The macho Italian broke out with sexist insults against the new minister of Agriculture, Teresa Bellanova , of the Democratic Party, "rea" of being sworn in on Thursday before the president of the Republic with a blue dress electric. The case became viral, with a knock-on effect for its detractors, showing that the machismo Italian is declining.
Bellanova, age 61, was a trade unionist and a political little-known, but it has become the most famous character of the new Administration because the italians have discovered a determined woman, full of courage, with a sense of humor and a rich personal history. As a teenager he worked hard from sun up to sun down in the field as a laborer, especially in the collection of the tomato.
Went to school until the age of 14 . He became a trade unionist to defend them for 20 years to their peers from exploitation in Brinsidi, region of Apulia, south of Italy.EFE
many were surprised to see a woman as Bellanova at the top of the power and attacked fiercely in the social networks for these reasons: it is a woman, and with silhouette "curvy" , vowed in a dress with electric blue and only has the diploma of graduate school . The attack left Daniele Capezzone, the former secretary of the Italian Radicals and exportavoz of Forza Italy, Berlusconi, with a tweet in which he said that the minister was disguised as: "what Carnival? What about Halloween?". The many insults and criticisms, Bellanova responded on Twitter with irony: " The true elegance is to respect one's own state of mind : yesterday I felt keen, electric blue, and ruffles, and so I presented myself". Later, with the flood of reactions, Bellanova not be put off. "To see that the blue yesterday electrified many, I wanted to try with a new outfit: a blouse with black dots, What do you think?", published.
The issue has not been a banality. Bellanova became a trending topic in Italy and, in the great debate that has taken place, have supported the minister plenty of people and political leaders, from the right to the left. It is worth noting the applause he has received from Enzo Miccio , an icon of style and fashion, tv presenter and organizer of weddings, commenting positively their appearance in the jura. "A dress with organza and chiffon with small ruffles, in a beautiful blue, perfect for your silhouette. Combined masterfully with open shoes black. For me, perfect," noted Miccio, known for his intransigence on matters of style and elegance.The photo that Bellanova published on Twitter
The new minister has a long political experience: more than ten years in the Parliament and undersecretary at the ministry of Labour and economic Development, managing the crisis industrial complex. That is why he is not afraid of the insults. "If I was not afraid of threats with guns, much less now some poor behind a computer," he said. But the minister acknowledge that you have sense anger : "If one day I go crazy and I present to you Miss Italy, you have the right to criticize me for my appearance, but if I'm in the institutions I have to judge by what I do there. We have to restore the smile to this country".
Bellanova have been given a lesson. Thousands of men and women have supported her, it was a beautiful reaction that has buried the message of machismo. Has won the battle with his sense of irony and life experience, as the crowning as the minister of Agriculture, a career that began precisely in the field as a laborer exploited. Many recognise that will surely your experience of life and professional is worth more than a couple of university degrees.Updated Date: 13 September 2019, 05:00
