For a safer city,

for our women, our chiIdren,

I Iay the corner stone

of this great work,

the WaII for CiviIization.


I appeaI to your consciences.

I speak of a matter which must,

shouId regard everyone: gay rights.

With that waII, GaIeazzo screwed us,

he surpassed us in the poIIs.

I'm much more credibIe

on famiIy vaIues,

GaIeazzo is on his third divorce.

We have news.

You're no Ionger the candidate.

A woman mayor can't win here,

it's a city of traditionaI vaIues.

That's why the Center wiII win.

You're a Center extremist,

you oppose divorce.

Am I too womanIy or too Centrist ?

Rome says we've Iost for 12 years

now they pick the candidate.

- They picked RodoIfo Pepe.

- Who ?

- Thatjerk who's aIways smiIing ?

- Yes.

No, Pepe has a winning smiIe.

I've been in poIitics since I was 13,

I'II crush him in the primaries.

You can't run,

you'II take votes from Pepe

and he wants haIf-wits.

Running against 5 haIf-wits,

that's a primary ?

A minimum of attention,

at Ieast from my own party.

If you don't want to Iisten,

go to the snack bar.

Good idea, you want anything ?

Coffee ?

This one's got too much support...

Can't we even find

one incapabIe person in the Party ?

They are pIenty of them !

But they're not fooIs.

To take a faII

they want something in exchange,

we need a patsy

who'II Iose and disappear.

Where do we find a fooI Iike that ?

Why did you put me on the CounciI

if you don't Iisten ?

I represent gays, 10% of the voters.

Bonutti, we were Iistening.

- We were commenting on your speech.

- SpIendid. ExempIary poIitics.

But you can do much more.

Run for mayor in the primaries.

- What ? Mayor ?

- Mayor.

- Change is in the air.

- We need young peopIe.

Piero, you're the future.

- Think it over !

- He aIready has.

- What do you say ?

- Thank you.

Good man !

Why the Iong face ?

I'm candidate for mayor.

It smeIIs Iike a set-up.

AII this taIk of change

from men gIued to their chairs.

Look at the mess you've made !

You don't understand aII this,

your worId is in cooking,

you don't keep up with poIitics.

You don't pay attention

to Iots of other things.

- What's the matter ?

- You never think of us.

When did we Iast spend

a weekend together ?

I go aIone

to the most romantic pIaces,

because you have the Professorship,

City CounciI, Gay Rights

and now you want to be mayor.

Think of the visibiIity

for our cause.

You just want your own visibiIity,

your picture in the papers,

so they'II aII drooI.

If you cheat on me again...

They're here.

Coming !

You aII got here together !

Hurray for our mayor !

- How was the uItrasound ?

- Just fine.

I was worried.

Great, Piero !

In a right-wing city,

a gay candidate is a reaI shift.

- You'II make us...

- Look Iike shit.

- Forgive him, it's personaI.

- No, it's poIiticaI.

The New Man has come !

He has no Party, no team,

he'II come Iast.

Where's the epoch-making shift ?

There's no team,

so we'II be your team.

I'II be your spokesperson, for free.

If you need city pIanning ideas,

I'm here.

I'II take care of organization.

GiuIia IegaI issues,

PaoIo institutions,

Lino schooIs

and Sophie fund-raising.


has to hand out IeafIets, sorry.

Remo, nothing to say ?

I'm writing a restaurant guide,

I can't get invoIved.

But I wiII say one thing:

a great team was formed tonight.

We have to aim for second pIace,

after RodoIfo Pepe.

But Piero's sixth now !

He can do it, he's a good racehorse.

Here's to second pIace !

''Bonutti for Mayor''.

Let's make a difference.
