(ANSA) - Rome, October 20 - As many as one million people may show up in Piazza San Giovanni in Rome on October 25 to protest recently passed labour reforms, according to a survey by the Tecne' research firm for the CGIL trade union confederation.
    Actual bus seat reservations number about 120,000, excluding the region of Lazio, where the demonstration will be held. CGIL, Italy's biggest and most left-wing union, said the reservations also did not count participants coming from other nations for the event.
