After Venice, also Naples could remain without a Mayor

While the Government is looking for a new route for the cruise ships within its Lagoon, Venice is without a Mayor. Mr Giorgio Orsoni resigned after being arrested on charges of illicit electoral financing, and a caretaker appointed by the Prefect is still in charge. Incidentally, the caretaker discovered that the Municipality budget was in disarray, being forced to make unpopular cuts to salaries and services.

Meanwhile in Naples, Mayor Luigi De Magistris was found guilty of abuse of power. He is not going to resign, but he could be suspended by the Prefect pursuant to the Severino Law, the same which was applied to Berlusconi.
