Italy's 150th birthday but not everyone is celebrating
It is a not-so-happy 150th birthday to Italy.
The country was unified on March 17 1861 after a series of battles between competing power bases.
But not everyone in the country is in the mood for celebrating.
There was even a row about whether the day should be marked with a national holiday.
So has this anniversary revealed more about what divides Italy than unites it?
Duncan Kennedy reports.
