An Italian Fashionista’s Diary – 30 Days in Milan – Day 14 and 15 Pop Politics, the Castle and Old Fashioned part 2


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
