This sharp and rueful dissection of power and prestige in Berlusconi’s Italy captures the surreal nature of life in a celebrity obsessed nation where politics are controlled by the owner of the country’s media empire. Co-opting critics, steamrolling opposition and pandering to an all-too-content public in ways that stagger belief, the prime minister has perfected a 21st century version of the dream factory that shows no signs of slowing down.
