Which are the most dangerous and unsafe cities in Italy?
National security is one of the pillars of a well-functioning country. In Italy, unfortunately, criminal episodes occur somewhat throughout Italy, and in this regard a ranking of Italian Cities considered most dangerous.
The ranking is based on data provided by the Department of Public Safety of the Ministry of the Interior, which analyzes the number of crimes reported during the year.
At the top of the ranking are large cities, where not only a large number of inhabitants reside, but also where tourism is increasingly flourishing, thus clearly showing the connection between crime and the intense presence of tourists.
Considering the criterion of reported crimes, it should be assumed that cities in which crimes occur, even on a constant basis, without being reported to the authorities could be excluded from the ranking.
So let's seewhich are the 10 most dangerous cities in Italy, together with the relative number of registered complaints (per 100 thousand inhabitants).
