Italian urban areas will lose an average of 3.1%. Positive numbers are expected in Bolzano (+ 21.5%), Verona (+ 12.1%), Parma (+ 10%), Modena (+ 9%) and Bologna (+ 8.7%).

Overall, the European Statistical Institute indicates that three out of five urban areas will see their population increase. A trend affecting 15 of the 27 European countries.

Malta (35.4%), Ireland (29.2%) and Sweden (25.1%) were the biggest gainers. Latvia (-17.7%), Greece (-16.7%) and Poland (-10.3%).
