Today we had a lecture on Pop Politics. Pop Politics infuses Politics and Pop Culture and the result is a lot like Hollywood in America: Loud, flashy and unnecessary. The Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi is a TV and media mogul worth 9 billion dollars. How does that happen? Anyhoo, he likes to talk about everything that he’s doing like when he had plastic surgery and had his fat made into a bar of soap. Crazy right? That’s the least of it. I am not here to air his dirty laundry and give him more free press, which is what he wants so I will move on. Ahem.
We went to officially visit the Castello Sforzesco today after class. It’s a very interesting place. There is a fab museum that has tons of neat things on display. You can read more about it http://www.milanocastello.it/ing/lungaRestaurato.html
In the evening we go to Old Fashioned again and it is a madhouse. I don’t enjoy any place when it is too crowded and crazy and this was all that and more. Italians like to party as much or more than we do!
Tomorrow – Day 16, 17 and 18 Family Formaggio, Corso Como and California Bakery
