Berlusconi Fan Club Celebrated Berlusconi’s Conviction!

Recently in Italy, an odd little group of Berlusconi fans called Silvio’s Army – L’esercito di Silvio – appeared on the scene.

This, somewhat small, group of Italians don’t really understand Italian, it seems, for when the Berlusconi Mediaset tax fraud conviction was announced yesterday, they thought their idol had been let off! They celebrated. They got it all wrong though.

For a second, it looked as if this, small, group of Berlusconi fans were celebrating the conviction of Berlusconi!

Someone caught the 20 or so ‘soldiers’ in Silvio’s Army at the exact point when they misunderstood their own language!

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.


Eventually, they did realize their mistake. Now, this less than crack team of soldiers will have to come to terms with the fact that their idol is no more than a common criminal.

Such is the caliber of Berlusconi supporters. Maybe this is why Berlusconi’s PdL party never managed to reform Italy – the poor things simply do not understand Italian!

Nichi Vendola – Does Italy’s Gay Communist Stand a Chance?

Last week, Silvio Berlusconi had a snide go at homosexuals. His attack led to widespread uproar both in Italy and abroad. The comment – “better to like beautiful girls than to be gay” – was probably aimed at one Nichi Vendola, an Italian politician who also happens to be gay. Vendola is the president of the Italian region of Apulia, and he seems to be readying himself for elections.
