An Italian politician proposed to his girlfriend in the middle of a parliamentary debate on Thursday as she watched on from the public gallery above.
Flavio Di Muro, 33, a member of the League party, had been participating in a debate on post-earthquake reconstruction when he produced a ring from beneath his seat and popped the question to his partner, Elisa De Leo.
Though one of his colleagues barely looked up from his phone to acknowledge the proposal, two MPs at his side jumped to their feet and applauded.
In footage from the debate, Mr Di Muro is seen standing as he addresses the Chamber of Deputies in Rome. He said: 'This is not a day like any other for me, it's a different day, it's a special day.'
