Well, VP, you certainly have some interesting politics there. Just read a little about the Fire Star "Movement".

Part of the Beppe Grillo movement. I have read a lot about him in the last year or so.

V Day in Livorno. I've been reading up a bit on the different parties. It's very complicated for an outsider. And words are used in so many different ways. I'd be a little leery of this man, if for no other reason than reformers often end up worse than what preceded them. :) Best wishes for a good future for Livorno!
