(ANSA) - Naples, September 12 - Police on Monday clashed with protestors demonstrating against a visit to Naples by Premier Matteo Renzi.
    Leftist city councillor and anarchist squat member Eleonora De Majo was hit on the head by a truncheon as she led some 30 protestors against the police in Galleria Umberto I, just across from the San Carlo opera house where Renzi is due to arrive at 21:00.
    Demonstrators let off red flares and unfurled a banner from the Insurgencia squat.
    Other police units clashed with another group of protestors nearer the opera house, as demonstrators tried to break through a cordon.
