Fazio becomes butt of Tremonti's jokes

Antonio Fazio became the butt of jokes from new economy minister Giulio Tremonti recently, when he poked fun at Fazio and imitated his voice.

"If you don't go away, I'll have you roughed up a bit," Tremonti told reporters at the recent meetings of the Group of Seven and the International Monetary Fund in Washington, imitating the voice of the central bank chief who is under pressure to step down over allegations he was biased in bank takeover battles that he was supposed to oversee.
