Powercut in Italy

I read in the paper yesterday that a serious powercut hit Italy the day before. Granted, it was on Sunday that the powercut happened but I was shocked that such a major event escaped under my radar until Monday evening. UserFriendly is the first mention I’ve seen of it online, but now that I’m looking for it, I found it on rte.ie too.
There’s an expression here, “Ireland is closer to Boston than Berlin”. The reference is to economic policy but holds too for English speaking media which is sad.
