[Autom. eng. transl.] The governance of the local authority has been profoundly modified by several reforms, some of which have included the introduction of spoil system logics. In this perspective, the present work aims to contribute to the need for empirical evidence, investigating the level and methods of application of the spoil system in local authorities. From the study of the cases presented there emerges a growing application of the spoil system outside the local authority and a scarce use of it as a system to change the organizational balance in a rewarding and empowering perspective. In conclusion, some implications are discussed and some possible evolutionary trajectories of the modalities of application of the spoil system in the local institutions are mentioned.
