Tens of thousands of people flooded the streets of Rome on Saturday to protest the government of Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi amid preparations for regional elections, marred by problems over electoral lists.

AFP - Tens of thousands took to the streets of Rome on Saturday to demonstrate against Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi ahead of regional elections.
  
Protesters with banners and balloons in the colours of opposition parties filled the Piazza del Popolo square. Many chanted support for Manchester United football team, who beat Berlusconi's AC Milan on Wednesday.
  
Pierluigi Bersani, leader of the main opposition Democratic Party, said that at the March 28 and 29 regional polls, "we will say another Italy is possible, we will fight Berlusconi."
  
Berlusconi's People of Freedom party has seen its preparations for the vote marred by problems over electoral lists, a situation described by President Giorgio Napolitano as a "true mess".
