Chinese Carnival masks of Renzi, Berlusconi, Grillo seized (ANSA) - Naples, February 28 - Italian police on Friday seized Carnival masks of Premier Matteo Renzi, centre-right opposition leader Silvio Berlusconi and anti-establishment leader Beppe Grillo at Nola near Naples.

The masks were among 13,000 items imported from China by two entrepreneurs who have been cited for fraud.

The bargain-basement masks and costumes, which did not have EU quality labels denoting acceptable standards, were destined to flood the Naples market ahead of upcoming Carnival, police said.
