Students clash with Sicily police in Palermo
Clashes flared on the streets of Palermo, Sicily, where some students apparently tried to enter a local government building.
In total, thousands of students have demonstrated in Italy ahead of a Senate vote on controversial education reforms.
The government has said the changes will save billions and create a more merit-based system, but critics say universities are already severely under-funded.
