Did it seem like all the XBRL news last week was coming out of Washington? As usual, there were developments everywhere else. They were meeting in Rome last week to kick off the official Italian jurisdiction, with Infocamera, the companies registrar, set to co-ordinate the development of taxonomies for collecting financial information from companies all over the country. According to this communique, the work will be completed by March next year. XBRL in Italy has been slow to incubate, but I’d say they have their timing just about right!
