Every person in the world belongs to two categories: there are those who have a tenacious and optimistic character and those who have a negative vision of life. It happens to everyone to face delicate situations but it is the solution approach that changes depending on whether you are part of one or the other "faction". All this is well known, but how many of you know that it is possible to find out in which cities and places the incurable chronic pessimists are concentrated?
Since 2012, analyzes have been periodically conducted on the degree of happiness of Italian users active on Twitter. There is in fact a real coefficient called iHappy, that measure the happiness of tweets published by the people. Through this index it was possible to draw up one ranking of places with the highest concentration of disgruntled users, melancholy and distressed. The results gathered from these studies have provided interesting indications.
In fact, it seems that the big cities were on average more unhappy than the smaller ones. Genoa and Cagliari between the cities, Puglia and Emilia-Romagna if we consider the regions: these are the happiest places in Italy.
If you are an optimist by nature you will certainly not be impressed by these data, but if happiness for you is a utopian dream, we advise you to keep away from these cities: here are the 5 saddest provinces of ItalyEtc.

To underline the fact that two of the saddest cities of the "beautiful country" are located in the Veneto, will it be a coincidence?
