this specific case was pointed out some time ago also on the italian
mailing list.
You're right on the issue, but on Wikidata recently someone created the
entity for the proper cities in Italy.
Here's the sparql query (all the objects which are marked capital of an
italian municipality)


Not all the municipalities have this property (6k objects instead of 8k)
