TELECOM Italia, Italy's largest telephone company, said its board will meet on Tuesday to resolve a management conflict that could lead to the resignation of one its top executives.

Vito Gamberale, one of the firm's three director-generals, wrote to chairman Gian Mario Rossignolo demanding a redefinition of his role and management powers. Gamberale has refused to comment but excerpts of his letter were published by the newspaper La Repubblica yesterday.

Gamberale was quoted as saying in his letter that since requests for a clarification of his role had remained unanswered, he was "not in the circumstances able to carry through the task I have been entrusted with, as the conditions to do so are not there any more."
