The histrionic threat by Valentino Castellani, organiser of the Turin 2006 Winter Olympics, to resign yesterday (as reported on this site) has been withdrawn; how surprising!
Following a meeting with the IOC president, Jacques Rogge, and Italian Premier Silvio Berlusconi; Castellani's ego was duly mollified.
The division of powers between himself and Mario Pescante, the government appointed games supervisor, had been clarified to his satisfaction.
Castellani, a former mayor of Turin, said:
"..a page had been turned.." and he would remain head of organising committee through the games in February 2006.
What a relief!
