Foreigners in Italy with a regular residence permit - and therefore outside the EU - are, according to Istat, 3 million and 700mila.
The two most widespread communities are the Albanian and Moroccan communities which, by themselves, represent about a quarter of the total. Mapping the presence of foreigners in the area, however, more marked provincial differences are discovered and multi-ethnic Italy appears more varied.
In this context there are only two provinces - as reported The Sun 24 hours - which host nationalities that recur only once at the top of the ranking: Pordenone hosts more Americans than citizens of other countries (the figure is probably connected with the presence of the Aviano military base) while in Parma the Moldavians are (albeit slightly) be the most numerous among foreign residents.

The Albanian community is the most present in the territory, and is the main one in 40 Italian provinces, namely the following: Varese, Brescia, Trento, Bolzano, Udine, Pavia, Piacenza, Alessandria, Cuneo, Asti, Imperia, Genoa, Savona, La Spezia, Lucca, Pistoia, Pisa, Livorno, Ravenna, Forlì-Cesena, Rimini, Pesaro-Urbino, Ancona, Arezzo, Siena, Grosseto, Viterbo, Terni, Perugia, Rieti, Ascoli Piceno, Teramo, Pescara, Chieti, Frosinone, Matera , Taranto, Bari, Brindisi and Lecce.
Spreading the speech to the regions, Lombardy, Tuscany, Emilia-Romagna, Piedmont and Veneto are those that host more Albanian citizens. Calabria, Basilicata, Molise, Valle d'Aosta and Sardinia, on the other hand, are the regions that host the least.
As for the other communities, as mentioned, to follow there is the Moroccan one with 35 province. Behind the Ukrainian community with five provinces (Avellino, Benevento, Caserta, Naples, Verbania), the Bengali community (Gorizia, Venice, Palermo), Indian (Latina, Mantova, Cremona) and Pakistani (Macerata, Crotone, Caltanissetta).
With provinces we find the Chinese community (Florence and Prato), the Egyptian one (Milan and Lodi), the Filipino (Rome and Cagliari), the Serbian (Vicenza and Trieste), the Tunisian (Ragusa and Trapani) and that of Sri Lanka (Catania and Messina).
