Conservative cultural summit divides Italy
VERONA, Italy (AP) — Verona — the city of Romeo and Juliet — was the backdrop for a culture clash Saturday, as it hosted both a conservative congress on family values and a march by civic groups who denounced the event as a movement to limit LGBT and women’s rights.
意大利维罗纳(美联社)--维罗纳--罗密欧与朱丽叶的城市--是周六文化冲突的背景，因为它主办了一场关于家庭价值观的保守派代表大会和公民组织的游行，他们谴责这一事件是一场限制 LGBT 和妇女权利的运动。
The World Congress of Families, which runs through Sunday, revealed yet another rift in Italy’s governing coalition, as well as providing a platform for right-wing extremists seeking to reopen the debate over abortion, which was legalized in Italy in 1978.
将持续到周日的世界家庭大会(World Congress of Families)揭示了意大利执政联盟的又一裂痕，也为右翼极端分子提供了一个平台，他们试图重启有关堕胎的辩论。1978年，堕胎在意大利合法化。
Tens of thousands of demonstrators marched festively through Verona — which besides being the literary backdrop for Shakespeare’s tale of doomed love is also the first Italian city to identify as “pro-family” — against what they saw was as an assault on hard-won rights for homosexual unions, abortion and divorce.
