Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Italy never fulfilled the entry criteria for joining the euro and was likely to do so. Just as with Greece. The ECB knew it for Italy, just as they did for Greece.

This is the central damning failure of the euro and the ideas underlying it. Failures that are likely to bring about the end of the EU which will be torn apart as country after country go under and descend into some form of authoritarian control demanding border controls
