As you probably already heard from the news the most important and powerful world leaders gathered in Abruzzo for the G8 summit. It was an idea of the Italian Government aimed to bring attention to the aftermath of the earthquake that hit L'Aquila last April. Apparently everything was kept quite informal in line with the Abruzzo spirit and culture... It was quite curious to see that even President Obama has an Abruzzese attitude, especially when he played basketball and took pictures with the local people. Not to mention the Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi (above), a true rockstar of politics, with hundreds of million of euros, dozens of beautiful girls around him (a couple of sex scandals too, which is good publicity in Italy!) and deep love for music (see video below). The icing on the cake was the presence of George Clooney and Bill Murray who came for a cup of coffee, some standing comedy (Bill Murray simulated sexual intercourses with the President of the L'Aquila Province) and the promise to shoot a movie in Abruzzo. So when in Abruzzo do as the Abruzzeses do! Ah ah ah ah.
Obviously, the next step would be to bring a big rock band such as AC/DC to play in Abruzzo... If we managed to bring the most powerful leaders to a table yesterday in L'Aquila to make them eat tradition Abruzzese food such as Guitar Spaghetti e Arrosticini skewers that proves that nothing is really impossible in this world!
