Hi everybody. I don't know english very well so I'm sorry if I make some mistakes. And I'm sorry if this is not the right place to make this question, but I can't find a dedicated section where people can ask for this kind of help.

Let's start:

I have this query
SELECT count(*)
FROM sispc.funghi.consulenza_pronto_soccorso as c
JOIN sispc.gaa.agente as ag ON c.autore =
JOIN sispc.ana.pf_persona as pf1 ON = ag.persona_id
JOIN sispc.anapratica.pratica as p ON = c.pratica_id
JOIN sispc.anapratica.pratica_anagrafica as pana ON pana.pratica_id =
JOIN sispc.ana.pf_persona as pf2 ON pana.anagrafica_id = pf2.sispc_id
JOIN sispc.gaa.ao_uo_zona as uoZona ON = p.uo
JOIN sispc.gaa.ao_uo as uo ON = uoZona.uo_id
JOIN sispc.gaa.zona as zona ON = uoZona.zona_id
JOIN sispc.anapratica.pratica_assegnatario as pa ON = pa.pratica_id
JOIN sispc.gaa.agente as a ON = pa.agente_id
JOIN sispc.ana.pf_persona as pf ON = a.persona_id

that returns 33 (i want 13) because of the last but two JOIN (there are more than one record in pa (pratica_assegnatario) that join p (pratica)).
I need that that JOIN references only one record in pratica_assegnatario (pa), the one with the max id!
Do I need a nested query?
I don't know if you understand my problem, but I hope so and I hope you can help me. I am a newbie so sorry if this question is too stupid :)
Bye, thank you.

Try replacing this line:

JOIN sispc.anapratica.pratica_assegnatario as pa ON = pa.pratica_id

with something like this:

JOIN (select pratica_id, max(id) as id
      from sispc.anapratica.pratica_assegnatario
      group by pratica_id) pa 
  ON = pa.pratica_id
