Status: Italy did not report officially to the EU ICZM Recommendation.
In Italy, ICZM as a management instrument has not been nationally practiced, as there is no national strategy. The administrative functions on the maritime state property have been integrally transferred from the State to the Regions. Therefore, Italy has a regional approach for coastal zone management and there is no single institution invested with the governance of the coastal zone. Furthermore, the regional and local approaches often appear sectoral.
