    Background: NEW YORK, USA

    President Ronald Reagan and film star Sophia Loren were among the thousands celebrating Columbus Day in New York on October 8. The Italian explorer reached the New World in 1492; in celebration, 50,000 people watched the 40th annual New York parade. Among them were vice-President George Bush, President Reagan's running mate in next month's elections, along with Democratic party candidate Walter Mondale and vice-president hopeful Geraldine Ferraro, who stole a march on her political rivals by joining 1500 people in another parade on October 7 in Newark, New Jersey. Ferraro is of Italian descent -- and another famous Italian attracted the crowd's attention too. Sophia Loren, the official Marshal of the parade, was accompanied by a bevy of security staff as she joined the New Yorkers on a day when Italian-Americans enjoyed the limelight. But with the Presidential elections due next month, this year's parade had a distinctly political flavour. Even Uncle Sam was wearing his political colours on his sleeve.
