Things That Happen in Italy

This blog has been quite critical of Italy so far. I am afraid people abroad may start thinking that Italy is a bad place not worth visiting. So, I feel I should invert this trend, and try to make justice to Italy’s beauty.

Yet, I find myself to be still in need of the right words, the right skills. I therefore appeal to Francesco Rutelli, Rome’s ex- lord mayor and, most of all, Berlusconi’s strenuous opponent in the 2001 election as Prime Minister (he lost), to inspire would-be visitors. This is Rutelli:

What is he looking at? No one can tell.

Listen to him, and then go pack your bags.
