G8 Done in l’Aquila

Incredible hours we are living these days in Europe, in Italy: the G8 meeting in an earthquake site in L’Aquila, violent hailstorms paralyzing traffic in Milan, a Michael Jackson memorial in front of the Gothic church Il Duomo. Nothing seems too weird, as if different worlds have accumulated in these moments of economic, cultural and climatic collapse.

With the big slogan designed on the ground: YES WE CAMP, the G8 meeting in L’Aquila had started: judged by the Guardian and New York Times as rather dubious, since it was organized by the Italian prime minister Silvio Berlsusconi.

The damage he has done to this beautiful country with its wobbling democracy is beyond repair. With his clown face and cheeky ignorance, he matches Bush and Mussolini.

When one thinks of modern Italy, one inevitably thinks of Silvio Berlusconi as its personification. Forget la dolce vita, the Trevi fountain, spaghetti and pizza, fine wines like Barolo, Chianti and Barbera: think rude and ignorant politicians, sex scandals, mafia-style palace intrigues, the dark times of an empire.
