Non-Italians have to understand where this is coming from. Il "Giornale" is a newspaper owned by Berlusconi, its general aim is to disseminate propaganda and discredit political rivals. I wouldn't take seriously anything coming from it.
This wasn't always the case as Il Giornale was founded in 1972 by the journalist Indro Montanelli, who is considered as perhaps the greatest Italian journalist of all times.
