Untitled[edit]

Actually I think that Mr Fini is still Deputy PM in addition of being Foreign Minister. This is what Italian newspapers said on the occasion of the appointment of Mr Follini as another Deputy PM. alessio 11:02, 4 Dec 2004 (UTC)


I have reverted the edits of Ellipsis4677 becouse he/she has mostly tried to remove some controversial aspects of the Fini's biography like:

  • Fini focusing on a campaign against illegal immigration
  • the fact that he in 1992 and 1994 praised Italy's wartime dictator Benito Mussolini "the greatest statesman of the twentieth century" and declared “Fascism has a tradition of honesty, correctness and good government”.
  • the fact that he was in Genoa during the 27th G-8 Summit and maintained close contact with the police and security forces. For at least some of this time, he was actually ensconced at police headquarters.

and so on.

Please cite sources for the above if you revert edits because of controversial points you claim are in factual evidence. Gashlicker 19:27, 20 November 2006 (UTC)



Fini's page is starting to become a farce. It's unacceptable for users to add unsubstantiated or biased information which only aim to put the politician in a bad light. Wikipedia is supposed to be a source of information, not of political propaganda.

His presence at the G-8 summit in Genoa is an excellent example of an urban legend purported by elements of the Italian far left, which was never proven and has been used to show that Fini, "the fascist", cooperated with the police, which are seen as an instrument of power by the state. This only one example and if anyone wants to revert to versions that have been saved in the meantime, I suggest that they make the effort to start looking for links which back up what they are stating.

Sex with the wife of a friend ?[edit]

I read that Fini had in an earlier part of his Life sex with the wife of a friend: http://www.taz.de/pt/2007/03/05/a0140.1/text Should this part of the article ?

  • I don't see why a rumor should be part of an encyclopedic entry? Your source is very leftwing anyway.Ellipsis4677 13:42, 5 March 2007 (UTC)

New version[edit]

The article has been renewed with a translation from it:Gianfranco Fini--Dans (talk) 22:04, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

Hi Ian Spackman, can you give me a hint on how to cleanup the article? Thanks. Bests,--Dans (talk) 15:21, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
I am sorry but all I can say is try to enlist a native speaker of English to give it the once over. Things like ‘Personal evenements’ are not comprehensible English. I would happily have done it myself (rather than adding the tag) except that I find Fini a fairly distasteful character and would not have trusted myself to do it in an ‘NPOV’ manner. All the best, though, Ian Spackman (talk) 15:48, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
I'm sorry for my English, but I did my best. I'll try to improve it again. By the other side, I'd like if you help me just correcting grammar & lexicon.
Please stop contributing in English. Your competence in English isn't adequate. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 78.13.251.156 (talk) 18:37, 7 October 2009 (UTC)
I wanted to upload a new version of the article exactly to show to non-Italian speaker the political evolution of Fini, in order to let people not be surprised if he is elected premier or President of the Republic next time (a joke going around in this months says that Fini is the best fit for the contended place of secretary of the Democratic party..)--Dans (talk) 17:39, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
Thank you for your kindness, mr. 78.*--Dans (talk) 17:02, 8 October 2009 (UTC)
