Rome, May 21 - A Trieste restaurant owner spent
Monday night perched precariously on the dome of St. Peter's
looking down on Vatican City as he continued his protest against
European Union policies.
Authorities were attempting Tuesday morning to convince
Marcello Di Finizio, who has twice before climbed the dome as a
protest, to come down before he falls to his death.
This time, Di Finizio said he wanted Italian government
help in defending his sea-front restaurant from what he says are
European policies that threaten his business.
Vatican guards and police closely watched the 47-year-old
man as he risked his life to climb down to a ledge over a window
on the dome to hang a banner reading: "Stop the massacre, no to
the euro".
Di Finzio staged similar demonstrations on July 30 and
October 2, 2012, to protest ex-premier Mario Monti's government
and austerity cuts, among other things.
