Ignazio Marino, the mayor of Rome, on Saturday announced he would back plans for a civil union registry and the registration of gay couples’ foreign marriages. According to the blog Agere per Formulas, Marino made his announcement moments before the start of Rome’s Gay Pride Parade, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. The news comes after Fano late last month became the first Italian town to register the marriage of a gay couple without a court order and Luigi De Magistris, the mayor of Naples, signaled his willingness to register the foreign marriages of gay couples.
