Former Italian deputy prime minister Gianfranco Fini (R), now in opposition, consoles Marisa Grasso, widow of slain Italian police officer Filippo Raciti, during Raciti's funeral in Catania February 5, 2007. A soccer-mad nation which only seven months ago celebrated a World Cup victory was stunned by the outcome of riots at a derby between rival Sicilian teams Catania and Palermo on Friday, in which the policeman died and over 70 people were injured.
