Bella figura or not as the case may be 

If you want to get some handle on the sensational banking corruption racking Italy (courtesy not least of close colleagues of New Labours good friend Berlusconi) take a look at this piece by 'Gilgamesh' in the European Tribune. You wont understand what is happening from the BBC reports unless you read this. Also enlightening in the context of the Dutch bank ABN taking over Banca Antonveneta.

News report will also be trumpeting that Berlusconi has been 'acquitted' of certain charges. Well up to a point Lord Copper. It was very helpful that Italy has in effect made white-collar crime legal, according to this note.
