San Giorgio man arrested


 The Head of Public Works in Italy, Angelo Balducci has been arrested following enquiries into corruption in the awarding of building contracts for the G8 meeting which was to take place in Sardegna last year but subsequently moved to Aquila following the earthquake.

Mr Balducci was born in San Giorgio in 1948. His family later moved to Rome. He became a civil engineer and has worked in many parts of Italy. He has maintained family connections in the area. He has recently bought and is restoring a large farm house, perhaps his birthplace, near San Giorgio.

His father Elio, a self taught artist, created a sculpture of George and the Dragon and it is now at the entrance to the main street.
