La secessione delle province in Italia - The secession of Italian provinces is an institutional phenomenon that affects our country from North to South since the 90s and is far from a conclusion. The aim of this paper is to analyse this institutional change, starting from the Constitutional and legislative contexts (articles 114 and 133 of the Constitution and the 267/2000 law). After a brief description of the eight new provinces that were born in 1992 and a survey of the related literature, I consider the presence of an «organizing committee» of the secession that makes a sunk investment to obtain a benefit from the rent of the new offices. I use a model of rent-seeking neglecting any implication for citizens. JEL H70, H72, H77
