If someone asked you the most romantic spot in Italy, you might say Venice, Florence or Rome. What you probably wouldn’t say is the Italian parliament. Yet on Thursday — during a romance-killing debate on post-earthquake reconstruction — an MP made a marriage proposal.”Will you marry me?” asked Flavio Di Muro, producing a ring and looking at his partner, Elisa De Leo in the public gallery.
MPs gave the parliamentarian — from Matteo Salvini’s far-right League party — a round of applause. But Robert Fico, president of the parliament, was less impressed. “I understand everything, however, I don’t think it’s appropriate to use an intervention for this,” he said. It is unclear at this stage whether Elisa accepted the proposal. (Euro news)
