Weather forecasting, Italian style

TV is one of the funniest aspects of Italy. Italian TV does not stop to offer astonishing examples of how strange is the daily life here.

Consider weather forecasting, for instance. In normal places, this is something low profile. I mean, the TV presents someone who talks about sun, snow, temperature etc. This someone can be a man, a woman, sometimes funny, sometimes not so much.

But here, in Italy, if you watch RAI Uno you are going to see something quite unusual. There is an Italian air force officer playing the role of weather guy. And this officer, devoted to his TV celebrity job, applies even hair gel! Check please the picture below. If the air force officer works for the TV channel, who works for the Italian air force? Some nice weather girl? That’s Italy: nothing is like it should be.

    Oh my God!

    In Italy weahter forecasts are managed by Air Forces; RAI (public TV) has an greement with Air Force to let a military the role to tell us forecasts. It’s not strange. Do you prefer to see a girl (or a naked girl)? You can use satellite TV to watch to US televisions…

      Dear Pitone,

      First of all, thanks for your comments.
      In many countries weather forecasting is indeed one of Air Force tasks, for obvious security reasons. The issue here is why present a military weather forecasting to a civilian audience. It is as strange as having a civilian in bikinis presenting the weather forecast for Italian Air Force pilots.
