Silvio Berlusconi's Hedonism

By June 2, 2011

Follow me on:

A long-form article in The New Yorker, titled "Basta Bunga Bunga," asks: "Have Italians had enough of Silvio Berlusconi—and the culture he embodies?" Included in the coverage is a Berlusconi campaign video from 2008 in which women, adoring and otherwise, sing high praise to the prime minister. As the author points out:

Berlusconi is the nation's waning Hugh Hefner, reviled and admired for his hedonism—except that he's supposed to be running the country.
