Italian Culture Minister Sando Bondi is about to resign in the next couple of days due to the scandal involving Bulgarian-born actress Michelle Bonev and other issues, according to Italian media.

Over 200 Italian MPs have signed a declaration wanting Bondi's ousting.

The turmoil involving Bulgarian born actress and director Michelle Bonev, was initiated by Italian media, which claimed that she received a "fabricated" award created just for her at the Venice Film Fest for her movie „Farewell to Mom". It was those reports which triggered the demands for Bondi's resignation.

Bulgaria's Culture Minister Vezhdi Rashidov already accepted two resignations over the same case, handed by Alexander Donev, head of the Bulgarian National Film Center andBulgaria's Deputy Culture Minister, Dimitar Derelviev.

Meanwhile, the historical House of the Gladiators collapsed at Pompeii on November 6. Outrage over the historical losses fueled the calls for Bondi's resignation.

Recently, Italy's Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, who is considered a close ally of Bondi, barely survived a no-confidence vote.

Highlander,

"Ms. Bonev's company Romantica Entertainment has never produced anything that has to do with culture or film production. The company deals with "personal" escort service for guests at some fashionable hotels f.ex. Sheraton Sofia."

Right you are. But I would like to mention that Ms Bonev's company has recently diversified its field of activity, especially since they could assure the valuable services of Ali Baba and the 40 callboys.

Ms. Bonev's company Romantica Entertainment has never produced anything that has to do with culture or film production. The company deals with "personal" escort service for guests at some fashionable hotels f.ex. Sheraton Sofia.
No minister or official should need to resign over a questionable film award, but spending public money on hookers and call girls is in a different league and does not leave much room to escape.
If anyone anywhere in Bulgaria and Italy can bring evidence of anything related to fine arts or serious film production made by Bonev and her company-then please come forward. So far we have only seen dribbling and horny old politicians caught with their trousers down, trying to help an outdated escort lady bring about fame and glory out of nothing.
But one thing is for sure- she is Bulgarian and she has the full understanding of how to fake achievement and success. No wonder she is popular with geriatric politicians who's
only achievement for their countries is to be seen in hotels and nightclubs with paid escort girls.
