Prodi government falls

Italian coalition governments can be quite tricky... even for a Dossettian "grown-up Catholic" (cattolico adulto) such as Romano Prodi. The fact that he could not control the anticlerical radicals within his coalition in the last few months certainly did not help him in the pacification of the restless slim majority he had in the upper house of the Italian Parliament thanks to small Catholic-oriented parties.
