Mark Anthony Fassino

Cesare Salvi of the DS said the following in an interview with la Stampa:

Journalist: "Someone, like D'Alema and others, has said that it's not possible to consider red finance like the daughter of a minor god, and that there was 'financial' racism."

Salvi: "Certainly, but it's not possible to do this with Consorte and Unipol. It has been a political error to think that it was possible to compete in that terrain and someone should be aware of that..."

And he added:
” …Now we have to demonstrate rigour and a firm hand day by day, otherwise the culture of those who think that we are all equal will be accepted and therefore no-one will bother to go and vote.”

On the one hand: on Consorte, D’Alema knew and kept quiet (and I don’t believe that) or he didn’t know.
In the latter case he made a serious political error in supporting Consorte and his bid to get the BNL.

On the other hand: on Fiorani, D’Alema knew and kept quiet (and I don’t believe that) or he didn’t know.
In the latter case he’s been unlucky and a bit stubborn, after the publication of the telephone intercepts of conversations between Fiorani and Fazio last July, wanting to hang on to a mortgage of 8,000 Euro a month with the BPI to pay the instalments on his boat Ikarus II.

If the basis of support for the DS is like those families pictured on the publicity posters, I can’t imagine that they will be able to identify with D’Alema as President.
Fassino, it’s time to draw blood, do a clean sweep and appeal to the mass of the voters with a speech to celebrate the political funeral of Massimo D’Alema and while you are at it, also of Violante:

 
Italians, friends, countrymen, lend me your ears;
I come to bury Massimo D’Alema, not to praise him.
The evil that men do lives after them;
The good is oft interred with their bones:
So let it be with Massimo.
The noble Consorte
Hath told you Massimo was ambitious:
If it were so, it was a grievous fault;
And grievously hath Massimo answer'd it.
 
Here, under leave of Consorte and the rest, (1)
For Consorte is an honourable man;
So are they all, all honorable men,—
Come I to speak in Massimo's funeral.
He was my friend, faithful and just to me:
But Consorte says he was ambitious;
And Consorte is an honourable man.
 
 
 
He hath brought many financiers home to Rome, (2)
Whose ransoms did the general coffers fill:
Did this in Massimo seem ambitious?
 
 
When that the poor have cried, Massimo hath wept:
Ambition should be made of sterner stuff:
Yet Consorte says he was ambitious;
And Consorte is an honourable man.
You all did see that at the Congress
I thrice presented him a kingly crown,
Which he did thrice refuse: was this ambition?
Yet Consorte says he was ambitious;
And, sure, he is an honourable man.
 
 
  I speak not to disprove what Consorte spoke,
But here I am to speak what I do know of Massimo
You all did love him once,—not without cause:
What cause withholds you, then, to mourn for him?—
O judgment, thou art fled to brutish beasts,
And men have lost their reason!—Bear with me;
My heart is in the coffin there with Massimo D’Alema,
And I must pause till it come back to me. "

I woud like to send you an open letter in Italian for the Italian blog, but I cannot surf to th Italian website. Can you tell me please how I can do this?

Thank you very much,
silvia terribili

This is the letter I would like to publish in the blog:
Caro Guccini,

L'Italia arranca mentre Mediaset vola...

E tu, con la tua presenza, legittimi film politicamente irrilevanti come Ti amo in tutte le lingue del mondo.

Film in cui sembra che i peggiori problemi dell'Italia siano le turbe psichiche di una cagnetta o il complesso di Edipo di una scimmia.

Di questo dobbiamo occuparci?

E la guerra in Iraq? E il conflitto di interessi del premier grande come un transatlantico? E il degrado della TV pubblica? E l'analfabetismo galoppante degli italiani? E i 9 milioni di clienti di prostitute? E la crisi energetica? E il capitalismo delle cooperative?

Tutto questo sembra non esistere nel film cui presti la tua collaborazione, film peraltro apparentemente buonista nei confronti degli emigrati, ma che sembra trarre tutta la sua comicità dall'handicap fisico di un ragazzo...mah, resto molto, molto perplessa.

Credo che in qualsiasi barettaccio del pistoiese o del pratese si facciano in una serata più battute salaci e argute che in un film banale e soprattutto vuoto come Ti amo.

E i personaggi femminili? Stereotipati oppure insignificanti.

E' cinema questo? E’ intrattenimento intelligente ?

Proprio non sappiamo fare nulla di meglio????

Certo, rispetto ai film di Natale alla Boldi &De Sica, orrendi e indifendibili da qualsiasi punto di vista, a Pieraccioni bisogna dare un piccolo Oscar, ma solo perché chiunque riuscirebbe a far punti con avversari simili.

Guccini, ma sei proprio tu ? Quello di canzoni mirabili come Cirano, come Nostra Signora dell’Ipocrisia, non ci posso credere.....crolla rovinosamente un mito…..

Io pensavo che tu fossi vagamente di sinistra.

Che ti è successo ?

Dopo aver visto questo film, devo concludere che tu sei vagamente, e basta.

Scusa, ti volevo bene. Ti voglio bene per tutto quello che mi hai insegnato sulla poesia delle canzoni, per il tesoro di pezzi bellissimi che hai scritto, per la meravigliosa capacità di autocritica e di autoironia che avevi, che hai ancora, spero.

Posso dirti che oggi mi deludi ? Che non capisco. Che non ti capisco e mi sembra che tu stia sbagliando.

In Italia i film si fanno poco e male.

Le stagioni teatrali si fanno con gli ex-cantanti aspiranti scrittori mentre gli attori di teatro sono disoccupati.

E tu, che potresti ispirare e collaborare a film che abbiano qualcosa da dire, artisticamente e politicamente, che potresti dare una svegliata a questo mondo di intellettuali addormentati o conniventi, che si prestano a fare i guitti o le vallette di regime....

Perché questo è un regime, caro Guccini, e se anche quelli come te cedono....è la fine...
