In the Italian news websites it seems this case had a secondary importance, but it was even less visible in the tv news. Fortunately the international news is talking about it.
From BBC NEWS:
"Imagine the same in other countries, where the leader of the government was implicated in a massive bribery scam. You wouldn't be able to move outside the court for microphones and camera lenses.
But not in Italy.
Here, there is a quiet resignation among ordinary Italians that sailing close to the legal wind has become a trademark of their leader and the odd squall just shows he's human. It adds to his flamboyant appeal.
It seems that as long as he doesn't steer the great ship Italy towards the rocks, then Italians are prepared to forgive Mr Berlusconi.
It certainly doesn't stop them voting for him, as was proved by last year's overwhelming electoral success in the general election."
How is this possible!?!
