We were on a train from Livorno to Pisa in 1983. The crew had some sort of disagreement and went on strike and stopped the train on a siding. We sat there for about 30 minutes and they were standing outside arguing with who appeared to be the conductor. After much hand gesturing they got back aboard and off we went again to Pisa. It was an interesting contrast to the old story about Mussolini being a tyrant but at least he got the trains to run on time.
