The wife of the President of Italy duets with the Pope?
Her name is Clio Maria Bittoni, a woman who had a career in law before her husband became President.

The State Visit is postponed to this fall due to the health condition of President Napolitano.Not that there is anything wrong at present but considering his age he's overactice.Reason was given for the delay and that is the President wishes to follow the European summit next week.As we all know Italy is in a crisis and that takes its toll on President Napolitano.He will be 87 next week.Oh,ok...

Thank you for the update Lucien. While I know that his role is more ceremonial than the Prime Minister's it is understandable that at his age the President needs to consider his health.
