ROME (Sputnik) - Italians in more than a thousand cities, towns, and villages across the country went to the polls on Sunday morning to elect mayors and municipal councilors.
Polls opened at 7 a.m. (5:00 GMT) in Rome, Milan, Naples, Turin, Bologna, Rimini, and the southern province of Calabria. More than 12 million Italians are eligible to cast ballots.
