Italy's main opposition parties, led by Matteo Salvini's Lega Party, held a joint rally in Rome on Saturday, protesting against the government.
Despite 4,200 seats being granted by the Italian authorities for the rally — each one metre (3.3 feet) apart —, many of the seats remained vacant.
Apart from Salvini, the rally saw the participation of MEP Antonio Tajani, and Fratelli d'Italia leader Giorgia Meloni, who took turns to address their supporters from stage.
Maurizio Gasparri, an Italian member of parliament who was present at the rally, said, «We ask for a real project for the future of Italy. The Conte government does not know how to do it. So, the centre-right is united to propose it.»
Italy is due to hold its local election at some point between October 11 and December 6.
