TODAY FOR THE FIRST TIME IN ITALY ROME MAYOR MARINO REGISTERS 16 GAY MARRIAGES CELEBRATED ABROAD.

The facts:

  • Gay marriage is, as of now, illegal in Italy;
  • Rome Mayor Ignazio Marino, in open opposition to the italian legislation, defiantly registered the marriage of 16 gay couples, many with children, that had been celebrated abroad. After receiving a standing ovation in the Protomoteca, he stated “This is a special day for many of you, but for me and for Rome as well. […] Laws are meant to allow the same rights to everybody […] Today we’re just registering, but we’ll go ahead. And I know, we’ll go ahead together.”
  • Interior Minister Angelino Alfano harshly contested the Mayor, claiming he was basically just “signing autographs” since the italian legislation doesn’t allow gay marriages;
  • Rome Prefect vowed to back the Minister’s stance, commanding Marino to stop or he would make the registrations void. Marino replied he’d defend his choice to the end;
  • The Italian Bishops’ Conference (CEI) stated it was “an unacceptable presuntion” to undertake such an action during the last day of a summit on the Synod of family;
  • On the stairs to the Capitol, next to those who celebrated,  protestants manifested their disapproval. About 70 esponents from right wing organizations were blocked near the Capitol; the police headquarters pressed charges against the promoters of the unauthorized protest.

The event was shared and commented on twitter, under the ashtag

Marino is also the first Mayor of Rome to ever attend a Gay Pride and he has been stating he wants to open Rome’s registries since at least January 2014. Here’s a list of all the cities that currently have their civil registries open to homosexual couples.

Prime Minister Renzi recently said that there is a law for gay unions ready to be discussed in the Parliament from January 2015. The law would reportedly follow the current German model, which would grant partners almost the same rights as married heterosexual couples and the possibility to adopt if the child is the biological offspring of one of the partners.

I don’t know if someone pointed it out in the comments but just for clarification, he’s not the only one or the first one to do it - a lot of mayors in a lot of cities in Italy have started registering same sex marriages for at least ten days by now. And it makes me very happy :))) Alfano can go back to the middle ages.

Tho probably the middle ages were too progressive for him.

ora tutte le volte che qualcosa passa in dogana ci fanno pagare 30 euro

a prescindere dal valore della merce vogliono 30 euro

non importa se hai pagato 10

bello

eh cosa come?…

Il giappone non lo so ma so che la dogana cinese sta avendo tantissimi problemi e sta bloccando tutti i pacchi. Ma proprio tutti. E probabilmente fa pagare per la cosa.
