A woman strolls in Via Condotti, a luxury shops street in Rome, Tuesday, Nov. 15, 2011. Both the center-left Democratic Party and ex-Premier Silvio Berlusconi's Peoples of Liberty party said they fully backed Italy's premier-designate Mario Monti. But investors worried that they might pull their support in the future if austerity measures proved unpalatable, undermining the success of much-needed reforms. That prospect weighed on Italy's markets, with the yield on the 10-year bonds jumping again by 0.44 of a percentage point to 7.02 percent. Last week's spike above 7 percent raised fears Italy would eventually need a bailout like Greece. (AP Photo/Gregorio Borgia) less
