ovviamente. :P Al contrario loro dovrebbero rivolgersi al governo italiano che ha già i mezzi necessari per concedergli i poteri avanzati che cercano (come quelli dell’Alto Adige per esempio).
