    ”The violence occurred along Largo d’Ancona in central Milan, according to the preliminary investigation judge, with protesters also targeting the Palazzo delle Stelline in Corso Magenta. Those arrested face charges including devastation and arson. They are all on record for previous involvement in violent protests and illegal occupation of buildings. They are “part of a group that had organised the trip well in advance to participate in the demonstration and commit violent acts,” the judge wrote.”  http://www.ansa.it/english/news/
