Italy's prime minister-elect Silvio Berlusconi smiles during the first voting session to choose a speaker at the lower chamber of parliament in Rome April 29, 2008. Berlusconi threatened on Tuesday to re-nationalise Alitalia if the European Commission continued to "whine" about a government loan to keep the ailing airline afloat.
