In 2012-13 the Modena municipality transferred five directly run kindergartens into a newly-established foundation with a private legal status, owned by the municipality but partially free from the legal constraints on hiring and personnel expenditure existing for local government. The article analyses the main features of this experience, which may represent a solution to the staff shortage shared by many municipalities, more politically viable than externalisation to independent organisations.
