Education minister says start of school year not at risk

(ANSA) - Rome, July 24 - Italy's Education Minister Francesco Profumo said on Tuesday that the coming school year will "not be at risk", despite warnings given by the leader of Italy's association of provincial governments following the announcement of spending cuts. Profumo is set to meet with provincial union president, Giuseppe Castiglione, on Wednesday for a "previously planned appointment". Premier Mario Monti's emergency government recently passed a decree to cut spending by 26 billion euros over the next three years and it said on Friday that will dissolve 64 of Italy's 107 provincial governments, assigning their functions to regional authorities, to save money. photo: Education Minister Francesco Profumo
