CALCIO under arrest

After the bitter-(sweet) elections, after the elections of the President of the Republic, after the capture of Provenzano (Mafia Boss par excellence), I thought that we had enough troubles and tensions in Italy to fill any possible emotional hole.

What next? You can start from anywhere you want... Perhaps, Universities? Corruption is endemic and pervades everywhere.

Prodi, not yet the official Prime Minister, will have to deal with a very tricky situation. Nearly everything has to be constructed from scratch. This may be good, but it will take an effort of Herculean proportions!
