THERE IS NO ITALY:
89 percent of Venetians want to break up with Italy (The Week, 3/24/14)
Venetians have voted overwhelmingly in an unofficial and non-binding referendum to break away from Italy and form their own sovereign state. Eighty-nine percent of voters in the lagoon city and its surrounding area opted to break away. Organizers said that 2.36 million people -- 73 percent of those eligible to take part -- voted. The proposed new country, the Republic of Venice, would include the five million inhabitants of Italy's Veneto region.
