The Times has a story today about the Tramvia:
"Thousands of protesters are to throng the streets of Florence tomorrow before a local referendum on a new tram system that some conservationists say will cause irretrievable damage to the city's mediaeval and Renaissance treasures."
It has the usual quotes for and against - blah, blah. The Tram is a good idea in our opinion. It is better than buses, better than cars, and none of the arguments I have heard against hold much water once you dig a little deeper into them.
