Still, a number of Italian historians recognize it as de facto capital (sources in Italian). At least, they consider it capital of the Regno del Sud/Kingdom of the South (no, it's not Game of Thrones!), made of some territories not under control of Allied Military Government of Occupied Territories, namely some Apulian provinces, including B, and Sardinia to establish an official government to the country in opposition to the Fascist Republic of Salò.
A final note, just for the sake of curiosity: a law from 1871 recognized Rome as capital of Italy until then Florence; but only in 2001 it was recognized in the Constitution.
