Berlusconi faces his first real test

The British daily comments on Silvio Berlusconi's efforts to tackle the rubbish debacle in Naples: "The Italian Prime Minister, Silvio Berlusconi, faces the first real test of his new government after his demand for a speedy end to Naples's interminable rubbish wars was greeted at the weekend with violent clashes and a call to arms by residents of the areas chosen for new dumps. ...
