Next comes Veneto. They vote on autonomy on Oct 22.

Note that Cortina d'Ampezzo voted back in 2007 to leave the Veneto and join Trentino-Alto Adige. Nothing has happened since. Bunch of hypocrites.

The Veneto and Lombardy referenda this coming Sunday are commensurate in form and outcome to the wave of devolution that took place in Spain 40 to 35 years ago. Qualitatively a world away from Catalan independence.
