The Italian media obsession with the weather

During a recent visit to Italy last week, I was shocked to realize how much media coverage was dedicated to the apparently unprecedented cold weather hitting the country. 

Even before leaving I was warned by friends and family that this was to be "the worst winter since 1985" but I could not anticipate that the national television channels would literally be monopolized by alarmist talks about snow storms, frost, Siberian temperatures and all sorts of weather related apocalyptic…

The strange silence around Greece

It is somehow surprising to observe the coverage of the current Greek crisis by the international media. 

Although the situation is one of the most serious which the European Union has faced to date, the level of attention given to the unfolding of the events in Greece seems rather inappropriate. 

The major international media outlets provide reports and updates whenever riots break out or parliament decides for yet more austerity measures.  

Only a few days ago, on…

Kader Arif: "We need to create a public debate".

The resignation of Kader Arif, of his position as rapporteur for ACTA, last January, rings the bell of "how far" the EU Commission has betrayed our trust in the EU. It is an evidence that the treaty is harmful and misleading.

It is on the other hand, a sign of hope that we still can fight and defeat such an agreement, if we unite and direct our actions to our own Parlamentarians, urging them "not to sign" it or ratify it in June 2012.

In exclusive interview to…
