The Italian government, led by Romano Prodi, has challenged a tax on yachts
introduced by Sardinia’s governor Renato Soru.
Soru, the billionaire founder of Tiscali and now regional politician, made
the decision to tax rich visitors who visit Sardinia on yachts or own holiday
villas, the Independent reports.
Prodi, however, has opposed the tax because he argues that it is
unconstitutional and discriminatory, and could encourage other regions to raise
revenue locally and clash with the plans of central government.
Report argues that the government must change the way it makes tax and budget decisions
