Italian regions of Lombardy and Veneto to vote on autonomy

As the Catalan crisis continues to rattle Spain, we turn our attention to Italy. On Sunday, 16 million Italians in the northern Lombardy and Veneto regions will vote in a non-binding referendum on greater autonomy from Rome. Since the 1990s, the battle for independence in these regions has been a driving force of the Eurosceptic, right-wing Northern League party. But with parliamentary elections fast approaching, the party is openly displaying more national ambitions. Our correspondents report.

A programme prepared by Patrick Lovett and Florence Viala.
