Monicelli and the truth about Italy

Stories and News No. 167

The truth is that when Mario Monicelli will be no more here – with this I hope to extend his life as much as possible… - you will see a lot of pseudo-artists, writers and actors parading among the various tv shows to give their indispensable witness in memory of their teacher, telling us that they were friends of him and that they have learned everything from him.
I want to celebrate him once again today, when he is still with us, and not as a director, but rather as a man, for his precious words, which in my humble opinion should be carved.
Because we don’t often hear the truth…

The Story:

The trouble here is that there is no government… there is nothing here.
The truth is that Italy… the Italians are not governed, there is no democracy, because there is certainly not a people's government, there is no monarchy, no aristocracy, nothing…
There are people who only camped here, to defend their interests, earning money, to defend themselves from attack of the others, nobody wants to govern…
What does the prime minister? He moves from one department to another, constantly going around saying everything is fine, we're fine, we are better than others...
Everything is in disarray...
Today there was an important meeting in the Chamber of Deputies where the Minister of Economy explained the situation of our economy… The euro is going headlong.
Now we want to know at what point the euro is, the euro is what makes us alive, which gives us the salaries and is going headlong…
Italy is failing…
The Minister was in the Chamber of Deputies… there are 600 deputies, there were 50! What did other550? They were all over Italy, in the world, to grab, earning money, to bring their money abroad, to save the family, to save each other...
Nobody takes care of Italy, governs this poor country… everyone does his own interest... when he can… it’s just a minority, because who cannot do is just waiting to know what is the future…
The Italians would like to have someone... they have always done this, they have always hoped that someone was looking after their affairs and leave them quiet... the strong man… They had for decades... and he sent them to disaster, war, massacres…
They wanted another… the last one is not even able to do this...
He can do his business and all those who are with him make their business…
It's a boat that is sinking, is drifting this poor peninsula and everybody is concerned only to save his own skin…
This is the state of things, this is the situation of the peninsula, this is the truth, this must be said…
