Italians Need Dignity

In so many words Berlusconi often likes to tell Italians that they should be pleased with what they’ve got.

The trouble is he is missing the point, what Italians want and need more than anything else is dignity.

If Berlusconi, or any other Italian politician for that matter, manages to achieve this goal, then he or she, will be welcomed as the country’s president.  But it will take much more than the Italian national football team winning the World Cup from time to time to reach this objective.

Stop reading, start speaking

Stop translating in your head and start speaking Italian for real with the only audio course that prompt you to speak.

Italians have a wonderful country and they should feel proud of it, and not feel embarrassed to be Italian – as often seems to be the case at the moment, usually as a result of the same person who likes to tell them they’ve never had it so good making ill considered off the cuff comments.

Berlusconi – give Italians dignity and you will go down in history as being one of Italy’s greatest leaders of all time.

Stands down from soap box.
