Frazione
"Frazione" ([fratˈtsjoːne]; pl. frazioni [fratˈtsjoːni]) is the Italian name given in administrative law to a type of territorial subdivision of a comune; for other administrative divisions, see municipio, circoscrizione, quartiere.[1] It is cognate to the English word fraction, but in practice is roughly equivalent to "parishes" or "wards" in other countries.Contents1 Description 2 History 3 Countries using the term 4 Officers 5 References 6 See alsoDescription[edit] Typically the term frazioni applies to the villages surrounding the principal town (the capoluogo) of a comune. Subdivision of a comune is optional; some comuni have no frazioni, but others have several dozen. The comune usually has the same name of the capoluogo, but not always. In practice, most frazioni are small villages or hamlets, occasionally a clump of houses. Not every hamlet is classified as a frazione; those that are not are often referred to as località, for example, in the telephone book
