The Verona City Council unanimously expressed solidarity with the population of Nagorno Karabakh and invited the Mayor to ask the Italian institutions to recognize the Republic of Artsakh.

The initiative was signed by the municipal councilors Alberto Zelger (first signatory), Vito Comencini, Maria Fiore Adami, Laura Bocchi, Paola Bressan, Matteo De Marzi, Daniela Drudi, Alessandro Gennari, Anna Grassi, Gianmarco Padovani, Rosario Russo, Roberto Simeoni and Andrea Velardi.
