'Wheeler-dealer' Carboni dies at 90

Involved in bankruptcy of God's Banker Roberto Calvi

(ANSA) - ROME, JAN 24 - Italian 'wheeler-dealer' par excellence Flavio Carboni, at the centre of many legal, political and Vatican mysteries including the death of God's Banker Roberto Calvi in 1982, has died at the age of 90 in Rome, his family said Monday.
    Carboni was involved in the bankruptcy of Calvi's Banco Ambrosiano, which led to the banker ending up hanged under London's Blackfriar's Bridge in what many believe was a Mafia vendetta.
    In more recent times he was a protagonist of the P3 influence peddling scandal.
    Carboni was originally from Torralba near Sassari in Sardinia.
