A global fit of parameters allows us to pin down the Hidden Local Symmetry (HLS) effective Lagrangian, which we apply for the prediction of the leading hadronic vacuum polarization contribution to the muon g-2. The latter is dominated by the annihilation channel e+e- -> pi+pi-, for which data are available by scan (CMD-2 and SND) and ISR (KLOE-2008, KLOE-2010 and BaBar) experiments. It is well known that the different data sets are not in satisfactory agreement. In fact it is possible to fix

Among these, the accepted decay width for rho0 -> e+e- and the partial widths and phase information for the omega/phi -> pi+pi- transitions, are considered. It is then shown that, relying on this global data set, the HLS model, appropriately broken, allows to predict accurately the pion form factor up to 1.05 GeV. It is shown that the data samples provided by CMD-2, SND and KLOE-2010 behave consistently with each other and with the other considered data. Consistency problems with the KLOE-2008 and BaBar data samples are substantiated. "All data" global fits are investigated by applying reweighting the conflicting data sets. Constraining to our best fit, the broken HLS model yields a_mu(th) = (11659169.55 [+1.26 -0.59]_phi +[+0.00 -2.00]_tau +/- 5.21_(th))~10**-10 associated with a very good global fit probability. Correspondingly, we find that Delta a_mu=a_mu (exp)- a_mu (th) exhibits a significance ranging between 4.7 and 4.9 sigma.
