Former EUR manager indicted in Rome bus graft probe (ANSA) - Rome, November 12 - The former CEO of the company that runs the historic EUR district in Rome was indicted for alleged graft on bus contracts Tuesday.

Riccardo Mancini, ex-CEO of EUR SpA, is charged with accepting a bribe of 800,000 euros from leading bus-maker Breda Menarini to supply Rome with 45 buses.

The case is one of several involving contracts linked to former Rome mayor Gianni Alemanno, who is not accused of wrongdoing. EUR was built by Fascist dictator Benito Mussolini as a model district for the 1942 World's Fair, which was scratched because of WWII.

Many of its buildings have been backdrops for films.
