the true price is the acquisition of Fantuzzi's liabilities, in particular a workforce which is virtually impossible to lay-off or fire. Labor unions in Europe are extraordinarily powerful. The Fantuzzi hourly employees will be the most expensive, by far, in the company. On the positive side, Italy is a lovely place for company management to go for periodic visits. The "brunella" vintages of the Tuscany region are excellent and go well with Florentine grilled steak.
