Italy decides (part 2)

In the second part of Europe Now, former Italian Education Minister and current MEP Luigi Berlinguer tells Christophe Robeet how Italy’s students are weathering the crisis. Next, we travel to Milan for a look at how Italian craftsmanship is faring, and where MEP Mario Mauro shows us around the country’s financial centre. We also look at new anti-mafia initiatives and why the Vatican finally has to pay taxes after centuries of avoiding them.
