Man jumps to death after financial woes (ANSA) - Padua, February 5 - A Padua gas-station manager jumped to his death from the 10th floor of the city hospital Wednesday after leaving a note about his financial difficulties.

Giovanni Zampieri, 55, said "the crisis has wiped the smile off my face".

Suicides have risen during Italy's longest postwar recession, from which the country is slowly emerging.
