At the Italian railways held a regular 24-hour strike. The campaign will last from 21.00 on Thursday 8 July to 21.00 on Friday 9 July. It will lead to cancellation of hundreds of trains and significant difficulties to travel on many routes.
Among the canceled trains - many international from Italy to Switzerland and the individual trains in Austria and France. Cancelled as a number of major domestic and regional flights.

From late June across the country conducted a strike in protest against adopted in late May, a government decree on the so-called "financial maneuvers" in 2011-2013, which should provide a reduction in public expenditure in this period of almost 25 billion euros.Workers oppose the government's intentions to reduce budget costs, including salaries of civil servants.
