Italian students and teachers have staged another day of demonstrations against government reforms.
Hundreds have taken to the streets of Rome for the second day in a row.
The government maintains reform is needed to make universities more cost-effective, but protesters say the system will be worse.
One demonstrator said: “People like me will no longer exist. Researchers with a permanent contract will disappear, replaced by people hired on short-term contracts. Job precariousness will continue.”
Yesterday students attacked the Senate, and students held sit-ins at universities in other main centres.
