Town mints own money

A small town in Italy is going independent – and printing its own money to protest the government austerity cuts. Fillettino has a population of 550, but is making a big splash trying to set up itself up as a principality. The town’s currency is called the “Fiorito” and features a picture of the mayor on the back. Apparently the new money is already being used by townsfolk. Central government in Rome has not commented on the moves.
