The end of this week will see all Trevani have the option to vote for a new Sindico (mayor) for a five year term.
As a friend said everyone is your friend when you go into to Trevi now as everyone is campaigning hard. For some context, Trevi has a population of just over 8,000.
Trevi has been historically a left leaning town as has Umbria in general. This election we have a new national leftist party putting up a local candidate. Headed by the "charismatic" (his words not mine) Nichi Vendola, the snappily named Sinistra Ecologia Liberta party have been making a wave in Italian politics.
We wait to see if this has an impact on the result. I'll let you know the result.
