The mayor of Rome on Sunday said he refused to be intimidated by threats from the criminal underworld and defied calls for him to resign over a scandal which has rocked the Italian capital. Ignazio Marino had been advised by Rome’s prefect not to use his bicycle any more because of threats from “dangerous organisations” which emerged this week after an anti-mafia sweep revealed a web of dirty deals between political figures and a notorious mobster.
