Package contatins all italian enti territoriali in sqlite db

Project description


This package provides vocabulary for all italian ‘enti territoriali’. For storage we are using sqlite3 database wrapped with sqlalchemy.

First lets import the vocabulary (which should have already a vocabulary object):

>>> from redturtle.entiterritoriali import EntiVocabulary as EV

Now let’s try the simple query: for regione, provincia and comune:

>>> EV.regione('Emilia-Romagna')

>>> EV.provincia('Ferrara')

>>> EV.comune('Ferrara')

Then let’s check if we have all of them:

>>> len(EV.allRegioni())

>>> len(EV.allProvince())

>>> len(EV.allComuni())

Now we can try to use like statesment. We can use helper methods:

>>> EV.comuniByLetter('Mod')

>>> EV.provinceByLetter('Bo')

>>> EV.regioniByLetter('L')

… but you can also build your own filters using sqlalchemy and pass them as list of arguments:

>>> sql_filter1 = (EV.engine.comuni.provincia == 'BO')
>>> sql_filter2 = ('Gal%'))
>>> EV.comuni([sql_filter1, sql_filter2])

You can find more at

Now some more advanced querying - getting all comuni for provincia:

>>> EV.comuni4provincia('BO')
[MappedComuni(comune_id=4038,comune=u"Anzola dell'Emilia"...u'')]

and all province for given regione:

>>> EV.province4regione('03') #Lombardia

Finally we can also map vocabulary to DisplayList (for Archetypes use case):

>>> from redturtle.entiterritoriali.vocabulary import mapDisplayList
>>> mapDisplayList(EV.allRegioni())
[(u'13', u'Abruzzo'), (u'17', u'Basilicata'),...(u'05', u'Veneto')]

But it should work also for different enti in one vocabulary, like here:

>>> regione1 = EV.regione('Lombardia')
>>> comune1 = EV.comune('Ferrara')
>>> enti = [regione1,comune1]
>>> mapDisplayList(enti)
[(u'03', u'Lombardia'), (u'038008', u'Ferrara')]


Developed with the support of Regione Emilia Romagna; Regione Emilia Romagna supports the PloneGov initiative.
