Just watched the film about a notorious Italian politician - Giulio Andreotti. It may be appropriate to call him Italy's Richard Daley but we've already established that I see Daley's ghost in all public corruption. And in the grocery store.
Despite its popularity Andreotti dismisses the film, saying he believes he will in the end be judged “on his record”. So the mysteries remain. I asked him if was true that when he turned 90 he had said he would “take his secrets to the grave”.
“True. In my life I have made many, shall we say, delicate choices. Some people played a double game, claiming to be on one side while being on another. Some things you don't see at the time because you are blinded by the light. You think you understood everything, then you see you didn't. But the past is the past. It is better to look to the future.”
