The Palermo Criminal Court seized a porn movie starring the Italian showgirl Sara Tommasi, her lawyer said .

The Court issued the order after the movie makers were accused by Miss Tommasi of kidnapping, drugs administration and rape.

Once a quite famous showgirl on Italian TV, Miss Tommasi had started to show an increasingly erratic behavior, often removing her clothes in public and even being thrown out a TV studio for that.

Miss Tommasi was involved in the former prime minister Silvio Berlusconi’s sex scandals.

Her case could revive an old debate on sexual exploitation of young women in Italian entertainment business, said to be imbued with a very sexist culture.

Mr. Berlusconi, himself an entertainment tycoon, is known for judging women mainly for their looks. Once, he ironically defined left-wing MP Rosy Bindi ‘beautiful rather than intelligent’, well knowing than Mrs. Bindi is not renowned for her looks.

Moreover, he routinely chose young showgirls as parliamentary candidates or even Ministers, the most famous case being former Minister Mara Carfagna and former regional MP Nicole Minetti.

While still a regional MP, Miss Minetti took part as a model to a bikini & lingerie fashion show in Milan 'to support Italian fashion industry'.
