    Customers shopping at Diesel's opening of a real knock-off store on Canal Street during NY Fashion Week. Photo: Ann Presley/AFP Diesel is ditching the catwalk to masquerade as knock-off merchants this Fashion Week, purporting to be a New York fake goods store only to flog customers the real thing. It's a clever gimmick for the 40-year-old Italian label, which is using the fall/winter 2018 edition of New York's twice-yearly style fest to open a pop-up shop on Canal Street in Chinatown, the heart of knock-off city in the US financial capital.   Sweatshirts and T-shirts are stamped "Deisel" -- making the ruse believable. Hoodies cost $60, jeans $70 -- again believably fake. Except these clothes are limited-range, designer goods.   "We have so many counterfeit products all over the world I thought, 'Why can't we play with this problem that we have?'" Diesel founder Renzo Rosso told AFP, saying he believes that more than a million counterfeit Diesel goods are sold annually around the world.   "We created a fake product, a fake name, and we came to the counterfeit district."   The store opened under the radar last week and hundreds of customers have alr

    A Ryanair plane at Rome's Ciampino airport. Photo: Alberto Pizzoli/AFP Work stoppages in Italy by Ryanair employees and air traffic controllers caused minimal disruption on Saturday. Ryanair workers -- not including pilots -- staged a four-hour strike over their exclusion from contract negotiations with the Ireland-based budget airline, which is in talks with the pilots' union ANPAC.   Personnel of Ryanair rivals Blue Panorama and Vueling also struck on Saturday. Blue Panorama workers stayed away for four hours, while air traffic controllers and Vueling employees launched an eight-hour strike.   None of the three airlines reported flight cancellations Saturday at Italy's main airports, and their websites reflected minimal disruption.   The three unions representing Ryanair workers -- Cgil, Cisl and Uil -- have called for "serious negotiations" on wages, contracts and guarantees for "all categories of personnel" in Italy.   Ryanair, contacted by AFP on Friday, refused to comment on "rumours and speculation."   Ryanair suffered a turbulent end to 2017, forced to cancel 20,000 flights through to March 2018, mainly because of botched holiday sche

    People take part in an anti-racism demonstration in the central Italian town of Macerata on February 10th, 2018 Photo: AFP Thousands of anti-fascist demonstrators rallied in the central Italian town of Macerata on Saturday a week after a far-right gunmen shot and wounded six Africans in a racially-motivated attack. Gathered in the town centre on a freezing but sunny afternoon, the protesters turned out following a call by NGOs, anti-fascist organisations, unions and several leftwing political groups. "If there's unemployment, blame the government, not the migrants," they chanted. With tensions high in this normally sleepy town of 43,000 people, shops were shuttered early and schools closed for the day, an AFP correspondent said. "The atmosphere is tense in Italy at the moment and in recent years we have allowed the right to flourish. I have always demonstrated but now we need to do so more than ever," said Mafalda Quartu, a retiree from Florence. The town hit the headlines on February 3rd when Luca Traini, 28, allegedly carried out a two-hour shooting attack from his car in which he shot at around a dozen African migrants, wounding five men and a woman.

    Flavio Briatore. File photo: AFP Flamboyant Italian tycoon and former boss of the Benetton and Renault F1 racing teams Flavio Briatore was Saturday sentenced on appeal to 18 months in jail for tax evasion in connection with his luxury yacht, press reports said. Briatore, whose multi-million-dollar superyacht "Force Blue" was seized in 2010, had his sentence reduced from 23 months, despite prosecutors asking for a four-year sentence. His lawyers said they would again appeal. The 63-metre yacht is registered in the Cayman Islands. Investigators contest Briatore's claims that he does not own it but merelyrents it from a company registered in the Virgin Islands. They said he was the owner of the company -- and by extension -- owner of the yacht. Briatore was convicted of not paying 3.6 million euros of VAT on the yacht's value and dodging 800,000 euros of fuel duties between 2006 and 2010. Police say according to EU regulations, yachts registered outside the European Union may only avoid paying duty if they leave EU waters within eight hours of refuelling.

    Far-right protesters salute as they face off with police in Macerata. Photo: Tiziana Fabi/AFP Italy's President Sergio Mattarella warned on Friday against the "grave risks of extreme nationalism" as the country was gripped by high racial tensions ahead of next month's elections. The president was speaking on the eve of Remembrance Day, which commemorates gruesome massacres carried out between 1943 and 1945 on Italy's north-eastern border. "Remembrance day marks an agonising chapter for our country [...] a tragedy caused by a calculated initiative to purge on an ethnic and nationalist basis," he said. "The massacres, violence and suffering endured [...] cannot be forgotten, minimized or suppressed."

    The British government announced on Thursday that it would lift a ban on citizens voting in UK elections if they had lived longer than 15 years outside the country. The government statement said that UK citizens would now be able to vote in domestic elections regardless of how long they had been abroad, a rule change which will give millions of people living overseas the right to register to vote. The 15-year time limit proved to be a constant source of frustration among British expats, particularly during the referendum on EU membership, when long-term expats felt like they were robbed of a voice. “Participation in our democracy is a fundamental part of being British, no matter how far you have travelled from the UK,” Minister for the Constitution Chloe Smith. “It is right that we should remove the 15-year time limit on voting rights of British citizens living overseas and allow those who previously lived in the UK the chance to participate in our democracy.” "Expats retain strong links with the United Kingdom: they may have family here, and indeed they may plan to return here in the future. Modern technology and cheaper air travel has transformed the ability of

    The Sicilian mafia is a powerful organized crime syndicate known across the globe, but its origins are murky. A surge in demand for citrus fruits in the 1800s could provide clues as to how it first emerged. Economic lecturers Alessia Isopi and Arcangelo explain. The Sicilian mafia is arguably one of the most famous – or infamous – institutions in the Western world. After its first appearance in Sicily in the 1870s it soon infiltrated the economic and political spheres of Italy and the US and has, at times, been considered a serious threat to the rule of law in both countries. But despite the fact that we’ve seen plenty of evidence of mafia activity, both in real life and on screen over the past 140 years, the reasons behind its emergence are still obscure. While some analysis by academics has focused on weak institutions, predation and the poor state enforcement of property rights, others – particularly when it comes to the Sicilian mafia – have suggested that the legacy of feudalism was an important driver, along with the development of latifundism (a system according to which agriculture is dominated by large estates) and a loss of social capital and public trust

    Far-right demonstrators clash with anti-riot police in Macerata. Photo: Tiziana Fabi/AFP Police clashed with extreme-right protesters on Thursday evening in the central Italian town of Macerata, where tension is currently high following a shooting attack by a far-right sympathizer who targeted dark-skinned foreigners. The suspect has said he chose to carry out the attack after hearing that a local 18-year-old woman’s dismembered body had been found by police, and that a Nigerian man had been arrested in connection with her death. Around 40 people reportedly participated in the unauthorized protest on Thursday evening, which was organized by the extreme-right Forza Nuova party. Counter-demonstrators chanted slogans including "we are all anti-fascists". READ ALSO: Italy's centre-left warns of 'return of fascism' amid wave of support for far-right shooter When the Forza Nuova supporters tried to enter the town’s central square, they clashed with riot police, with some officers hitting protesters with truncheons, Rai News reported.

    M5S leader Luigi Di Maio delivers a speech during the presentation of the movement's parliamentary candidates. Photo: Tiziana Fabi/AFP Italy's Five Star Movement (M5S), the country's most popular party according to polls, has been accused of plagiarizing a variety of sources in its programme for the March general election. Online newspaper Il Post reported on Wednesday that 11 of the programme’s 20 chapters included material apparently plagiarized from other sources. A full comparison of the M5S manifesto and the unattributed sources can be found on the website in Italian. These sources included articles, parliamentary papers, scientific studies, legal manuals, and even statements made by rival politicians. According to Il Post, the M5S manifesto included material plagiarized from the Wikipedia pages for eco-museums, the ministry for communications, and a government agency responsible for managing EU farming funds, while in other places definitions were identical to those found in legal manuals. Other sections were identical to papers from the European Commission and the Italian parliament, reports from private and public think tanks, and a National Geographic re
