Italy struggles to turn page on corruption

MILAN, Italy, May 23 (Reuters) – They usually met in Milan
although on Wednesdays they lunched in Rome. But for the seven
men arrested on suspicion of corruption, the menu was always the
same, prosecutors said: alleged bribes to obtain building
contracts for Italy’s Expo 2015 world fair.

Milan prosecutors are investigating whether the group of
former politicians and entrepreneurs rigged contracts for Expo
and other public tenders, including a 67 million euro contract
to build facilities for next year’s Universal Exhibition,
according to a copy of the arrest warrant seen by Reuters.
