Italian Media Blasts Jersey Shore

The Jersey Shore cast shouldn’t expect a warm welcome when they arrive in Italy to begin filming the fourth season of their MTV show. Jersey Shore recently started airing in Italy and has been met with outrage. Columnist Roberto Del Bove wrote in New Notzie newspaper, “They embody the worst stereotypes of Italians, multiplied by thousands and Americanized. Another writer, for the Rome-based publication Corriere della Sera, profiled the cast as having “slicked hair, exaggerated narcissism, boundless love for the family and outlandish eccentricity.” The national Italian-American organization, UNICO blasted the decision to film in Italy after it was announced, saying, “People used to go to the circus to see the freak show — that is what this will be. It will not only hurt Italians but all Americans . . . their outrageous, reprehensible behavior will make us look like buffoons and bimbos.” With the guys and gals heading to Italy, could we see more drama than normal on the show, not only between cast mates, but Italian people in general? Can’t wait for Season 4!
