La Manovra / The Maneuver

Maneuver? Solved!

Beh, in fondo anche fare inversione ad U sull’autostrada è una manovra… – Up to few months ago, Berlusconi said that crisis had not attained Italy’s economy. In the last two months something went wrong, so he’s looking for some money out of new taxes. We call this “The Maneuver”. In italian, parking a car (or a steamroller) is a maneuver too.


We stitched pockets on italian hands.

“Non metteremo le mani nelle tasche degli italiani…” – Speaking about the economic maneuver that his government is preparing, Berlusconi said that he will not put his hands in Italians’ pockets. Maybe he’s going to stitch them on Italians’ hands!
