Renato Brunetta, minister for innovation and public administration, has decided to use facebook to chase the “fanulloni”, literally “those-who-do-nothing”.
The Corriere della Sera reports that the minister’s reasoning is that civil servants in Italy spend, and therefore waste, a lot of their time on facebook.
Consequently, he decided to fight this war on the “fanulloni’s” turf and opened a page on facebook. So far he as attracted more than 15 000 followers. It is not clear though, how his presence on facebook will somehow halt the presumed downward spiral in productivity.
One comment reads:
a proposito di fannulloni: che è andato a fare su facebook, a perdere tempo? 🙂
Speaking of “fanulloni”: what is he doing on facebook: wasting time?
