Italy president calls for govt reliability

(ANSA) - Rome, September 21 - Italian President Giorgio Napolitano said Friday that the euro region's third-largest economy had to maintain "a concrete degree of institutional reliability", not only for its own good, but also for Europe as a whole. Napolitano said he was quoting a personal letter addressed to him by world-renowned sociologist Ralph Dahrendorf in 1998, adding that the concepts are as relevant today as they were back then. Dahrendorf's 1998 "warning" to Italy, or better still his "concern" that there could be a return to "the familiar context of a crisis", still holds true today, Napolitano said. He added that worries that "stability" could "crack" were relevant today, citing the British-German expert.
