Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
italy is teetering on the edge...

people are struggling to keep up appearances of normality, while watching the waters recede before the economic tsunami to hit here like spain, greece and portugal.
 i have a hunch italy will be the straw that breaks the euro's back, or provokes a u-turn from the ECB.

probably a few months from now, once the election results have sunk in.
