  1. a northern Italy (top): 12 cities; central and southern Italy (bottom): 19 cities
  2. b Calculated as the difference between observed mortality and baseline in the COVID-19 period
  3. c Calculated as the ratio between COVID-19 deaths and total excess mortality in the COVID-19 period
  4. d Calculated as the difference between observed mortality and baseline in the period before COVID-19
  5. e Calculated as the ratio between deficit mortality in the period before COVID-19 and total excess mortality during COVID-19
