"BERLUSCONIMANIA!!!- 2003 NEW YEAR'S SHOW!!!"

THE EVENT!!!

To encourage Italians in the bad economy moment (inflation running high 
and economy stopping) Berlusconi will appear on all italian Tv Channels 
at Midnight in a giant champagne cup & dressed up as a fifty's "Play 
Boy" Bunny ( fur is light blue of course).

He will be lustily singing: "Diamonds are Berlusconi's best friends..." 
( a classic of the Marilyn Monroe & Madonna culture...)

THE BACKSTAGE GOSSIP!!!

In two years of government three important laws have been made ( against 
all european criteria) to stop processes incriminating him.

LAW AND JUSTICE!!!

Law and Justice is a new association where several well known 
progressive intellectuals ( Umberto Eco, Furio Colombo ecc...) have 
decided to sign for.

The association will try to control the actions that the government is 
taking in several fields.

( a curiosity: during the thirties a group of anti-fascists called 
themselves "Justice and Freedom")

CULTURAL BATTLES!!!

In the heated battle for audience between what is left of public TV 
(centre left) and Berlusconi's channels, Monica Lewinsky was invited to 
enlighten italian public on several philosophy matters.

But they had to back up defeated because of the vigorous attacks of 
Forza Italia TV Channels accusing the Public Channels of stealing 
audience with low strokes.

Miss Levinsky went back.

MYTHIC ACTIONS!!!

Two earthquakes are shaking Sicily: closing of sicilian Fiat factory & 
the great Etna Volcano, both shivering and erupting.

Our beloved president came flying ( San Francis?) over Sicily (and 
forgetting Fiat) and over the Volcano promising money (?) everywhere.

The Etna Volcano answered with a powerful eruption.

CULTURAL CRITICS!!

The "take over of all power" through media was till Berlusconi rather a 
research matter .

Now is a matter of fact.

In the "final solution" that Berlusconi is building of a "presidential" 
republic(?) there is much to interrogate.

"A confortable, levigated, reasonable, democratic non-freedom prevails 
in industrial civilization, sign of a technical progress"

Sounds quite contemporary ?

Guess who wrote it?

Herbert Marcuse 1964 "One dimensional man"

MERCHANDIZING!!!

Are now available the back numbers of "BERLUSCONIMANIA" from 30 to 3000

Available as well the Berlusconi Dolls in several outfits: presidential 
suit, smoking ecc..

The Doll can say "Mi consenta." (."Please allow me") a typical soothing 
Berlusconi phrase

AND DON'T YOU FORGET THE MIDNIGHT SHOW!!!
