|"Goodbye Silvio! We won't miss you!"|
|The jubilant crowd outside parliament Saturday night.|
|They were so happy by the time they climbed to the Quirinale |
that a choir and orchestra delivered the Hallelujah Chorus.
|How many street demonstrations include cello and bassoon in their music-makers?|
|Mostly tourists Sunday morning in the piazza of the Palazzo Quirinale.|
|Lots of news crews still set up.|
|A left-leaning paper, la Repubblica has an unflattering photo through the car window|
and says, "Berlusconi lascia, la piazza in festa." (B. leaves, the piazza has a party.)
|Libero is a far right paper and Berlusconi supporter. The scare tactics start already:|
"Arriva il signor tasse. OCCHIO AI PORTAFOGLI"
(Mr. Tax is arriving. WATCH YOUR WALLETS.)
|il Giornale is owned by Berlusconi. The photo shows a serious Silvio as he leaves parliament.|
The headline is Monti, Il Precario ([Mario] Monti, the interim—implying uncertain results.)
