Economy min warns uncertainty threatens Italy's recovery

The Milan stock exchange registered big losses on Wednesday amid fears Premier Enrico Letta's grand-coalition government is in danger of collapsing.
Silvio Berlusconi's centre-right People of Freedom (PdL) party is threatening to pull its support and sink the executive if its alliance partner, the centre-left Democratic Party (PD), votes for the ex-premier to be stripped of his Senate seat after a tax-fraud conviction.
"The process of recovery is taking place and we are coming out of the recession phase," Saccomanni told a press conference at the G20 summit in St Petersburg.
"The political uncertainty is a negative factor, in terms of the return of confidence in the capacity for economic growth".
