Venice wants to abandon Italy

  • An online poll indicates that Venice dreams of being independent. Reports suggest that 2.3M voters participated in the poll and made it clear that people wish to separate Veneto from the rest of Italy. 

    "The Venetian Republic is born again," the camp leader said. However, the issue is that residents who don't belong to Veneto could have voted in the poll using fake names. 

    Unlike the 1997 bid for independence, today's secessionists are different and said they're not "so stupid."

    "It will be a peaceful change." Analysts mentioned that the main motive behind the move is economic.
