Wormtongue Appointed in Italy
Giuliano Amato, arriving in Rome to open a new exhibition he has curated on Niccolo' Machiavelli, has expressed his satisfaction at the appointment of Enrico Letta, stand-in leader of the Democratic Party after Pierluigi Bersani's resignation, as Prime Minister-elect.
Letta requires a vote of confidence in both Houses of Parliament to confirm his administration.
'Meglio un morto in casa che un Pisano all'uscio' as they say in Florence.
