We present a model that explains how population movements reflect the welfare properties of local jurisdiction size. Then, we use the consolidation of municipalities brought about by the fascist dictatorship in Italy during the 1920s to provide some suggestive evidence on theory's predictions. Our empirical findings hint that the consolidation was associated with net welfare gains for the communities involved.
