The essence of Caesarism!

Really worth watching from the beginning to the end. Hysterically funny!

  1. "Prova, prova" is pure genius. She's taken this character so far it's not even Berlusconi anymore, it's Berlusconismo, post-fascism, there's a lot of stuff to unpack there. I think it might go some way to put in context for our Anglo Saxon friends why you referred to him the other day as a dwarf ("bald dwarf" I believe is the complete title) - much as I'm not partial to it, it's because of the grotesque cult of self, the platform shoes, the time taken off work to "recover" from his hair transplants. That's another thing he has in common with Mussolini, if only aspirationally - remember those marvellous photos of the Duce harvesting wheat bare-chested in Piazza del Duomo, in Milan? And then of course there was Ciano, the pin-up of the regime.

    Anyways, thanks for posting this.
