Italy president calls for govt reliability
'Good of Italy, Europe depends on it' says Napolitano21 September, 20:05
Napolitano said he was quoting a personal letter addressed to him by world-renowned sociologist Ralph Dahrendorf in 1998, adding that the concepts are as relevant today as they were back then. Dahrendorf's 1998 "warning" to Italy, or better still his "concern" that there could be a return to "the familiar context of a crisis", still holds true today, Napolitano said. He added that worries that "stability" could "crack" were relevant today, citing the British-German expert.
