Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

If the government of Italy wants to claim ownership of the national gold reserve now controlled by the country's central bank, or even to sell some of it, Bullion Star gold researcher Ronan Manly writes today, the government should inquire into how much of the gold, if any, actually exists and where it resides, since no one from Italy seems to have seen it in a long time.

Manly's commentary is headlined "Italy's Gold Enters the Political Fray, But Who Really Owns It?" and it's posted at Bullion Star here:
