Why I will never understand Italian media

I’ve just been reading the coverage of the woeful Italy-Spain game over at Corriere dello Sport, and not for the first time I’ve come across a feature that makes me wonder what they put in the water of Italian media companies. Under the title “Beauties on the sidelines”, Corriere has a selection of 40 shots of female Italy supporters in the crowd in Vienna tonight. Unusual in itself by British standards, perhaps. Then the Italian media twist – you have to vote Yes or No on whether they’re hot or not.
