Alcuni dicono che in Italia abbiamo dei politici che sono dei clown e dei comici che fanno i politici.
Obiettivamente, il comico Beppe Grillo è molto attivo socialmente e politicamente per denunciare gli sprechi, la corruzione e le inefficienze dei politici italiani.
Ricopre in pieno il ruolo del giullare medievale, l’unico che poteva andare dal re, criticarlo apertamente e ridergli in faccia.
Conosci Beppe Grillo?
Some say that in Italy we have politicians who are clowns and comedians who are politicians.
Indeed, the comedian Beppe Grillo is very active socially and politically in reporting corruption and inefficiency of the Italian political system.
He is perfect in the role of the medieval jester, the only one who could go to the king, laugh in his face and criticize him openly.
Do you know Beppe Grillo?

Yesterday night Italians watched a very sad show on TV.
Mr. Berlusconi, in a one-man show, called Italian journalists “farabutti” (rogue, dishonest), for criticizing him and the government. Saturday September 19 there will be a big march in Rome, in favour of the Italian press and freedom of speech.
Check here for the latest comments on foreign magazines about Italy and Mr. Berlusconi.

Buongiorno a tutti! After a magic and relaxing day at the beach, waiting for the sunset to express a wish as soon as the sun disappears, and waiting for the shooting stars for more wishes to express, I am back to reality.
I want to share with you an interesting article by Chiara Volpato, published on the New York Times.
Let’s see if, after the sunset and the shooting stars, all the wishes become reality!
