    ROMANCE AND DEMOCRACY COMBINED IN ROME ON JUNE 10 WHEN ANGELA BUCCI, RADIANT IN A WHITE BRIDAL GOWN, EXERCISED HER "RIGHT" TO BE LATE FOR HER OWN WEDDING AND HER RIGHT TO CHOOSE HER LOCAL GOVERNMENT REPRESENTATIVES. AFTER RECORDING HER VOTE IN THE POLLING STATION, SHE DROVE TO THE CHURCH TO GET MARRIED.

    ANGELA, AND MORE THAN THREE MILLION ITALIANS, WERE VOTING IN THE CRUCIAL LOCAL ELECTIONS THAT WILL TEST THE POPULARITY OF ITALY'S LEFT-LEANING GOVERNMENT. AMONG THE VOTERS: THE COMMUNIST PARTY LEADER, PALMIRO TOGLIATTI; AND THE FORMER PRESIDENT OF THE REPUBLIC, GIOVANNI GRONCHI.

    A BITTER, 50-DAY ELECTION CAMPAIGN HAS CENTRED AROUND THE CONTROVERSIAL POLICIES OF PRIME MINISTER AMINTORE FANFANI'S COALITION GOVERNMENT. SIGNOR FANFANI IS PLEDGED TO A SWEEPING PROGRAMME OF SOCIAL REFORM AND MORE STARE PLANNING.

    THE LOCAL ELECTIONS WERE HELD IN MORE THAN 100 ITALIAN MUNICIPALITIES AND FOR A NUMBER OF PROVINCIAL ADMINISTRATIONS. IN FIVE MAJOR CITIES, ROME NAPLES, PISA, BARI AND FOGGIA, POLLING CONTINUED UNTIL 2 P.M. ON JUNE 11. NEARLY TEN PERCENT OF THE ITALIAN ELECTORATE ARE ENTITLED TO VOTE, AND THEY WILL BE THE FIRST TO VOTE, AND THEY WILL BE THE FIRST TO VOTE SINCE THE FORMATION OF SIGNOR FANFANI'S COALITION WITH THE SUPPORT OF SIGNOR NENNI'S MARXIST SOCIALISTS.
