Luca Cordero di Montezemolo, a man waiting for a whistle, is unabashed embodiment of Italy future and Italy past. "I'm a full-of-contradictions kind of guy," di Montezemolo mused one recent morning in the frazzling countdown for the 1990 World Cup. He directs preparations with a blend of high-tech drive and old-world patience, wheedling harmony from a nation of brilliant but obstinate soloists.

Luca Cordero di Montezemolo, who heads the Organizing Committee of the World Cup, has criticized delays in updating Naples' San Paolo soccer stadium and has suggested that the arena may not be ready when the tournament opens in June. Montezemolo was especially critical of external infrastructures of the 80,000-seat arena, including parking areas and the media center. "The external part of the stadium is in disastrous condition," he said in published reports today.

Fiat may tap Agnelli family member John Elkann as chairman as it revives a plan to spin off the auto-making division, according to people familiar with the matter. Fiat is set to name Elkann, 34, to the top post on Tuesday, according to two people with knowledge of the company's plans, who asked not to be identified because it has not been announced. Chairman Luca Cordero di Montezemolo stepped down earlier Tuesday and will remain a Fiat director, Fiat said. Elkann, the grandson of former Chairman Giovanni Agnelli, will take over as Turin-based Fiat reorganizes its automotive and truckmaking businesses, said the people.

The Monterey Peninsula and Modena, Italy, might be oceans apart, but they will have something very much in common this weekend--Ferraris. Ferrari, celebrating its 45th anniversary in Modena, will be the featured car in the Monterey historic auto races Friday through Sunday at Laguna Seca Raceway. More than 1,000 Ferrari owners will have their cars at the event, and more than 80 vehicles carrying the prancing horse logo will race. In all, 335 vintage race cars will compete in 14 races over the 2.

LONDON - First, Silvio Berlusconi, who was driven from power last year by Italy's economic woes and his own scandals, said he wanted back his old job as prime minister. Then Mario Monti, an appointed technocrat who succeeded him at the head of an unelected government, kept the nation guessing for weeks before suddenly declaring that he would dive into politics and seek to lead the next government. They're only part of a perplexing lineup of political candidates voters will face in February's elections as political parties begin a frantic search for coalition partners.

Any marketer who honestly believes that conspicuous consumption is out--and restraint is in--didn't make it to Beverly Hills over the weekend. There was ostentatiousness at its grandest. Three blocks of Rodeo Drive were closed so that Ferrari--the Italian maker of $100,000-plus sports cars--could display its 24-karat sheet metal to some of the wealthiest gawkers in L.A. Ferrari said it came to town to introduce its new $120,000 Spider convertible and, incidentally, to raise money for charity.

A decade ago, visitors to the Ferrari factory announced themselves in a small showroom inside an unassuming complex of low brick buildings -- hip-roofed and painted burnt orange, sturdy and traditional, like Ferrari itself. Today, the Ferrari campus looks more like Starfleet Academy than the house that Enzo built. The new wind tunnel is by architect Renzo Piano. The Luigi Sturchio-designed F1 logistics building looks like a zeppelin that has crash-landed outside the Fiorano test track.
