    An Italian court has ruled that a 13-year-old boy be removed from his mother’s custody due to an alleged “personality disorder” linked to having “almost exclusively female role models”. Venice’s Court for Minors said the boy “tries in every way to show that he is different” and described his attitude as “effeminate in a provocative way”, according to local paper Mattino Padova. A social services report said the child from Padua, northern Italy, suffered a “personality disorder” and argued that he has difficulty forming relationships due to dependence on his mother. It also detailed an incident in which the boy...

The country has been on the frontline of migrant arrivals from across the Mediterranean, and in recent years has struggled to provide accommodation for the thousands of newcomers. "We have saved many lives but we cannot accept rule-breaking. We need to speed up deportations," Foreign Minister Angelino Alfano, the country's former interior minister, said in an interview with La Stampa daily. He was "working to tie up agreements which will reduce arrivals...

    Italy will seek to deport more migrants who have no right to be in the country and will open new detention centers to hold them before their expulsion, according to a written directive and a ministry source. Police chief Franco Gabrielli sent a two-page directive to stations across the country on Friday ordering them to increase efforts to identify and deport migrants a week after Berlin Christmas market attacker Anis Amri was shot dead near Milan. The directive, seen by Reuters, says police should take "extraordinary action" before the "growing migratory pressure in an international context marked by instability and...

    Image from the sun.co.uk: The pistol used by the German truck attack Jihadi looks a lot like a Walther. But it is a clone, probably made by Erma Werke.  The Erma 552S is nearly identical, but without markings, it is not certain. There is also an Erma RX-22, which has a shorter extractor, a longer grip, longer slide and barrel, and an eight round magazine. Clones of the Erma 552S were made and sold by Iver Johnson as the TP22. I have had a couple of them, and they have a reputation for reliability and accuracy. The sights are fixed,...

    Allied troops and ISIS are set to battle for a collapsing dam that would spew nearly 600 times the water of the River Thames onto Mosul if it breaches. Engineers from an Italian company have been tasked with fixing the Mosul Dam's foundations to stop more than 11 trillion litres of water (11.11billion cubic metres) from flooding Mosul. Experts are warning their work could be in vain, and should the catastrophe happen, it is estimated 1.5million people could be killed by the floods in an impact described as 'worse than a nuclear bomb'. Waves of up to 45ft would be...

    A volcanic field off the shore of Sicily, near Naples, has become active, scientists report. The Campi Flegrei volcano is much larger than nearby Mt. Vesuvius, the volcano whose eruption destroyed the ancient city of Pompei. An eruption of this “supervolcano” could endanger much of Europe. News of the volcanic activity was made public less than a week after the blood of St. Januarius failed to liquefy when displayed in the Naples cathedral.

    The Italian name for the caldera — Campi Flegrei, or “burning fields”— is apt. The 7.5-mile-wide cauldron is the collapsed top of an ancient volcano, formed when the magma within finally blew. Though half of it is obscured beneath the crystal blue waters of the Mediterranean, the other half is studded with cinder cones and calderas from smaller eruptions. And the whole area seethes with hydrothermal activity: Sulfuric acid spews from active fumaroles; geysers spout water and steam and the ground froths with boiling mud; and earthquake swarms shudder through the region, 125 miles south of Rome. And things seem...

    Panettone is an Italian cake filled with raisins and sultanas, and is a typical Christmas treat. But the seemingly harmless dessert has led to backlash after some vegan activists claimed a famous cake-maker was mocking the plant-based diet. It’s all because of a TV advert created by Motta, a company which has been churning out panettone since 1919 and intended to celebrate Christmas culinary traditions in its festive ad campaign. The 30-second clip shows the preparation of the typical cake, and as eggs are cracked and dough kneaded, the voiceover says:“To make our panettone, we could have used tofu, papaya,...

But in ten schools, an unwelcome entry made the top ten. Several secondary schools included Mein Kampf, the manifesto of Nazi leader Adolf Hitler, in their top ten lists. Partly autobiographical, Mein Kampf — which means “My Struggle” — outlines Hitler’s ideology that formed the basis for Nazism. Written in 1924, it details his anti-Semitism which led to the Holocaust in which about six million Jews were murdered at the hands of...

    Europe was rocked again last night after the latest populist surge against Brussels. The Italian prime minister was swept from power after calling a referendum on constitutional reforms, which became a vote on confidence in his government. Matteo Renzi resigned shortly after exit polls indicated a clear defeat, saying: 'I accept all responsibility for this loss. I'll say it out loud.' The result is a further landmark victory for populist movements, following Britain's vote for Brexit and Donald Trump's election win in the US. Mr Renzi's opponent Beppe Grillo had urged voters to 'go with your gut not your brain'...

The single currency dropped to $1.0577 in thin trade, after starting around $1.0645 earlier. The dollar was underpinned by expectations of a U.S. rate rise this month, and even held its ground on the safe-haven yen at 113.20.

    There is a direct correlation between the number of immigrants entering the country and the rise in the crime rate, according to a report published Wednesday by the Italian daily, Il Giornale. In its front page report titled “More Immigrants = More Crime,” the newspaper cited results from a recent study conducted by the Confcommercio group on the statistical connection between crime and immigration. The report found that in a determined area, if the number of immigrants increases by 1 percent, the crime rate in the same area goes up by 0.4 percent. Moreover, the study revealed that among Italian...

    The Pope should welcome them into the Vatican and give them a church to pray in. After all, he just said: “We see, for example, how quickly those among us with the status of a stranger, an immigrant, or a refugee, become a threat, take on the status of an enemy. An enemy because they come from a distant country or have different customs. An enemy because of the color of their skin, their language or their social class. An enemy because they think differently or even have a different faith.” The Pope doesn’t want to be thought of us...

    Donald Trump has yet to arrange to speak with Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven, despite the Swedish leader sending him a congratulatory letter and the US President-elect already calling Denmark’s Prime Minister Lars Lřkke Rasmussen. “We have sent a letter of congratulations of course, and then the Government Offices made contact with the (US) transition team,” Löfven explained in comments reported by Swedish news agency TT. Trump’s transition team has released a list of the heads of government and top politicians he has spoken with. The 29 names include European leaders like Italian PM Matteo Renzi, British PM Theresa May,...

    Do I remember it? We were in it! It was before the Arno burst its banks and drowned Florence, but it had been raining hard and continuously for many days. Having "done" Firenze, we were driving south at 6:00 A.M., out of Sienna, headed for Rome to rendezvous with our friend. The autostrada was not completed, so we were on the local road, cutting through the hillsides. The road went down the hillside, made a hairpin bend, and cut up the other side of the ridge. I slowed for the curve but didn't realize it was under several inches of...

    Matteo Salvini, the leader of Italy's anti-immigrant Northern League, said on Saturday he would run for prime minister at the next election as the country nears a referendum that could unseat the government.

Salvini, 43, led a rally against the reform on Saturday in Florence, traditionally a centre-left city where Renzi was mayor before becoming prime minister. Speaking to an estimated 10,000 people in the central Santa Croce square, Salvini announced his candidacy...
