In Rome and Turin, the decline is more consistent in the suburbs, those that in the first round awarded the center-right candidates Michetti and Damilano (and where five years ago the M5s candidates Virginia Raggi and Chiara Appendino had swept away). In the capital the lowest figure, 19,43% – six points less than in the first round – is that of the VI Town Hall (Tor Bella Monaca, Torre Maura, Torre Angela), which already two weeks ago had been the one where the least voted. Here, in contrast with the rest of the city, Enrico Michetti had disconnected Roberto Gualtieri of twenty points (39.93% against 18.99%). In the central and pro-Gualtieri municipalities, on the other hand, the turnout is above average: 27,27% in Town Hall I e 29,74% del II, albeit here too down by between three and four points.
