itItaly

Italy does not yet have either a national Ombudsman or a national Committee on Petitions. However, it does have an extensive network of regional ombudsmen. The Regional Ombudsman for Tuscany is the President of the National Coordination Body of Regional Ombudsmen in Italy. The Coordination Body is hosted by the Conference of Presidents of the Regional Parliamentary Assembly in Rome.
