Till now I used only Political Boundary from Vmap0.

I did just minor editing: joined some region that was splitted 
due Vmap "tiles", removed (I)sle of Man from (I)taly, added San 

I did it all importing shape into PostGIS with 
shp2pgsql, then using PostGIS functions like GeomUnion().

For cities coordinates I used ISTAT (Italian Statistic 
Institute) data, freely available.
