The bridge became internationally notorious in June 1982, when the body of Roberto Calvi, a former chairman of Italy's largest private bank, was found hanging from one of its arches with 5 bricks and around $14,000 in 3 different currencies in his pockets..Claims have been made that factors in Calvi's death were the Vatican Bank, Banco Ambrosiano's main shareholder; the Mafia, which may have used Banco Ambrosiano for money laundering; and the Propaganda Due or P2 clandestine Masonic Lodge..P2 was sometimes referred to as a "state within a state" or a "shadow government"..The lodge had among its members prominent journalists,members of parliament, industrialists, and military leaders—including Silvio Berlusconi, who later became Prime Minister of Italy; the Savoy pretender to the Italian throne Victor Emmanuel; and the heads of all3 Italian Intelligence services (at the time SISDE, SISMI and CESIS)..Outside Italy, P2 was also active in Uruguay, Brazil and Argentina, with Raúl Alberto Lastiri, Argentina's interim president (between July 13, 1973 and October 12, 1973) during the height of the "Dirty War" among its members. Emilio Massera, who was part of the military junta led by Jorge Rafael Videla from 1976 to 1978, José López Rega, minister of Social Welfare in Perón's government and founder of the Argentine Anticommunist Alliance ("Triple A"), and General Guillermo Suárez Mason were also Members...Somebody Call out my name as it started to rain..2 spirits dancing so strange..'t let Felix get to you, he's just got a bad case of Miami Vice..You know I would never bother you When you're getting a piece of Wood.. Miss. B, this store has never been more successful, and it's all due to Jonathan Switcher. I don't care if he puts a Rubber Glove on his Head..
