Its ancient culture, historic cities and fabulous food are famous throughout the world. However, a poverty gap divides the country sharply into a rich north and a poor south. Italy is also notorious as a base for organized crime. As Italy looks to the future the challenege is to persist in its fight against organized crime and to continue to support the south in its struggle against unemployment and poverty.
