Divisions plague united Italy

As country celebrates 150 years of unification, divisions remain between north and south.


    As Italy prepares to celebrate 150 years of its unification, divisions between the wealthy north and the poorer south remain.

    Northern League members of the government claim the north props up the south.

    Meanwhile in the south, jobs are scarce and the mafia is strong, while money laundering and corruption diverts much needed cash from the legal economy.
