Italy referendums: Lombardy and Veneto 'back greater autonomy'

For every church in Rome, there's a bank in Milan!

Fun fact Canada is older than Italy.

North Italy is rich. The south is poor. The north does not want to subsidies the south. I wonder when the Germans will begin to feel this way and leave the EU.

Italy is a fascinating land. Bankers in the north: mafiosi in the south.

Very good comment Neverfail. Hahaha. I guess the northerners are tired of the problems the southerners are giving them. Note that the south was once controlled by the Muslims. Maybe they left some aspects of their culture behind.
