Yesterday, 6th May, and today the people of Bagni di Lucca have been voting for their new Sindaco (mayor). I can’t vote, but I walked up to our nearest polling station the see what was going on. Sezione No 3 is at the Bagno Bernabo.
The view of Ponte a Serraglio is just gorgeous, especially on a glorious sunny day, like today.
The lovely old spa has been restored recently and we are still waiting to see it open. I went inside, but only a couple of rooms were open.
One of the local carabinieri was on hand to watch over the proceedings.
The electoral lists.
Voting finishes today. I wonder who will win.
I’ll let you know as soon as I find out.
Massimo Betti, the handsome fellow in the first photo is our new mayor. He is from Bagni di Lucca and has a pharmacy in La Villa. He is a well known and respected business man who knows and loves Bagni di Lucca. Let’s hope he can bring some positive changes to the villages.
