politics Conflict on the centre-right James Walston

Umberto Bossi (left), Gianfranco Fini (centre) and Claudio Scajola (below) have all been creating problems for Silvio Berlusconi in recent weeks.

Scandal and in-fighting in the government coalition are undermining its recent victory in regional elections 26 May 2010


t the end of March, Silvio Berlusconi’s centre-right Popolo della Libertà (PdL) and its allies the Lega Nord (LN) won a significant victory in elections in 13 out of the country’s 20 regions. They took four regions from the centre-left, two against all expectations. Not for the first time the prime minister pulled the winning rabbit out of the hat after a month of concentrated campaigning. The result looked like a ringing endorsement of the PdL/LN government coalition and Berlusconi promised that with three years of calm until the next parliamentary elections it would pass a raft of major constitutional reforms, as well as dealing with the everyday business of economic recovery and fighting organised crime. The reforms have been on the table for more than a decade now. The most important for the LN is what it calls “federalism”: fiscal in the first place, and then the devolution of a number of other powers from Rome to the regions. There are no details of what federalism might mean in practice, but the party leader, Umberto Bossi, is very clear that the LN’s support for the government is conditional upon the reforms being passed. Linked to the introduction of federalism is a proposed revision of the powers of the two chambers of parliament to reduce the number of members and make the senate, or upper house, into a “Chamber of the Regions” with different responsibilities. Berlusconi himself wants to see a reform of the executive, making Italy into a presidential republic (like the United States) or introducing a semi-presidential system (like France), or at least increasing the prime minister’s powers. He also wants to reform the judiciary and reduce its powers over the executive and parliament. In theory, he has the majority and the time to do it. But as so often happens in politics, these plans have gone rapidly awry. The grumbling row between Berlusconi and the PdL’s co-founder, Gianfranco Fini, came to a spectacular head when the two men had a stand-up row in front of the television cameras at the party’s national executive in April. Then one of Berlusconi’s closest allies and most competent organisers, economic development minister Claudio Scajola, was forced to resign after it emerged that a friendly businessman had contributed €900,000 to the purchase of a flat in Rome. Finally, as official commemorations for next year’s 150th anniversary of Italian unification got underway at the beginning of May, the LN said it was not going to celebrate anything. The Scajola scandal should have been a brief glitch in a comic setting. Magistrates investigating alleged corruption involving the civil protection department discovered that one of the businessmen involved gave Scajola cheques for 60 per cent of the cost of his 180 sqm flat near the Colosseum. Resigning, Scajola declared: “Should I ascertain that my house had been partially paid for by others for reasons or interests unknown to myself I would ask my lawyers to annul the contract.” American politicians used to say that unexplained money came from a “tin box” left by their grandmother; this is the first time that a politician claims someone else paid for his house unbeknown to him. But Scajola’s resignation is not the end of the story; the civil protection scandal involves others in the government and there is talk that other ministers are at risk. Once again, there is more than a whiff of corruption and it will not go away easily. The row between Berlusconi and Fini is potentially even more damaging. It has never been a secret that the two men have a strong personal antipathy towards each other and over the last couple of years the contrast has become political as well. It was Fini’s thinktank FareFuturo that blew the whistle last year over the bimbo candidates for the European elections; Fini himself has spoken up in favour of integrating immigrants more fully and more effectively and there is a bipartisan bill put forward by a Fini lieutenant, Fabio Granata, which would make it much easier for children of immigrants to take Italian citizenship (at the moment they have to wait until they are 18). Above all, Fini cannot accept Berlusconi’s dominance of policy and the party’s agenda. Cont. on page 13.

Conflict on the centre-right Cont. from page 3.

In April Berlusconi criticised Fini’s appeal for an internal debate in the party and accused him of having a conflict of interest between his position as speaker of the chamber of deputies and as an active politician. Fini’s response summed up the main reason for the contrast: “What’ll you do? Will you throw me out?” This was a challenge to Berlusconi to claim the speakership as his prerogative along with everything else. Since then Fini has launched a local network across Italy called Generazione Italia. Its aims are an implicit indictment of Berlusconi and the rest of the PdL; it would like to see “merit as the only value by which to judge young people” and to “reinforce the concept of legality so that whoever makes mistakes pays for them.” The gauntlet is firmly in the ring for Berlusconi’s succession and there will be increasing skirmishing over the next year or so. Finally, the snubbing by the LN of the unification ceremonies looks like pique but it too is a challenge to Berlusconi, a warning that the party wants its reforms and quickly. If not, it just might bring the government down. Berlusconi beat the centre-left opposition fairly easily in March. Today he is having much more difficulty governing his own coalition. That rosy glow of victory has worn off very fast. James Walston PROFESSIONAL ENGLISH TEACHER. Mother-tongue, TEFL-certified. Very experienced. Travel to your home or office.

3V page 15 Shahzia Sikander. 6 May-Sept. Since the early 1990s, Shahzia Sikander has been instrumental in the rediscovery, re-infusion and re-contextualisation of IndoPersian miniature painting.

Her multi-dimensional creative process radically rearticulates the miniaturist tradition by inserting new dialogue that is often subversive and polemical in nature.

The setting has been up-dated to a claustrophobic rural community on some distant island, and Giselle is a solitary young girl who longs for true love and children of her own.

Opera Notes This year is the 300th anniversary of the birth of Pergolesi and Jesi, the city of his birth in the Marche region, is dedicating a festival to the event with three of his works. Quest’anno ricorrono i 300 anni della nascita di Giovanni Battista Pergolesi e la Fondazione a lui dedicata organizzerà a Jesi, città natale del compositore, Il Pergolesi Festival di Primavera (4-13 giugno). Si comincerà con Il Flaminio (4 e 6 giugno) al Teatro Moriconi, per la direzione di Ottavio Dantone e la regia di Michal Znaniecki; sarà suonata dall’Accademia Bizantina e sarà cantata da Juan Francisco Gatell, Laura Polverelli, Marina De Liso e Vito Priante. Il Flaminio è un’opera che si presenta come una fusione, di perfetto equilibrio, di musica popolare e musica colta: da una parte ci sono momenti in cui si ascoltano esplicite melodie di derivazione folcloristica partenopea, fresche, dinamiche, vivaci e per lo più cantate in dialetto (Il Flaminio fu dato al Teatro Nuovo di Napoli nel 1735), e dall’altra invece appaiono personaggi appartenenti ai ceti sociali più elevati, che si esprimono secondo le regole e le convenzioni dell’opera seria, cantando i loro nobili e rilevanti sentimenti in arie tripartite con “da capo”. Secondo titolo in programma sarà Adriano in Siria (10 e 12 giugno) al Teatro Pergolesi. Avrà la regia di Ignacio Garcia e sarà diretto e concertato ancora da Ottavio Dantone a capo dell’Accademia Bizantina; tra i cantanti figureranno: Marina Comparato, Anna Maria Dell’Oste, Lucia Cirillo, Nicole Heaston e Stefano Ferrari. Per interrompere l’atmosfera drammatica dell’opera, secondo l’abituale prassi esecutiva dell’epoca, sarà proposto l’intermezzo Livietta e Tracollo sempre di Pergolesi, con Monica Bacelli e Carlo Lepore. Adriano in Siria fu rappresentata a Napoli nel 1734 in occasione del compleanno della regina Elisabetta Farnese, ma ottenne scarso successo. Eppure Pergolesi vi mise molta cura nel comporla, soprattutto nello scrivere la parte di Farnaspe, pensata per le eccezionali doti virtuosistiche ed espressive del castrato Caffarelli, che ebbe modo così di farsi apprezzare in arie che prevedevano lunghe colorature, improvvisi salti di registro e difficili passaggi intessuti con alcuni strumenti dell’orchestra in qualità di solisti. Il Pergolesi Festival si chiuderà con l’oratorio La Fenice sul rogo (13 giugno) al Teatro Moriconi e affidato a specialisti della musica sei-settecentesca: i cantanti Roberta Invernizzi e Sonia Prina, il direttore Fabio Biondi e il suo Pergolesi's Il Flaminio ensemble Europa Galante. is on the programme in Jesi.

Each year the Romanian Academy invites fellows from the foreign cultural academies in Rome to show their work on its premises. The unifying theme this year is how the identities of tourists and vagabonds are formed by the society around them. What is it that determines how a particular culture identifies who are tourists and who are vagabonds, and who has the power to decide how each group is treated? About 50 fellows are participating this year and on the opening and closing evenings there will also be music and dance performances. On the opening night each visitor will be given a visa as either a tourist or a vagabond and will be treated accordingly. The Romanian Academy, Piazza José de S. Martino 1, www., More events at the foreign cultural academies are listed on our website

A trip to the zoo Margaret Stenhouse

Rome’s Biopark is a leading scientific institution for the preservation of endangered species

n 1998 Rome’s zoological garden – one of the oldest public zoos in the world – underwent a radical transformation. It was converted into the present Biopark, based on the principles of the American Gilman Foundation, co-founded in 1982 by philanthropist Howard Gilman and conservation biologist John Lukas to conserve and sustain rare and threatened species. The Biopark, in fact, is presently involved in 20 programmes for the reproduction in captivity of animals at risk of extinction. These include the mandrill baboon, the chimpanzee, the Iranian leopard, the Siberian tiger, the pygmy hippopotamus and the European bison. This year in particular, the Rome Biopark is involved in the campaign launched by the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria (EAZA) to save the major European carnivores: the bear, the lynx and the wolf. Whether or not you have children, the Biopark is a relaxing place to spend a day. Its 18 hectares of landscaped park, laid out at the beginning of last century in a corner of the Villa Borghese estate, are full of shady walkways lined with exotic shrubs and plants, where geese waddle freely across the paths. There is a lake swarming with acquatic birds, picnic tables, snack bars and children’s play areas. The cages and bars of the traditional one-time zoo are largely gone. Most of the animals are kept in spacious, open enclosures that strive to imitate the natural habitat and also allow them some degree of privacy. The Biopark is proud of its new bear compound where the three resident bears, Sandro, Luca and Nino, are housed in a 3,500 sqm area with a pool, cliffs and caves at their disposal. The bears have so many hiding places that we thought the den was empty till a keeper pointed out a shaggy heap of brown fur lying fast asleep among the bushes. Future plans include new accommodation for the lemurs and orangutans, planned for autumn 2010. The Biopark is home to over 1,000 animals belonging to 200 species, none of them born in the wild. A few, such as the elephants Nelly and Sofia, are long-time residents, belonging to the former zoological garden. Others are part of zoo exchange schemes and many are “rescue” animals, confiscated from smugglers, private collectors or travelling circuses. Any zoo, however, mainly attracts children. On the day we went, there were parties of primary school children everywhere, notebooks at the ready, trotting along with their teachers. The Biopark has made major efforts to render the place child-friendly. There are explanations geared especially to young visitors and many enclosures have viewing windows at child level. We were also pleased to find explanations in flawless English, which can be quite a rarity as many foreign visitors to Rome’s sites 26 May 2010

know only too well. In addition, blind visitors have been catered for, with panels in Braille set up along special itineraries. The Biopark star of the moment is the baby giraffe, Macchia, which was born on 28 September 2009. The giraffe family lives in a compound with an Indian-style pavilion that is one of the historic buildings of the original zoo. The modern touch is the glass viewing window in the high fence surrounding the enclosure and an upper terrace where visitors can watch the animals without disturbing them. While in the grounds of the Biopark, don’t miss the chance to pay a visit to the Museo Civico di Zoologia, which stands at the top of a flight of steps above the lake area. This is a scientific institute, with its own programme of lectures on conservation and protection of endangered species, but it is also geared to visiting children and school groups. Here you can wander through halls displaying the skeletons of all kinds of animals and birds and admire the bronze reproduction of the massive and scary head of “Stan”, the Tyrannosaurus Rex found in South Dakota in 1987. There are rows of display cases with insects, stuffed birds and animals and a series of rooms dedicated to courtship rituals and animal world sex life. If stuffed animals are not your thing, hasten on to the section on world environments, ranging from the Sahara desert to the frozen Poles, to learn some fascinating facts about life and survival. The newest exhibit in the museum is an example of the dreaded Curculionide beetle, which destroys fig trees and has now spread from Asia to Europe. This one was found in the Villa Borghese gardens and identified by museum staff on 1 April 2010. They ironically labelled it “Our April Fool”.
