Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
This is just off the cuff but as I recall the nuclear plant in Italy was closed through a national referendum before it was fully operative in the 80's. However Italy had always had a substantial share in the superphoenix and perhaps other French ventures.

The irony was that Italy was working in a nuclear plant just across the border all the time.

There have been talks of bringing the issue up again after this 20-odd year moratorium.
