Ferragamo CEO sees improved growth outlook in H2, upbeat on China

MILAN, June 22 (Reuters) – Italian luxury leather goods
maker Salvatore Ferragamo expects group results to
improve in the second half of 2014 from the first six months on
the back of strong demand in China and in global travel retail,
its chief executive said on Sunday.

Ferragamo, whose shoes were loved by Hollywood film stars
such as Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn, plans to add between
10 and 20 shops to its current network this year, four of them
in new large Chinese cities, Michele Norsa said.

South Europe’s families offer short-term fix to pensions crisis

MADRID/MILAN, May 28 (Reuters) – When Angel Gomez and Maria
Luisa Fernandez retired a decade ago, they imagined spending
their pensions largely on restaurant meals, holidays and toys
for the grandkids. Today, their retirement money helps to
support five families.

The Spanish couple, like other relatively prosperous
pensioners across southern Europe, are providing an informal
safety net which has helped many in the younger generation to
avoid widespread poverty despite record-high unemployment.
