The “Portofino” of the Ionian province is Taormina. If the village on the Ligurian Riviera is the “richest” municipality in Italy, with a per capita income of 90,610 euros, the city of Centauro places itself at the top of the ranking of the 32 municipalities of the Ionian district and the Alcantara valley.
The data released by the Ministry of Economy and Finance, referring to the 2022 tax year, overall show a leap in the wealth of Italians, with an average income of 21,752 euros (1,007 euros more than in 2021) and an increase on an annual basis of 4.85%, even if the progression was eroded by an inflation which, in 2022, stood at 8.1%.
Taormina, the capital of Sicilian tourism, with its 7,294 taxpayers, reached a per capita income of 19,803 euros in 2022, with a variation of +2,425 euros compared to 2021 (14%). In second place Furci Siculo, with an average of 18,721 euros (+1,040 euros) declared by 2136 taxpayers; on the lowest step of the podium S. Alessio Siculo, with 18,575 euros (+1,593 euros) and 1057 taxpayers. Limina brings up the rear, with 11,675 euros (+554 euros, 417 taxpayers).
