De ontdekking van Italië

On September 24, 1973, an Ojibwe Indian Chief from California, dressed in full regalia, landed in Rome and claimed possession of Italy "by right of discovery", just as Christopher Columbus had claimed America nearly 500 years earlier. "I proclaim this day the day of discovery of Italy", he said.
