Made up of 20
Regions and called by
its national name:
LA REPUBBLICA
ITALIANA
The
President
of Italy is
Giorgio
Napolitano
Silvio Berlusconi
Prime
Minister
Examples of Berlusconi being a
racist, gauche and ill-mannered:

In 2003, he advised investors in New
York to relocate to Italy because the
secretaries were better looking than
their American counterparts.
“Another reason to invest in Italy is that
we have beautiful secretaries…superb
girls!”
Examples of Berlusconi being a
racist, gauche and ill-mannered:

In November 2008 he was
accused of being racist, or at
least gauche, when he hailed
then President-elect Obama as
“handsome, young and also
suntanned.”
Examples of Berlusconi being a
racist, gauche and ill-mannered:

Two days after Italy’s biggest
earthquake for 30 years made
17,000 people homelsess,
Berlusconi toured some of the tent
sites around l’Aquila and said those
made homeless should see it as a
camping trip. (Tent cities were put
up and people endured freezing
temperatures.)
Examples of Berlusconi being a
racist, gauche and ill-mannered:

To a German MEP: “I know that in
Italy there is a man producing a
film on Nazi concentration camps –
I shall put you forward for the role
of Kapo (a guard chosen from
among the prisoners) – you would
be perfect!”
Examples of Berlusconi being a
racist, gauche and ill-mannered:

“I’d go anywhere with you, even to
a deserted island. If I weren’t
already married, I would marry you
straight away.” His wife, Veronica
Lario, wrote a letter published in a
national newspaper calling for a
public apology which she duly
received.
Berlusconi was acused of embarassing his country by
yelling a greeting at US President Barack Obama and
earning a rebuke from the Queen during an official G20
photo shoot in London.

He bellowed: “Mr. Obama!”, to
which he received a quiet response
of “Mr. Berlusconi” from the US
President. The Queen bristled at
his booming voice and said: “What
is it? Why does he have to shout so
loud?”
