Marino quit affair a 'farce' says Vatican daily (2)

Rome 'rarely exposed to similar' says L'Osservatore Romano

(ANSA) - Vatican City, October 30 - Vatican daily L'Osservatore Romano said Friday the on-off resignation saga of Rome Mayor Ignazio Marino "is taking on the guise of a farce".
    It said "beyond all judgement there remains the damage, also of image, wreaked on a city accustomed in its history to see all manner of things, but rarely exposed to similar affairs". Marino tendered his resignation over an expenses scandal October 12 and withdrew the resignation October 29 despite the opposition of his own Democratic Party, which is now teaming up with opposition councillors to bring him down.
