As Italians began trickling to the polls to vote in the general election on Sunday, some protested to show their disillusionment with politics.
Angry at plans to build a landfill site nearby, one group of young Neapolitans gathered 600 election identification cards and sent them to the Italian president instead of using them to vote.
“I’m not going to vote because I don’t feel represented by the institutions and because there is no-one that worries about preserving our rights,” group member Sebastian Perrone told the Ansa news agency.
