Good Italy, Bad Italy, 'Girlfriend-In-A-Coma' Italy
"Imagine you have a girlfriend; and she is Italy. You love her dearly, but she is in a coma. She has been sick for a long, long time." Former Economist Editor Bill Emmott's expansive BBC documentary asks where has Italy gone wrong and examines (deep down inside) the good sides about the country as well as the disasters. With the next few weeks/months dominated by talking heads claiming to be experts on Italy, Italian politics, and Italian society; perhaps spending a few minutes on a Sunday night learning as opposed to guessing which blond will pick which buff young man in a reality show (or who Trump will fire) is time well spent (with a big glass of Chianti obviously).
