From yesterday’s newspapers. After the critics from the Vatican to the movie “Caos Calmo”, triggered by the explicit scenes featuring Nanni Moretti and Isabella Ferrari, the director Steven Frears has declared:

“Why don’t you Italians get rid of the Vatican ? You can try to sell it to Berlusconi.”

Fascinating idea. And not too unrealistic, either. Synergies, common strategies, complementary market segments … the old tycoon could indeed be interested, even if Vatican’s audience must have taken quite a hit since the times of the former CEO, John Paul II.

Only, I have the impression the deal had already been concluded. Since quite some time, actually.
