italia.it portal closed down after burning EUR 45 Million

After 3 years, the pharaonic portal to promote Italy’s tourism, italia.it, has been closed down. €45 Million have been spent on the project (yes, that’s Millions, and the currency is Euros…).

The project was launched March 16, 2004. Here is a blog with a lot of information on this scandal: http://italianscandal.wordpress.com/about/
