Venice votes in unofficial referendum

Venetians who want to separate from Italy are holding a vote, which the national government won't recognise.

    Some residents of Venice, one of the world's most famous tourist spots, want to break-away from Italy.

    An unofficial referendum closes on Friday.

    The vote won't be recognised by the Italian government but organisers hope it will be the first step to independence.
