The findings provide empirical evidence of an improvement of accounting information qulitative characteristics, even if a more decisive and complete moving to a full accrual accounting based system might further improve the relevance of Italian municipalities financial statements. This paper streams within the wider debate regarding the actual benefits of a transition toward a full accrual accounting system in the public sector.
