Baffi d'acciaio

MASSIMO D'ALEMA, the man with the iron moustache, was once a leading light in Italy's now defunct Communist party.He abandoned communism 20 years ago but is still the most leftwing premier Italy has had since 1945.He is familiar with the dark arts of Italian political intrigue, having conspired to replace Romano Prodi..., his colleague, as premier in 1998. Critics accuse him of anti-US and anti-Israeli bias. (FT)
