According to the book "Gas's banker, Calvi, the ehad of abnco Ambrosiano, was using the vatican to help rich Italians to convert their fortunes from
the then plummeting lira, to foriegn currency. This was a 'circumvention' of Italian law.
Italy was tryign to avoid an ecomonic collapse, so the passed legislation against export of currency. Banco Ambrosiano had opened branches in South
America, so you only had to open an account in Italy, and make a withdraw at the other end. A lot of money flooded out that way. According to the
book, Calvi did this with the knowledge of some highly placed Vatican officials. He was reputed a member of the notorious P2, and was probably either
pressured into it by them, or once he had started, was pressed into taking it to far by his secret society buddies.
