    Background: SYNOPSIS: EACH DAY...OUTSIDE OF ROME'S HALL OF RECORDS...A DOZEN OR SO M???N EARN THEIR LIVING ... BY HELPING PEOPLE FILL OUT FORMS. FORMS ARE THE BACKBONE OF ITALIAN BUREAUCRACY... WITHOUT FORMS...THE ITALIAN BUREAUCRATS WOULD BE LOST.??? SO FOR A SMALL PRIO???...TEN CENTS OR T???NTY CENTS...THESE MEN HELP THE CITIZEN BEGIN HIS ADVENTURE IN THE ITALIAN PAPERWORK JUNGLE.

    IT IS ALWAYS A STRUGGLE. THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE PILE INTO THE HALL OF RECORDS AND OTHER AGENCIES EVERY DAY...TO GET VARIOUS CERTIFICATES...ON THEIR PENSIONS...OR SIMPLY TO PAY UTILITY BILLS. FOR THOSE WHO DO??? HAVE ???...THERE ARE AVAILABLE IN RO??? THOUSAND OF AGENTS AND CONSULTANTS WHO HAVE ???
    THERE ARE ??? THOUSAND SEPARATE ??? AGENCIES, ??? COMMISSIONS ARE WHAT HAVE YOUR IN ITALY. MANY OF TH???...NINE THOUSAND TO BE ???ACT ...HAVE BEEN D??? USELES???... THEY SERVE NO PURP??? AT ALL... EXCEPT MAYBE TO HELP KEEP THE UN??? RATT DOWN. FOR EXAMPLE...THERE IS THE WELFARE AGENCY FOR THE VETERANS OF THE GARIBALDI ??? CAMPAIGN. NOW THIS GARIBALDI GANRAION ENDED MORE THAN A CENTURY AGO...ITS HEROES HAVEN'T NEEDED WELFARE FOR YEARS. YET THE AGENCY CONTINUES TO EXIST...NO ONE KNOWS PRECISELY WHY. THEN THERE'S THE COMMISSION TO AID VICTIMS OF THE ERUPTION OF MOUNT VESUVIUS. BUT THERE ARE VERY TEN OF THESE VICTIMS AROUND...THE LAST SERIOUS ERUPTION OF VESUVIUS WAS IN ??? 1906
    TAKE THE AGENCY FOR SICILIAN AQUADUCTS...WHICH ARE AS IMPORTANT TO THE PEOPLE OF SICILY AS THEY WERE TO THE ANCIENT ROMANS. ??? ADMINISTERING AQUADUCTS IS NOT THE MOST DIFFICULT JOB IN THE WORLD. BUT THE AGENCY MANAGES TO SPEND LOTS OF MONEY...MOSTLY ON SALARIES...AND IT GOES MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN THE RED ??? EACH YEAR.

    SIXTEEN YEARS AGO...A BUREAU WAS SET UP TO ABOLISH ALL THE USELESS BUREAUS. N??? NOT ??? NGLY...FEW PEOPLE WERE ASSIGNED TO IT...AND PROGRESS HAS BEEN SLOW. IT DID MANAGE TO GET RID OF BUREAUS HAVING TO DO WITH ETHIOPIAN COTTON AND MALARIA IN VENICE...BUT HASN'T HAD NUCH LUCK WITH THE AGENCY FOR WAR ORPHANS...EVEN THOUGH THE YOUNGEOT ORPHAN IS NOW ABOUT TWENTY SEVEN YEARS OLD AND OUGHT TO BE ABLE TO TAKE CARE OF HIMSELF
