When police broke into Gelli's country-seat was found the list of P2 masonic
lodge and the plain named " National safety ". The name of Berlusconi was
into this list . The plain foresaw, to save Italy by comunist danger,
control upon media,
presidential political system with majoritarian electoral mechanism,
governmental control upon magistracy, limitation of syndacal freedom,
neo-liberist prescription for
italian economical problems demolishing welfare state and a strong voluntary
This plain appears in great share  in FI political program ( FI is the
Berlusconi' s party).Berlusconi's FININVEST TV, shaped in american style
with programs and movies bought exclusively in US, grew in deregulation
protected by Craxi who hoped to became president in a presidential system.

parties managed its part of power ,trade unions too, while the pubblic debt
grow up whitout
limits for financing feeble industrial system and guaranteing the social peace.

mobilitations seen in Italy, since 20 years. Actually in Italy there a
thecnical government with a clear right connotation leaning by strongest
left party, PDS, that stop popular opposition and appears more assuranced
than Berlusconi for international finance : the game is  stil open.
The new comunist party, PRC is still an opinion party without organitation
and claer ideological identity, although it is growing electorally
(10%),while workers autonomous organitations grow ( COBAS) and interesting
function have young social centers where, expecially in urban boundaries a
skethed antagonist culture and policy is developed.
