Giovanni Alemanno, who is a member of Italy`s National Alliance
, and who is either a "rightist"
or a "center rightist,"
depending on who you believe, has been elected Mayor of Rome.

because he feels that Rome isn`t the place for modern architecture. He`s probably right, too. Here is a picture of the Vatican

But the real reason a "right-wing"
politician has been elected mayor of a largely left-wing country, that once almost voted itself Communist
, is that he`s offered to crack down on crime
. American politicians take note.
