An ongoing change in regional governance triggered by the Delrio Law (No. 56/2014) led to a differentiated landscape across the country. This reshaping consists more in provisional, inertial and somehow random tendencies than in governance models that are consolidating. What emerges is a not homogeneous system under a variable geometry. The final result is that although transitional, these governance models can mark a divide between first movers - which started a rescaling process - and late comer regions - which did not and thus lag behind, still in midstream. Yet, like all policy legacies, this divide can significantly impact future centre-periphery relations.
