Italy's Aftershock

Italy's Aftershock In April, Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi announced a sudden change of venue for next week's G8 Summit. Instead of the purpose-built luxury waterfront resort, world leaders will be staying in the barracks of Italy's Financial Police in the middle of an earthquake zone.
