In Italy, a province (in Italian: provincia) is an administrative division of intermediate level between municipality (comune) and region (regione). A province is composed of many municipalities, and usually several provinces form a region.

ISO 3166-2 codes for Italy cover 103 provinces. Each province has a 2-letter code, that is also used for car signs. Together with the ISO 3166-1 code IT for Italy they form the ISO 3166-2 codes. The purpose of this family of standards is to establish a worldwide series of short abbreviations for places, for use on package labels, containers and such. Anywhere where a short alphanumeric code can serve to clearly indicate a location in a more convenient and less ambiguous form than the full place name.

Note: In 1999, the former Province Forlì / FO was renamed as Province Forlì-Cesena, commonly coded with FC. In the same year, the common coding for the Province Pesaro-Urbino has become PU instead of PS. However, ISO 3166-2 still sticks to the old codings.

Most of the regional and provincial authorities of Italy have websites, and some of them offer useful information for tourists (click on "Turismo"). The addresses usually take the format www. regione.nameofregion.it and www. provincia.nameofprovince.it respectively.
