What do the Romans expect from Mayor Rutelli? (1994)
Immediately after Rutelli’s election as mayor at the end of 1993, Eurispes conducted a survey on the needs and expectations of the Italian capital’s citizens. Not so much on their political preferences as on the concrete problems of Rome. The results of the survey, conducted on a very large sample (2,005 people), are extremely reliable: they confirm that traffic and health alone account for 70% of the Romans’ concerns. But they also explain how these problems are perceived by citizens according to their age, profession and, unusually, according to the area of the city where they live. The survey is, in fact, an intended agenda for the first hundred days of the new mayor: written point by point by his voters.
