    Background: During the months of anti-government rioting that have torn the Southern Italian town of Reggio Calabria, the other city at the centre of the trouble -- Catanzaro -- has remained peaceful and prosperous.

    Trouble erupted when the government confirmed Catanzaro as capital of the province of Calabria, the mountainous region of southern italy. Reggio Calabria, roughly twice the size of Catanzaro, had traditionally regarded itself as chief city of the region, and a violent campaign began for its reinstatement.

    After a recent period of calm, the situation may become critical again as a result of a football match between the two cities today (Wednesday) -- a fixture being played at Florence in an effort to avoid further violence.

    Meanwhile, in Catanzaro, despite the peaceful appearance, there have been indications that unrest would break out there if ever the city were demoted from its capital status.
