Carnival Italia

Costa Concordia is the metaphor for Italy. A whale come to a standstill on the rocks. First the captain caused the problem, then he denied it and then he fled. Like “Piè Veloce Berlusconi” {fast-footed Berlusconi}. The captain insisted on giving instructions from the shore, while his feet were dry, while his lieutenants stayed on board (conversation). Exactly like the parties with the Monti government. The ship has an Italian name, but the owner is American ... like our country. The American owner is called Carnival, just like the management of our public finances. The crew was made up of those from outside Europe, crikey, just like those that are working in Italy. Carnival’s share price collapsed on the Stock Exchange, just like our public bonds To save the savable, the crew mutinied while the ship was keeled over on her side. Well, this has not yet happened here on solid ground. On the Concordia, the crew was able to rebel only because of the absence of security forces to beat them up on the orders of the captain, as in Val di Susa. The name Concordia refers to the unity between the nations of Europe. In fact, its thirteen decks have the names of European states, including Greece, Italy, Great Britain, Portugal, France, Germany, a reassurance while the euro is deflating and the Germans would rather cut off an arm rather than finance Italy and Greece. The alarm was raised late, once the ship had keeled over. Exactly the same as the Italian economic catastrophe, to Tremorti and the “crisis that has happened in the past” Help arrived from private vessels. There weren’t enough lifeboats. The life-jackets were fought over by the passengers and the decks in a state of chaos. It seems like an ordinary Italian day. The disaster didn’t happen because of natural causes but from inattention. A rule for Italy. Concordia went down because it came close to the island to "fare un omaggio” {send a greeting} with its horn blasting out to friends and authorities on Giglio unknown to them. Just like for Scajola and Malinconico! At its launch, the champagne bottle thrown against its side, bounced off. The disaster happened on Friday 13th. If we were superstitious we would be running away.

I do not agree completely with the whole comment, but still it's true that we are not in a good moment in Italy
