The number and disposition of Italian provinces, as established when the Kingdom of Italy was founded in 1861, did not undergo any change till the Fascist regime came to power in 1923. The Fascist government set up new provinces by dividing the old ones, as happened to Genoa, whose province gave birth to the provinces of La Spezia (1923) and Savona (1927). Such actions were hampered by Genoa's provincial administration; in case it was not possible to keep its territory from being dismembered, they would try to obtain parts of other provinces, on which they claimed old rights, as compensation for the loss.
