Tens of thousands of so-called ‘sardine’ protesters flooded Piazza San Giovanni in Rome on Saturday, staging a huge protest against Italy’s far-right League Party and its leader Matteo Salvini.

Footage shows protesters in the ‘eternal city’ exhibiting numerous placards and banners depicting sardines as well as some demonstrators dressed in sardine costumes.

The movement held similar demonstrations in various cities across the country, including Florence, Rimini, Milan, Bologna and Modena.

Regional elections are set to take place in eight Italian regions in 2020, with Salvini and his party seeking to repeat the success they achieved in the Umbrian elections in 2019, when an alliance led by the League brought five decades of left-wing rule to an end.
