Some 10,000 people gathered at Milan’s Piazza del Duomo on Sunday to demand that the government approves legislation on same-sex civil unions, and to fight against discrimination.

Despite a long history of legislative proposals for civil unions, there is no official recognition of same-sex marriage in Italy.
