I am looking for administrative divisions' shapefile for Italy for QGIS. I found one which is a bit old with some inconsistencies.
Can anyone please suggest a database to find better (or newer) shapefiles?

You may download the data using the "WFS Services" of the National Geoportal, following this link:
and using the URL from "Unita' amministrative regionali, provinciali e comunali".
You may have a look at the GADM database, but sometimes shapefiles have inaccuracies too
