Mad scene

This entry is just an element to understand why and what's happening in Italy right now [most/all of the opera houses affected by strikes of unionized theater workers...]

Renato Brunetta is a minister in the actual Berlusconi government, and the way he attacks art and culture borders with madness.

If you understand well Italian, you're in for a hell of a ride. If you understand it only partly, the last minute of the video below is enough to get a clue.

N.B. Minister Brunetta also said --in an interview on public television-- that he's convinced he would've won the Nobel Prize if he didn't prefer to pursue his career in politics (see this video - with English subtitles!)
