Italian tax evasion has new (female) champion

Tax evasion is infamous in Italy. Indeed, it is an integral part of the country’s economic troubles. However, in an imaginary ranking of the worst Italian offenders, we have probably a winner, and she is a woman: Mrs Angiola Armellini.

Mrs Armellini is the daughter of a famous real estate magnate. According to the Italian Authorities, she is the de facto owner of 1,243 real estate properties concentrated in and around Rome. She also reportedly hid money and other valuables, for a total amount of more than 2 billion euros.

Mrs Armellini on paper is a resident of Luxembourg, but actually she lives in Rome. She is now under investigation, but no warrant of arrest was issued.
