Announcement – RSS Feed Change

Due to some technical issues relating to Blog from Italy’s RSS feed system, I’m afraid I’m going to have to start supplying ‘chopped’ RSS feeds.  Apparently some of the multimedia content, such as YouTube videos and one or two other things I do within some posts, are causing RSS feed errors.

Therefore, from tomorrow, Blog from Italy’s main RSS feed will serve excerpts from recent posts.  To read the full post, should you wish to, just visit Blog from Italy directly via your web browser.  Remember too that Blog from Italy also has a mobile device optimized version, which means it can be read via mobile phones, pocket PCs and, as I understand, Apple’s latest cult item, the iPhone.

Thanks for reading, as ever.

Is Silvio Berlusconi on His Way Out?

The question on lips around the world is whether Silvio Berlusconi will stay or will go.

Everybody, and I mean everybody, which means Italians and those from beyond Italy’s shores is uncertain.

In this post I’ve listed a series of factors at play, each of which may, or may not, contribute to Berlusconi’s downfall or longevity. As you will discover, people have good reason to be uncertain, as the matter is by no means straightforward.
