I think the bottom line is that Micron really doesn't have much use for older fabs like the one in Italy, when they can buy fairly new capacity like Elpida for pennies on the dollar.

Avezzano is a very old fab at this point. Even when it was new, it was never a benchmark facility in terms of yield or productivity. The restrictive Italian labor laws don't help. As I recall the engineers that worked there always wanted to work more on development rather than yield or productivity enhancement. Maybe they will get their wish now.
