The aim of this paper is the analysis of economic-social-environmental factors of Italian provinces development. The focus is on Local Public Administration (LPA). We propose a model to describe the Territorial Socio-Economic Systems (TSES). We take the ESE model (Economy, Society, Environment) presented last year (Ciciotti, Dallara, Rizzi, 2008; Dallara, 2005a; Dallara, 2006, Dallara, 2008) and we enlarge it with the structure and the strategies of the LPA. The Local Public Administrations are the chief town of the province, all the other town of each province but the chief town, and the Public Administration of Province. The structural indicators of Local Public Administration are quantitative information about internal structural organization (number and skills of employees), about patrimonial and financial structure, about public expenses. The LPA strategies are described with the functional distribution of expenses, divided in expenses for economy (economic development, tourism, productive services), expenses for society (justice, local policy, education, culture, sport) and expenses for environment (urbanization, transport and mobility).
