The most repulsive and loathsome aspect of everything I have read these days in the Italian press, was to see a total dystonia by the entire elite of Italian journalism and without missing a beat, the Italian TV Star System, lining up against the closing of "Let's talk Saturday" (Parliamone Sabato) and a larger part of the Italian public entusiastic towards it's shut down.
I believe a question or two is necessary regarding the actual or real capability/wanting of this "self-referential ... More
I don't understand your annoyance towards Italy, as if only wickedness is a priority in this country. I don't agree with your accusations towards racism, it isn't correct for you to condemn a country this ferociously.
Here in the North there are optimal examples of integration, many people are doing their utmost to help, not just to blend in, but helping them with health care, at times even gratis. In my little town, there is an association that helps single parents (young women)... More
In ITALY it only takes 7 minutes to lose your son and/or daughter.
The verdict from the Court of Appeals in Turin, which confirmed the adoptability of Gabriella Carsano and Luigi Deambrosis' daughter, meaning, that they can't raise their own daughter, is INHUMANE and ABOMINABLE and is the total opposite of the most fundamental of human rights.
The motivation regarding this verdict is, are you ready (?): the parent's ages (today they are 63 and 75 years of age, and, at the time of the ver... More
I truly thought it was someone's obsession.
On the contrary! In Italy, everything is forgiven. but "flipping the bird" is a no no.
I see hypocrisy and a bit of bigotry. It is 'my' opinion, God forbid.
I think that at times, certain conversations without curse words or inappropriate gestures, are far more disrespectful and hurtful.
It is the excitement and thrill (emotion?) that comes from within, that counts.
A gesture or off-putting word, at times, is used in a cleansing way.... More
Our six year old twins, Elizabeth Jaden and Dylan Maria started school when they were 2 years of age. I must admit that it was exciting and entertaining, in the beginning. It was a Chinese International School, where they were learning Cantonese and English. They would go from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm every single day. I am not one of those mothers with 2-3 Helpers (nannies, in simple wording.....), we do have help, but my husband and I have always been "Hands-On" parents and, we love it.... More
A few days ago I fell upon a comment by an incredulous follower of Luogocomune (www.luogocomune.net) who was flabbergasted by the images of Bin Laden, Aldo Moro, the moon landing, and by controlled demolitions, in the background, during one of my musical numbers choreographed for "Pinocchio", a song written for me by Pino Daniele, that aired on Rai 1 during the second show of Nemica Amatissima.
I must admit that the disbelief is mine!
How is this so, I have been asking myself sin... More
I would have preferred in writing a thank you letter regarding the great opportunity of returning to RAI 1 as a way of saying goodbye to my fans.
But many a word was left strangling in my throat.
I decided not to utter a word, out of respect to everyone who displayed their affection, before, during and after the two Nemica Amatissima shows. Alas, it is especially for my limitless sense of responsibility that I have decided to write this article, for the Italian audiences.
I arrived in... More

"Nel '79 amavo i gay e l'acqua Panna, mentre oggi amo i gay, mio marito, i miei figli e l'acqua Evian".
Se chiudo gli occhi e penso per un momento alla star internazionale Heather Parisi, me la immagino perfetta. Poi, quando la incontro, mi accorgo che la perfezione è davvero il suo cavallo di battaglia. Pelle impeccabile, denti bianchissimi, capelli luminosi e un savoi... More
