There has been already a lot written about Prodi’s government collapse and ressurection elsewhere. One thing that hasn’t let me get over it easily was the fact that I found the peace mission in Afghanistan and the extension of the Vicenza US military base reasons enough for the government to sink…Perhaps Vicenza:)
After talking to a friend (thanks Andrea) and a bit of research, I found an article published by the Center for Security Studies at the ETH Zurich: “Vatican, not Afghanistan, sunk Prodi”. If it perhaps smells a bit of conspiracy theory, it still provides a very credible and verifiable background to what really happened. The same-sex marriages have really been THE debate in Italy for the recent months (see here an article from Corriere della Sera).
Enjoy the reading.
