Rome Lights Up in Rainbows to Celebrate Same-Sex Unions

Trevi Fountain

Ancient monuments showed their true colors after historic decision from the country’s parliament.

The Italian capital last night was covered in rainbows as Romans welcomed the passage of same-sex civil unions in the country.

The colors of LGBT pride were projected on essential Roman monuments such as the Trevi Fountain and the Coliseum, which also featured the word "love" in multiple languages in an alternate projection.

Pictures of the monuments whizzed through social media with the hashtags #lovewins and #unionicivili, Italian for "civil unions."

Rome also includes the Vatican City, the seat of the Roman Catholic Church--the biggest opponent to the civil unions bill becoming law.
