Ciao Andrea,
by default Postgresql views are read only. Even the simplest view made in
Postgresql needs a rule to be updated. After writing a statement for a
view, just take the habit of writing the rules for insert, update, delete.
Please read the chapter on the Rule System in the Postgresql Reference
Manual for the instructions.

Hi Matthias,
thx for response.
So the trouble is in my db.

Now I try to understand better why it is not working.

This is my actual try test:

create table schemaapp.repository(
 ID serial primary key NOT NULL,
 UUID varchar(50) NOT NULL,
 PROGETTO varchar(9) NOT NULL,
 GEOMETRIA1 geometry(MULTIPOINT, 3003)

create view schemaapp.v_repository_point as
 select as id,
  a.uuid as uuid,
  a.progetto as progetto,
  a.procedimento as procedimento,
  a.geometria1 as geometria
  schemappa.repository_wfs as a
  a.geometria1 is not null;

I will know if discover something.
thx again.
