Civil couples for politicians, and blood donation for homosexuals[edit]

As far as I know, and after a brief research on the internet, in Italy if you are a member of parliament you have the right to register as a civil couple. In fact, there are a few politicians who live in a registered civil couple (Casini, for example), despite being against such form of recognition for other people.

Furthermore, the rules for blood donation exclude people who engage in a homosexual behaviour, even if in a stable relationship, from donating blood. This has undergone a lot of criticism recently, after a man has been refused the opportunity to donate, but up to now I don't think the rule has been changed. Can anyone please make some research and check this out? I'd do it myself, but I don't think I'd be able to respect all the rules for Wikipedia editing.

Northern league[edit]

"Nevertheless, there is a significant liberal tradition, particularly in the North"?????????????????????????? Noth Italy is Lega nord, the most homophobic party in Italy —Preceding unsigned comment added by 78.12.217.104 (talk) 23:54, 23 October 2009 (UTC) Lega Nord is just a party not the whole region! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 90.192.192.78 (talk) 06:24, 17 February 2010 (UTC)

Wrong translation...[edit]

I allow myself to change the part about unification of Italy : indeed, if you read the Italian page, or any other site for that matter, you will see that the Kingdom of Sardegna DID NOT take into consideration other states' non criminalizing legislation, and only the kingdom of Sicily still outlawed it. It is the OPPOSITE : Kingdom of Sardegna applied its own CRIMINALIZING legislation to every other state, EXCEPT the Kingdom of Sicily, which was the only one NOT PENALIZING homosexuality. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.141.93.204 (talk) 08:44, 5 May 2011 (UTC)
