…and today he is in an italian newspaper for a “family business”. Don’t be suspicious, it’s not his family. Not yet, at least.
This is the story: Mr. Bondi is in love with Manula Repetti, who happens to be a Member of Parliament in the same party of Mr. Bondi. No problem with this.
They’re in love but not married yet, as they both have a previous marriage that hasn’t reached divorce. No problem with this too.
Italian newspaper “Il Fatto Quotidiano” has discovered that The Culture Minister (Yes, Bondi) has signed a 25K euros per year contract with a Mr. Roberto Indaco as a consultant for Theatre and Fashion. The fact that Mr. Indaco is the soon to be divorced former husband of Mr Bondi’s girlfriend is a problem for you? Not for Mr. Bondi, it seems. Nor is the fact that his Minister employes another Mr. Indaco, a Fabrizio this time, who happens to be the son of Roberto Indaco and Manuela Repetti.
I’ll summarize some of the answers they gave:
- “I don’t think he’s had any help”
- “There’s nothing so exceptional about a young man working for the Government.”
- “Yes, I know he is the Minister, but it’s a coincidence…”
- “I want to explain…”
- “It’s a painful story…”
- “I demand respect. It’s a painful and bitter story, an absolutely private story…”
