Italian senators lobby for ice cream
Sunday, June 10, 2007
Two Italian senators, Rocco Buttiglione (UDC) and Albertina Soliani, (L'Ulivo), on behalf of many other colleagues, forwarded a request to Senate's administrators on June 8th for ice cream in the Senate's cafeteria.
The text of the request is very concise:
Three of the senators are administrators who will decide about the request: senator Gianni Nieddu, Ulivo; senator Romano Comincioli, Forza Italia and South Tyrol senator Helga Thaler.
Last March, Senate's president, Franco Marini, allowed senators to hold a wine sommelier course in Palazzo Madama, Senate's seat, and previously senators got regional (and then provincial too) speciality during the "special gastronomic weeks".
