Clementina’s Loneliness


Paolo Mieli is the director of il Corriere della Sera. Some say he is an historian, others believe him to be a journalist, many think that he is the postman of the RCS Board of Directors. A few years ago Big Paolo hurriedly took the place of Ferruccio De Bortoli who took refuge in il Sole 24 Ore. The reasons for his flight have not been revealed.
What’s certain is that after his exit, the backbone of il Corriere has bent even more. It didn’t seem possible. But Big Paolo has done miracles. Il Corriere is aligned more with Fede, better than Riotta.
It’s the Popolo d'Italia with the new strong powers in place of Mussolini. The RCS Board of Directors represents the Confindustria and the Italian Bank Association. What creates more fear for the strong powers in this Italy without leadership and without a future? The response is unique: the magistracy. The magistrates who lift up their head must be delegitimised.
As to why the prosecutors risk their lives and those of their loved ones in the face of the laziness of the politicians and the indifference (because they are badly informed) of a large part of the general public I can’t find an answer to that.
I don’t know the reasons why a woman who is fighting to cast light on the Unipol affair is isolated by the politicians, defamed, obliged to stay silent, threatened and in spite of all that, is not giving up.
Clementina Forleo cried on Saturday when she was receiving the «Premio Borsellino per l'impegno sociale e civile», {Borsellino Prize for Social and Civic Commitment}, because she is tired of the continual attacks and the attempts at delegitimisation by a national newspaper that says of her: “the image of a river in flood, and of a mad woman”.
Luciano Violante, pal of D'Alema and Fassino involved in the Unipol investigation, said yesterday: "A judge must not use the Media to seek consensus or advertising."
Violante has struck again. Judges use the Media, those few who still tell the truth, to save their life. More they talk, more they remain alive.
Clementina has received many threats, one of them: "Forecasted the death of her parents by the end of summer, who actually died in a road accident on 25 August 2005", considered an accident. Another concerned her directly: "If I had not been careful similar fate would have come for me and my husband." The incident was preceded by a fire that devastated the farm and the family home.

I just would like to say how shocked I am by the fact that some might doubt `Forleo's words.. or even that people might not realize the gravity of the situation she is denouncing ..
you are right, she has to seek the media coverage to save her life..or to prolong her life and her inquest..
thank's God we still have people like her and like Grillo or Santoro or Travaglio.. and others..who speak their minds..

but is that going to be enough, though, to win against the "strong powers" Forleo speak of?

I can only say I admire her deeply and I feel close to her.
Be strong Clementina!!

Secondly, I have some criticisms to you because I think you claim that all bad things are coming from the center-right wing, while Prodi and his coalition are pure and innocent.

Noi pensiamo che se ci sia del marcio in quasi ogni puro e innocente che risiede in parlamento.
Ecco perche grazie a questo Megafono stiamo facendo il possibile per levarceli dalle palle.

ps:riguardo al tuo invito di andarmene sul forum vogliamo proprio essere onesti sei tu l'ospite non io.

Great post

Mr Carli
you can express your opinion but should be inherent to the article and this is not. Also open your eyes and mind and be honest, Beppe is alone against the whole italian political class.
Beppe keep up the good work!

Dear Carlo Carli,

I think your comment is sabotaging the understanding of Beppe's multiple fights and political targets.

Beppe is clearly working towards the immediate sacking of both falsely-looking-idiot "Valium" Prodi and the "Psyco-Mullet" of vatican-mafia-media-mogul Berlusconi, and his egypto-sumerian tomb grave. Bless him.

Hope it fills sooner than later for this very annoying grandpa's.

They either step back or millions will arise.

Either we allow fast spreading neo-nazi-fascism which has total control over the electoral process (NWO) or we tell them to fuck off as Beppe suggested, and establish a Direct Popular Democracy through the responsible use of the Net.

Our choice!

Dear Grillo,

Congratulations for your campaign! I appreciate a lot. However, I have some comments to your article. Firstly, you may forget to take into account that Paolo Mieli is closer to Prodi than to Berlusconi and that last year before the elections, the Corriere della Sera's director adhered openly to Prodi's coalition and even wrote an article about it on the first page of his newspaper!

Secondly, I have some criticisms to you because I think you claim that all bad things are coming from the center-right wing, while Prodi and his coalition are pure and innocent.

I think that both are wrongly and shamelessly acting against all Italians!
