As children

we used to hide here.

They never found out.

We were here for hours.

When it got dark,

we were afraid to go down.

- Afraid of what?

- Of pounding.


Have you ever tried fresh milk?

It very good.

You drink first.

How nice.

Looks abandoned, right'?

But no, it's just asleep.

Angela, I think I drank

too much wine.

That doesn't harm,

it is so light.

- Come in the water.

- No.

- Come on!

- Stop it, I have bathed!

Come on.

I was always here as a child.

I loved to watch myself

in the water.

We had no mirrors in the house.

Only here I could see my body.

Have you watched yourself

down there'?

No. I don't think I have.

I went to a convent school.

We were swimming

with huge shirts.

It was forbidden to look

at a naked body.

Look at me.

Look at yourself.

What do you see'?


Take off your panties.

Spread your legs.

Touch yourself.

Isn't it good?

The awful events in Hungary were

not at all caused by reactionary...

The Magyar people

rebelled against oppression

with the sole intention

to regain freedom.

Like the people of East Berlin

and Poznan.

It is appropriate that our city

shares the pain with

the generous people of Hungary.

Why Vicenza, having fought 1948

in the Perun dream of freedom...

- It's absurd!

- It's a shame!

Vicenza is qualified

to appreciate and admire

all this struggle and suffer.

- Liar!

- I ask the word.


The word has councilor Anselmi.

Our party, while admitting

that the Hungarian people

have gone through a period

of economic hardship,

believes that we should

clearly state

that the responsibility

for this situation

is only caused by...

- Let him speak!

The inability of the leaders...

and not by socialism itself!

Let me speak!

We don't accept that

the right to protest
