Italy has both regions and provinces.

For example:

- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abruzzo (Region) Capital: L'Aquila

- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Province_of_Chieti (Province) Capital: Chieti

(and the main town of a comune is technically a capital too).

So L'Aquila is the capital of the Region and its own Province too.

Rome is the capital of Italy, of the Region of Lazio, and the Province of 
Rome.
