Rome Mayor Gianni Alemanno meets reporters in Rome, Monday, May 27, 2013. Projections indicate that Silvio Berlusconi's candidate in Rome's mayoral elections appears headed for a runoff in balloting that saw a low turnout. Rome was the only big city up for grabs among some 500 towns in elections Sunday and Monday.
