Since 1972 Rome has been divided into administrative areas, called municipi (until 2001 named circoscrizioni). They were created for administrative reasons to increase decentralisation in the city. Each municipio is governed by a president and a council of four members who are elected by its residents every five years. The municipi frequently cross the boundaries of the traditional, non-administrative divisions of the city.
The latter are 22 rioni, subdivisions of the historic centre all of which are located within the Aurelian Walls except Prati; 35 quartieri (quarters), 6 suburbi (suburbs) and 53 zone (zones), the farthermost subdivisions, most of which end to the borders of the municipality.
