Bolzano tops wealth chart (ANSA) - Rome, November 27 - The northern Italian province of Bolzano is the richest place in Italy, statistics agency Istat said Wednesday.

The semi-autonomous German-speaking province near the Austrian border had a 2012 per capita GDP of 37,316 euros, more than double that of Campania, the region around Naples, with 16,369 euros.

Campania came bottom of the survey, below Calabria, third last, and Sicily, second last.

The semi-autonomous largely French-speaking region of Val d'Aosta, on the French border, was second in the ranking and Lombardy, the region around Italy's business capital Milan, was third.
