Bertinotti calling Houston


In 1969 Tito Stagno entered the history books. He confused the times of the moon landing. He became an example for our journalism that from that moment onwards gives information when it wants to. Stagno remains in the memory of Italians. On the other hand, the names of the astronauts are remembered by no one.

The original film of the Apollo 11 has disappeared. The NASA engineer Richard Nafzger who has been looking for it among 2000 containers has declared: “I am perhaps too sensitive to the word “lost”. I don’t believe that that the film has been lost.”

And: “We used very good procedures to classify the films”. In the end he added that with his team of 5 people he will need 6 months to find it again. He’s a reassuring person. Six NASA engineers who search for a film by opening cardboard boxes. It’s better than Gianni e Pinotto.

I feel uncomfortable. After bancopoli {banking scandals} and Calciopoli {football scandals}, we’ve now got allunopoli {moon-landing scandals}. Did someone really land on the moon on 21 July 1969? That night the images were transmitted form Houston using a video recording that was captured from a TV camera. The missing film is the only proof. It’s strange that it has never been converted to digital format and transmitted in the original version.

What have we come to? To have the certainty that man has been on the moon we need to trust in a film. When I reflect on what is true and what is false I get thousands of doubts. The Prodi that I met at Palazzo Chigi, was he a hologram? Is Mastella minister of Justice? Does the Letta-Letta duo really exist?

Was D’Alema in Beirut or in Cinecitta? Is there a film that proves that Bertinotti is a communist? These are questions that cannot be answered. “The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind...”

The original English for "Gianni e Pinotto" should be "Abbot and Costello". I apologize for the fussiness.
