Weekly prayer focus on Italy
There was a time when the problems of the Italian south seemed urgent not just for Italy but for all of Europe. Then new members with even poorer regions joined the European Union and the issue slipped off the agenda in Brussels and Rome.
Yet the south still accounts for a third of Italy’s population, half its unemployment, and an immeasurable share of organised crime.
