Italy: 150 Cities Now Offer Civil Unions for Gays and Lesbians
Yesterday, our friend Linda Giovanna Zambanini reported on a groundbreaking marriage case in Italy, and on the election of a mayor in Rome who has promised civil unions for gay and lesbian couples there. Today, Linda sent us a list of cities in Italy that already recognize some form of civil union.

The cities include Pisa, Florence, Perugia, Ravenna, Milan, Bologna, Padova, Torino, and a host of lesser-known cities and towns. You can see the full list here, but it is in Italian.

In related news, the town of Vimercate just voted to allow gay and lesbian couples to have adjacent graves after they pass away, but the local Catholics aren't happy about it. Gay Star News reports:

Vimercate, a town in the Lombardy region, changed the rules yesterday (11 June) so gay and lesbian couples now have the right to apply to have adjacent graves in the local cemetery when they die. The industrial town of 25,000 inhabitants, near Milan, split on the issue, with a part of the assembly - led by left-wing parties - voting against the new local law. Even the local Catholic priest, don Mirko Bellora, opposed the move. He said: 'I hope this local law is going to be changed again.'

A nice step, but marriage would be nicer.
