Genoa, May 22 - The city of Genoa approved civil
unions on Wednesday for heterosexual and homosexual couples
alike.
The city council measure will create a city registry for
civil unions with provisions aimed at putting the rights and
duties of established, unmarried couples - regardless of sex -
on par with those of married couples.
The first such unions are expected to take place before
summer.
In Wednesday's vote, there were 27 votes in favour, 11
against and 2 abstentions.
The centre-left and anti-establishment 5-Star Movement
council members made up the majority vote.
Conservatives cast ballots against the measure, including
members of Silvio Berlusconi's People of Freedom Party (PdL),
the regionalist Northern League, and the law-and-order Italy of
Values party.
