Last-day relief: Milan’s orchestra is saved by Government cheque, two years late

The state had somehow failed to pay €3 million, promised in 2013. A further subsidy of 950,000 is guaranteed for the coming year, in a vague kind of way.

With 2014 ticking out, Italy’s culture minister Dario Franceschini at last came through with the cash so the orch can play on, for now.

Seems a funny way to run a sweet shop.
