Today Subramanian Swamy Ji touched upon the Agnelli's:
Could it indeed be that Maino has something to with it?

After using some of my 'contacts' I stumbled upon here:
Yes, the story of the takeover is interesting. Initially Gianni Agnelli (the patriarch of the family) chose his nephew Giovanni Alberto Agnelli as his heir. But hise dies from a rare form of cancer in 1997, only 33 years old. Then the probable heir became Gianni Agnelli's only son Edoardo (who in 1986 was a member of the Juventus board, and had a keen interest in football). However, Edoardo had strong ties with Iran and was a convert to Islam, so one day in 2000 he wass found "suicided" under extremely misterious circumstances. Supposedly he stopped his car on a highway viaduct and plunged to his death from almost 80m, appearently without any reason. No official autopsy was ever done and the case was hastily closed as a suicide by the Italian police. The Italian "regime" press went out of their way to portray Edoardo like an unstable person, but according to people close to him - he was an intellectual, spiritual and lucid person. There are persistent (and credible) theories that he was murdered by Mossad, to avoid that the control of Italy's most important industrial conglomerate (FIAT) falls into the hands o an "Iran-friendly" CEO. Edoardo is considered a "Martyr" by the Republic of Iran, who even produced an interesting documentary on his life and death. So, with the two "Italian" heirs out of the picture, the Jewish "Elkann" branch of the family had a free reign and is now safely in control through John Elkann. FIAT is now increasingly divesting from Italy and moving operations elsewhere, turning their once mighty Turin headquarters increasingly into an empty shell. Rumors are that, should the remaining "Italian" Agnellis try to reassert their control over the family posessions, their life might be in danger. Juventus FC is just a relatively small (although very well known) piece of the Agnelli's properties which are huge and estimated at tens of billions of dollars.

The documentary on Edoardo Agnelli mentioned in the previous post.
The commentary accompanying the video:
Edoardo Agnelli was born on June 1954 in New York city , his father was Christian and his mother was Jewish . His mother (Marella Caracciolo di Castagneto ) was a Jewish princess and his father was senator Gianni Agnelli, a famous and rich man in Italy . He was the owner of automobile factories, Fiat, Ferrari, Lancia, Lamborghini, Alfa Romeo and Iveco and also factories producing industrial parts, many private Banks, companies of fashion, design and clothes, important published newspapers such as (LASTAMPA) and (CorriereDellaSera), the clod-house of Ferrari motoring and the Juventus football club. In addition there are many building constructions and road construction companies, medical equipment and helicopter production companies in which his family are the main shareholders. The amount of his family's wealth and influence are so great that the press in Italy calls them the Italian royal family. The economic experts estimate the annual income of Agnelli's family to be many times more than the petroleum income of the Islamic Republic of Iran
