Italy’s elections are in a week and campaigns in the country are running on full speed. The leader of Italy’s right-wing Lega party, Matteo Salvini, organised a successful rally in Milan yesterday.

At least 50,000 Italians were present at Milan’s Piazza del Duomo (Cathedral Square), Salvini said on Facebook. He thanked the people who came to support him and the thousands who were watching his live stream.

Salvini’s Lega party has a good chance to win the elections. Together with Berlusconi’s Forza Italia, the party formed a right-wing bloc to keep the left out.
