The President of Italy in Rome

You can always tell by the fender flag - you can see it here - of the Quirinale. 


  1. Can anyone actually name the President of Italy? Or the president of most countries? Presidents are often merely superannuated politicians or bureaucrats.

    I always point that out to those who want to see the demise of the British monarchy. Replace that with faceless bureaucrats? No thank you!

    The Duchess of Cambridge is now pregnant with the future monarch of UK and about 15 other countries. This made WORLD headlines. How many great-grandchildren does the President of Italy have? And more to the point - who cares?

  2. Thanks God I live in a Republic!!
