The Italian oil is so real it could spark a conflict with Croatia

When former Prime Minister Romano Prodi suggested to the Italian Government to extract the national oil, it was not a joke. The oil is under the sea, in particular in the Adriatic Sea, and “dum Romae consulitur” the Croatian Government has already launched the public procedures to sell the drilling concessions.

The news from the Balkans caused outrage in Italy. It is feared that Croatia not only will steal the Italian treasure, but will also damage the Adriatic Sea and the delicate Venice Lagoon in particular by giving unrestricted access to the oil giants.
