Bild calls 19-yr-old PdL coordinator 'loser' on front page

Anti-German rant makes him 'a second-generation clown'

Bild calls 19-yr-old PdL coordinator 'loser' on front page

Bolzano, May 24 - A 19-year-old coordinator for Silvio Berlusconi's People of Freedom Party (PdL) was slammed on the front page of the German newspaper Bild on Friday, featured in its list of "losers". Alessandro Bertoldi sparked the daily's ire when he harshly criticized Germany on his Facebook page after undergoing a series of police checks on a recent trip to Germany. Bertoldi apologised for his gesture. Bild called him a "second-generation clown", making reference to a notorious comment by German centre-left SPD chancellor candidate Peer Steinbrueck, who in February said he was "horrified by the victory of two clowns" in Italy's elections, referring to centre-right leader Berlusconi and anti-establishment comedian Beppe Grillo. Bertoldi reportedly works under the wing of PdL Bolzano MP Michaela Biancofiore, who currently serves as deputy secretary for public administration and simplification.
