Are we finally getting rid of Mr Berlusconi??
Next Sunday and Monday there will be General elections in Italy. After five years of a catastrophic government ingaged only in tailored law making for the vast personal interests of the prime minister, this is the big question.
In which serious democracy the richest citizen who owns personally the three major private TV stations, controls the public TV and excercizes censorship without any retention, in which serious democracy a man like this can be prime minister??
But eaven if he will loose the election it will take a long time to overcome the cultural and moral disaster caused by this man, his dubious team, his TV stations...
I found this leftover poster of the European elections 2004 some months later during my trip to Paris. It shows very well the image our beloved country has achieved abroad through this man...
For my fellow-Italians: Anch'io sono un coglione!! :-)
PS: I hope to be back on TE more regularly after Easter.

LOL Guenther, I feel you quite upset with this note, but from a strict photo point of view the message is strong and that s the impact of it, good luck... greetings from Kyoto JY

Grande Günther!! Bé, direi che questa foto è un ottimo documento sulla situazione attuale del nostro paese... Ottimamente colta e scattata.
Noi in Südtirol eravamo gia messi bene con gli Schützen che spoarano boiate a raffica, ma quelle che ha sparato il nostro caro Silvio negli ultimi giorni sono proprio mitiche..
W i coglioni!!!

Now I hope that the italian life changes and we will have five years of normality.

Hola Guenther: Interesante composición con el cartel y este señor que parece que no quiere dejar de ser presidente de los italianos pese a haber perdido las elecciones. Lo que me ha sorprendido desde la distancia de España es cómo casi la mitad del país sigue votándole. Dentro de dos semanas estaré en Sorrento, pero creo que no vivías por allí, por si acaso te lo comento. Un abrazo.

Finally it worked and Prodi won ! I think it's a good new for all the European community to see Berlu out of the game.
Your picture is well managed and the message is clear and interesting.
Thanks for sharing, I think TE could be also a great place to share ideas !

good news, since you published this photograph, he was rejected (of little)
It is amusing to find in France a photograph which serves your topicality. We have also a character (N. Sarkozi) whose his portrait was posted in Paris without any slogan, nor his name, just his face... more powerful than this rider. too bad !

whatever opinions... this shot is right!well seen.

Hi hi hi!!! Like it very much. The fact that part of the poster has already been ripped off and the sticker on his mouth (and what's written on it) really makes your pictures a powerful message.
I like it even more since we lost the world cup final ;-(

ah ! as we are not too much encouraged here for these messages,I am always happy to say what I think, so As I already said NO to Jack Lang, Colonnes de Burhen, Mac Donalds restaurants, Cola which is not Breiz cola ( this one we make in Brittany), I say no to this "coglione" of Berlusconi and say the same thing about GW Bush.. Having already seen through TV how something is missing in their brains, in any case enough miss to lead great Democracies like Italy and States...
Ok this said, I like the simple photo message.
