Thousands of protesters took to the streets of Florence on Sunday to march against Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini with clashes breaking out between the demonstrators and police forces.
The demonstration was organized by left-wing organizations after a banner against Salvini was removed in the city of Bergamo last Monday, sparking a wave of protests against him all over the country.
Salvini is currently touring Italy campaigning for the next European parliamentary elections, where he is hoping to increase the number of MEP that his party Lega has.
