I have a problem with the result of reverse geocoding. I have created a local instance of openstreet with an Italy OSM database downloaded from geofabrik. The local instance daily updates the database. When I search an address with public request:

https://nominatim.openstreetmap.org/reverse?format=xml&lat=41.9189&lon=12.52001&zoom=18&accept-language=it

The result of road is: "Viale Ventuno Aprile"

But when I call my local instance with the same request the result of road is different. Why?
