Beppe Severgnini Speaks at Georgetown University

Posted on: under Personal

The fun and brilliant journalist and author, Beppe Severgnini, entertained a large crowd on Monday, November 7th, at Georgetown University. A mix of students, professors, writers and admirers sat and listened to him speak about his latest book, Mamma Mia! Berlusconi’s Italy Explained for Posterity and Friends Abroad.

 

Beppe recounted working in Washington, D.C. and living near Georgetown University. His anecdotes then lead the crowd into the story about his latest book. Beppe described writing the book for those, “born in the 90s and for friends abroad.” The author explained  the success of Italy’s former Prime Minister, Silvio Berlusconi.  He joked that his first book, La Bella Figura was a 101 Course, but Mamma Mia! is a Ph.D. course of the Italian mind.” After the talk, Beppe kindly signed books for his fans.
