Shade in Italy: Politics and Entrepreneurs
Weekly - sort of - spot about Italian news. (Sorry for my weak English).

His full name is Luca Cordero di Montezemolo. He is chairman of Fiat, Ferrari, Confindustria. He has not inherited his fortune: he made it for himself by working loyally for the Agnelli Family. And he found his success by helping Ferrari win a lot of cups. But his name is too long: thus, some people call him Montezemolo, some others Cordero, many just Luca. Such is the destiny of aristocratic sounding names.

This week Luca Cordero di Montezemolo has spoken to the country as Confindustria's leader. He said that Italian politics is a heavy burden for Italian economy. But he conquered the headlines for what he has not said: everybody commented about his possible wish to become a politician. Which is quite paradoxical: if politics is a burden why should he wish to become a burden? But it is telling about Italian culture: you never look at what someone says, you always look at what someone is supposed to be really saying. Reveal secrets is thought to be the only game: understanding facts seems so boring. Please click to read about this story...
