Short Post One – Nuclear Italy

Nuclear Power Plant

After the Japan disaster, Italy has become a very confusing place on the issue of whether or not to stick nuclear power plants all over the Living Museum.

Initial official reaction after disaster in Japan:

  • We’re forging ahead with Italy’s nuclear plans regardless.

Subsequent official reaction:

  • Maybe we’ll think about forging ahead with popping nuclear power plants all over Italy before we do.

Following official reaction:

  • We’re not going to build nuclear plants in Italy.

The next official reaction:

  • We’re only thinking about not starting to build nuclear power plants in Italy for a year or so.

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.

Further official reaction:

  • We’re going to build nuclear power plants in Italy regardless.

Latest official reaction:

  • Berlusconi: We only said we were not going to build nuclear power plants in Italy to avoid the planned referendum on the issue.

Future official reaction:


Confusing, isn’t it?

Will Italy go nuclear? Who knows, but one hopes it does not – at least until the age-old organised crime problem has been wiped out – like some time in the next millennium or so.

The title of this entry can be translated as ‘we are all equal in the eyes of the law’ and it is the motto you will see in displayed in every Italian law court. The problem is that this is just not true.
