Virginia Raggi

Rome has elected its first female mayor in a landslide victory for Virginia Raggi, an anti-establishment newcomer from the populist protest party the Five Star Movement. 
The 37-year-old lawyer won support for speaking out against corruption and deteriorating public services in the Italian capital. 
Her victory comes after dozens of local officials and businessmen were arrested on corruption charges and accused of using "Mafia-like" intimidation methods to secure municipal contracts.
