ITALY / EUROZONE : Mario Monti...Aka "Super Mario"...Profiled.

                                          BLOOMBERG/ G. VISCUSI

      Mario Monti, 68, is the economist and 'technocrat' that many in Italy and the eurozone hope and currently believe will take over the Italian government and enact required reforms.
     To some he is simply known as "Super Mario"...for personally killing a GE/Honeywell merger...and also for extracting a E495mn fine from Microsoft...when he headed an EU anti-competitive department.
     Monti is currently an adviser to Goldman Sachs.
