A new craze is sweeping post-earthquake Italy. Victims of the recent earthquake, which struck the country at 0130 GMT on Monday morning, are "doing the Berlusconi" in an effort to snub the effects of the earthquake and show their inherent strength and superiority. The Italian earthquake victims are copying a recent snub which took place at a NATO summit in France, in which the Italian PM kept German chancellor Angela Merkel waiting and instead continued a conversation on his mobile - the incident was carried on live TV and left Ms Merkel publicly irritated. Inspired Italians are now causing a new craze to sweep across the nation, copying their revered leader even in times of such tragedy.
