Annunziata down

Lucia Annunziata announced today her resignation from RAI Presidency.

With an easy joke, (perhaps not obvious in English) one can say it was an azione annunziata (announced action).

Mrs. Annunziata took office in the worst possible way; deciding in few minutes to replace the previous candidate, which was supported by many, with the exception of Mr. Berlusconi.

Many people predicted then a brief and unpleasant career, and so it was.
Why she decided to face such a foreseeable fate is not clear. Probably, she had strong pressure and assurances. Most likely, there was the lure for power, status and money.

Unfortunately, she damaged not only herself but the slight remains of democracy in Italy.

    At the time, many people predicted a brief and unpleasant career for her, as turned out to be the case.

    Probably, she faced strong pressure and assurances…

    Unfortunately, she has not only damaged herself but also the slight remains of a chance of democracy in Italy.
