To my amateur eye, it's close to Bembo Semibold Ital: . Except for the traitorous, crummy-looking y-descender in the linked page. – Pete Wilson Oct 26 '11 at 19:07

This is Lyon Text Regular Italic, I believe.

The text in blue is from the Commercial Type "type test" (their name, not mine) - the font is also available from that site. I did a quick overlay of the two just to make sure.
