Silvio Berlusconi’s entry into politics was made known through a pre-recorded television message sent to all national television news programs on 26 january 1994.
In his message Berlusconi annunced his decision to Enter the field and presented his own political party Forza Italia.
Enter the field is a soccer metaphor that enphasized the role of Berlusconi as president of Ac Milan. The Discesa in campo speech is also spotted for the use of nylon to cover the camera during the recording of the message.
It is a common technique in film and photography to place a stocking or other sheer material over the camera lens to create a softening effect on the image. This smooths out skin tones and create a dreamy or romantic look. (Redazione)
