HE may be a chaotic coward; totally irresponsible and fiscally incontinent – but your Italian sure knows how to spice up politics.
After the rollercoaster reign of colourful Premier Silvio Berlusconi, it looked like Eytie politics would become a lot duller with the politics - after no fewer than THREE hardcore porn stars joined the struggle for high office.
Luana Borgia, Milly D’abbraccio and Amandha Fox have all declared they have what it takes to become mayor in cities in the south of Italy.
Ms Fox and Ms Borgia have set their sights on Taranto, and Ms D’abbraccio is hoping to take Torre del Greco.
Ms Fox, who is Polish by birth, announced her plans to clean up the notoriously polluted city by booting out heavy industry and transforming it into a version of Las Vegas.
Ms Fox said she would develop tourism by building casinos with hotels, restaurants and nightclubs, as well as creating an internationally known event to be named “Taranto Sex”, which would take place twice a year. Observers suggested, though, that her success in beating Ms Borgia was more likely due to her performance in last month’s public pole-dancing competition between the two rivals, which replaced the more usual political debate.
But all three can look to the success of Hungarian-born porn star La Cicciolina, who became an Italian MP in 1987.
