In Italy now a day you have two main entities:
1) The Mafia
2) The "pizzaioli"
The first one is the bunch of politicians who get the percentage of the country's income depending on the percentage of the votes they get.
The second is the bunch of people who live happily ever after because they have a portable phone and a Stadium where to go on Sundays to watch the Soccer game.
There are also women who are not interested in the soccer game, but they still have a cell phone to play with and a lot of "Soaps" on TV.
That is the explanation why Italy is heading for the bottom and nobody does anything to prevent it.
Politicians in first row...
