A shadow of a voter is seen on a poster of Uncle Sam reading "Come to vote in California" during the "American elections for non Americans" in the village of La California, in the Livorno region of Tuscany on October 26, 2008. The event, organised ten days ahead the US official elections, by La California and Italian photographer Olivero Toscani, best-known for his controversial advertising campaigns for Italian brand Benetton, wishes to raise the question: "As the United States of America is the world’s greatest power, affecting and determining the fate of the planet: why shouldn’t we have the chance to vote for their-our President too?". Apart from Barack Obama and John Mc Cain, voters could choose between local candidates for US President and results from the "elections" will be brought to the US consulate in Florence.
