Berlusconi airs “The Great Beauty” in record time

Channel 5, Berlusconi’s flagship TV network, confirmed that it will air this evening Paolo Sorrentino’s “The Great Beauty”, fresh winner of the Academy Award.

The decision was criticized by the associations of Italian cinemas, already struggling with the crisis, the competition by home theaters and Internet and the costly transition to digital projection.

It probably aims to show that Berlusconi’s empire is still alive and kicking, despite its political, financial and sport troubles (the Milan football team is just tenth in the Italian championship).
