An Italian politician who spent 27 years in total anonymity to hide from the mafia has revealed her face for the first time
Piera Aiello has lived under a false identity since 1991 after her husband, the son of a mafia boss, was killed by rivals. She was elected to the Italian parliament earlier this year while campaigning anonymously, and gained the name 'the faceless candidate.'
Sunday's vote has returned a hung parliament, with the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement the biggest single party.
Italy will hold a general election on March 4, an event that some have identified as one of the biggest political risks for markets in 2018.
