Guide to Cadastral Categories

The cadastral categories are tools for classifying buildings, used by the cadastre in Italy, based on the determination of the cadastral income.

The bases of their definition, as well as the calculation methods are reported in the Presidential Decree 1 December 1949, n. 1142. They are divided into groups: A, B, C, D, E, F.
