OK, that was a bit of a sensational headline... but it looks like Piaggio, through their CEO Roberto Colaninno, is going to take a stake in the troubled airline Alitalia (in case you want to know what Alitalia stands for, it means Always Late In Takeoff And Late In Arrival ROFL Smiley).

Oh well, there's the next management fad, Harley buys Agusta, Piaggio buys Alitalia. What's next? Derbi buys Microsoft?

The investors include Roberto Colaninno, the chairman of motorcycle maker Piaggio who is tapped to be the chairman of the new Alitalia. (AP Photo/Uwe Lein, File)
