In recent years Italy has moved towards greater devolution of regulatory powers at regional level, in a European context where this dimension becomes increasingly important. This review analyses first the institutional set‐up for multi‐level regulation,
the specifics of power sharing between the State and the regions, as well as the horizontal and vertical co‐ordination mechanisms in place in the country, before turning to the use of policy instruments and regulatory tools in four Italian regions: Veneto, Calabria,
Campania and Tuscany.
