BERLUSCONIMANIA: STARWARS & STARDUSTS
 
THE SET
Berlusconi is dancing up and down the starry staircase of his tipical Tv-Shows.
THE DRESS DESIGN
He is wearing the perennial light-Blue dress of Forza Italia. On his head the tipical Fruit Hat (Ananas, cherries,and of course Bananas) that dancer/singer Carmen Miranda used to wear in fortie's musicals ( Disney's "Three Caballeros" for instance).
With him is Iron Lady Moratti (Minister of Education). She is wearing an all-black-leather-sado-maso-suit and she performs a "whip Dance" ( like Gerard Malanga in Andy Warhol's show "Exploding Plastic Inevitable" with live-music by  the Velvet Underground).
THE MUSIC
"Mambo Italiano" performed by Perry Como
THE EDUCATION
While thousands of students get to the streets the Moratti's reform brings italian education back to the fifties.
First act is cutting thousands of teaching places all over Italy.
THE RELIGION
Encouraged by the obvious flirting of Forza Italia with important religious values ( the money given to private schools mostly owned by the church) the Pope has given a very strong attack on the system and idea itself of abortion.
THE LAW
The last of the numberless trials where Berlusconi is involved is been under  extreme attack by the Government. The Trial will be moved away from Milano to avoid the centrality of the scandal.
THE PHILOSOPHY
" Nights are not long enough to read all documents... but i have to...." Berlusconi
THE POST-FEMINISM
"...My wife has helped enormously producing these new laws on teaching!..." Berlusconi (!!!?!)
THE WARS
THe Military Marine will be employed to stop immigrants boats on the italian (seven) seas
