And how about MPs waving a sea bass in Parliament: or, again, your 86-year-old former prime minister making videos on TikTok?

If the answer is no, you are in the right place.

Discover with us the insanity of Italian politics, having fun like you never thought you would.

Behind @CrazyItalianPol

Crazy Ass Moments in Italian Politics was created in March 2022, inspired by the original American version @ampol_moment. Behind the computer screen is a man with an internet connection, passion for politics (but not enough to run for office!) and a desire to entertain. Nothing more.
