  • Description

    There was an uneasy calm yesterday (Thursday) in southern Italian city of Reggio Calabria as it entered the fifteenth day of a general strike, part off its seven-month-old revolt against the choice of Catanzaro as regional capital. Blood and debris in the streets testified to the violence of the previous day (Wednesday) when 65 people were injured.

    As the day dawned, police were barred from working-class areas at both ends of the city by barricades, but these were later removed.

    This film was shot by Rome-based cameraman Enzo de Giambattista, who has covered much of the rioting in Reggio. A number of his previous stories have been injected into the Eurovision network via RAI in Rome.
