By Isla Binnie ROME (Reuters) - When he lent his support to a fight against a high-speed train line through the mountains between France and Italy, Erri De Luca never expected to face jail. "If they convict me, censorship has triumphed," De Luca said at his home in the countryside outside Rome. "In that courtroom I am the accused, but that courtroom is also under scrutiny from public opinion."
