Conflict between Italy and the Netherlands over Berlusconi joke
Last update: October 13, 2011 8:19 p.m.
AMSTERDAM – At the opening of an exhibition on the Etruscans in Amsterdam Thursday afternoon a conflict broke out.
The Italian Ambassador Franco Giordano and his entourage walked away after NOS TV correspondent Andrea Vreede in her lecture compared Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi to sex-crazed Etruscan kings.
Does this Ambassador Franco Giordano have no sense of humor, walking away from the Allard Pierson museum because of a joke?
Actually, it looks like Ms Vreede (who has a degree in archaeology) has been too mild in her Berlusconi joke. She should not have compared Berlusconi to a sex-crazed Etruscan king (or to Julius Caesar), but to a sex-crazed 21st century mafia don. Which Berlusconi basically is.
One of Silvio Berlusconi’s “escorts” has publicly encouraged women to view their beauty as a marketable asset. Some of the prime minister’s political opponents say his tenure has degraded the atmosphere for women in the work force: here.
The courts may have overturned Silvio Berlusconi’s conviction for having sex with a under-age prostitute, but Italy is still bunga bunga country, says TOM GILL: here.
