Northern League protest by bringing gelato to Senate

Referencing recent Economist cover, against 1,000-day programme

(ANSA) - Rome, September 16 - Regionalist Northern League party members brought gelato to the Senate Tuesday in protest over Italian Premier Matteo Renzi's presentation of his 1,000-day reform programme.
    The gelato was referencing a recent cover story in Britain's The Economist, which focused on the serious problems within the eurozone economy. On the cover, Renzi was pictured eating an ice cream aboard a sinking boat along with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Francois Hollande, with European Central Bank (ECB) President Mario Draghi bailing out the boat.
