Help Us Unlock the Dirty Secrets of the Italian Prime Minister's Orgy Parties

Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi's "bunga bunga" orgy parties are completely notorious at this point, but today Italy's biggest newspaper published new graphic accounts of what goes on inside. The problem is, we can't read them!

Berlusconi is currently on trial for allegedly paying to have sex with an underage girl at one of his parties. Italian newspaper Corriere Della Sera published excerpts from the police interviews given by beauty queens Ambra Battilana and Chiara Danese about one of these sexy soirees, but the article is in Italian. I tried to give it the Google Translate treatment, but it was pretty worthless:

Part of the game of the statue of Priapus, which sweetened the description here is like the below: "The girls squirmed, danced, sang "Thank God for Silvio", were made by the president kissing her breasts, touched him in private parts, and then did the same with faith. We were shocked, in a situation bigger than us. At one point, Berlusconi, visibly delighted, said, "then you're ready for the bunga bunga?", And all the girls screamed in unison "Siiiii '". As the group moves and climbs a ladder, "Berlusconi behind us, we put his hands on his buttocks," not a help (Amber says) but "a groping on the buttocks, and repeated." Arrive in the spa increasingly perplexed ("But we have to do," said my friend, we must give it?"), Clare sees "the girls dancing in a rather vulgar "with" very short dresses as a nurse, to nurse," the very exposed breasts, "a whip", and "closer to Berlusconi as touched and were touched by them, "a" dancing while Berlusconi kissed her breasts.

See, it doesn't make any sense, but if there are really naked girls climbing on ladders and dressing as nurses and whipping each other in spas, we really need to know about it. That's where you guys come in. We're sure we have an Italian-savvy (and also perverted) reader who can give us the down and dirty on the bunga and bunga. Leave us a full translation in the comments and you'll not only win our hearts, but you'll make all the other dirty-minded orgy lovers out there very happy!

Here's the full article. Now get to work!

«I complimenti del presidente Berlusconi furono talmente intensi che Fede, non so se come battuta o meno, gli disse: "Eh, mangia nel piatto tuo che io mangio nel piatto mio(...)". Forse nelle sue intenzioni io dovevo essere destinata a lui e Ambra a Berlusconi». Il quale, «dopo l'ultima barzelletta sconcia si fece portare una statuetta di Priapo» (personaggio della mitologia classica simbolo dell'esuberanza sessuale) «e la fece girare tra le ragazze», chiedendo loro «un gioco sconcio al quale né io né Ambra ci prestammo».
Proprio mentre l'altro ieri al 1° piano del Tribunale il presidente del Consiglio arringa i cronisti sulle «elegantissime cene» di Arcore, al 5° piano della Procura due ragazze piemontesi di 19 anni, Chiara Danese e Ambra Battilana, consegnano invece ai pm la descrizione più diretta ed esplicita dei bunga bunga del premier mai fatta nell'inchiesta Ruby. Più ancora della compagna di scuola di Minetti, sinora la teste più neutra.

Per la prima volta, infatti, in almeno due ragazze si rompe il cordone di negazioni opposte dalle 32 giovani qualificate dai pm nel capo d'imputazione di Lele Mora, Emilio Fede e Minetti come prostitute convogliate dal terzetto ad Arcore. E il racconto è sorprendente anche per la genesi: non lo scoprono i pm, bensì lo portano le due ragazze, confermando negli interrogatori di lunedì le memorie del 4 aprile, benché riguardanti la notte del 22-23 agosto 2010, e stilate dopo aver consultato un avvocato che dicono di ignorare sia deputata dell'Idv di Di Pietro, Patrizia Bugnano. L'innesco, stando al racconto delle 19enni provenienti dalle selezioni di Miss Italia e con agente quel Daniele Salemi già emerso in contatto con Mora, è dato sia dalle maldicenze alimentate in piccoli paesi dai loro nomi «equiparati sui giornali alle escort», sia da un «effetto boomerang» di Berlusconi: «Uno degli elementi che mi hanno spinto a prendere questa decisione - esordisce Chiara davanti ai pm Forno e Sangermano - è la posizione che ha pubblicamente assunto il presidente Berlusconi, il quale in più occasioni ha definito "cene eleganti" le serate che per quanto mi risulta avevano tutt'altra natura, e per di più ha difeso alcune ragazze del suo "giro" che avevano avuto atteggiamenti sconvenienti, mentre non ha ritenuto di spendere una parola a favore nostra che ci eravamo comportate in tutt'altro modo».

Chiara e Ambra spiegano di essere state presentate nell'agosto 2010 da Salemi a Fede, «che subito si mostrò entusiasta di noi, disse "vanno benissimo", non ci richiese l'effettuazione di alcuna prova ma si mostrò deciso a sceglierci come "meteorine" a 5.000 euro a settimana». Seguono ristorante con Fede, battute a doppio senso, «esame del fondoschiena», promessa di risentirsi. E in effetti la sera del 22 agosto, senza prima saperlo, con Salemi e poi con Fede finiscono ad Arcore. La cena «con una quindicina di persone» (da tempo individuate dai pm con i tabulati) è animata dalle «barzellette sconce del premier», alle quali «Fede con piccole gomitate ci spingeva a ridere nel coro» di «tutti i presenti che scoppiavano a ridere in maniera eccessiva e forzata».

Parte il gioco della statuetta di Priapo, del quale qui si edulcora la descrizione al pari del prosieguo: «Le ragazze si dimenavano, ballavano, cantavano "meno male che Silvio c'è", si facevano baciare i seni dal presidente, lo toccavano nelle parti intime, e poi facevano lo stesso con Fede. Eravamo scioccate, in una situazione più grande di noi. A un certo punto Berlusconi, visibilmente contento, disse "allora siete pronte per il bunga bunga?", e tutte le ragazze in coro hanno urlato "Siiii!"». Mentre il gruppo si sposta e sale su una scala, «Berlusconi dietro di noi ci poggiò le mani sui glutei», non un aiuto (dice Ambra) ma «un palpeggiamento sul sedere, e reiterato». Arrivate nel centro benessere sempre più perplesse («Ma che dobbiamo fare, disse la mia amica, dobbiamo darla?»), Chiara vede «le ragazze ballare in maniera piuttosto volgare» con «vestiti da infermiera molto corti, da crocerossina», «i seni molto scoperti», «anche un frustino», e «avvicinandosi a Berlusconi lo toccavano e si facevano toccare nelle parti intime», una «ballava mentre Berlusconi la baciava sul seno».

Chiara e Ambra dicono di essere rimaste paralizzate, «mentre Fede e Berlusconi incitavano le altre ragazze a coinvolgerci in questo "gioco" con parole quali "dai spogliatele... spogliatevi... ballate"». E quando spiegano di volersene andare, «Fede risponde: "Se volete andare via, va bene, ma non pensate di poter fare le meteorine o Miss Italia". Berlusconi, che sedeva accanto, annuiva senza dire una parola». In auto, Fede di colpo cambia e esalta il «nostro non essere come le altre: brave, avete superato una prova». E l'sms «grazie per la fantastica serata!» dal telefonino di Chiara a Fede? «In realtà lo mandò Salemi, per assicurarmi la selezione a Miss Italia, quando ancora non gli avevamo raccontato la serata».

Update: Commenter bytememehard helped us figure it out.

"Prime minister Berlusconi's compliments were so pressing that Fede told him – I don't know whether it was a joke – ‘Hey, you eat what's on your plate and I'll eat what's on mine'. He might have meant that I was for him and Ambra was for Berlusconi". And "after the last dirty joke, [the premier] had a little statue of Priapus [a figure from classical mythology representing sexual exuberance – Ed.] brought in" and "had it passed round among the girls", asking them to play "a dirty game that neither I nor Ambra took part in".

While the prime minister was telling reporters on the first floor of the courthouse about those "very elegant dinners" at Arcore, on the fifth floor of the public prosecutor's office, two 19-year-old girls from Piedmont, Chiara Danese and Ambra Battilana, were giving magistrates the most explicit description of his "bunga bunga" entertainments made so far in the course of investigations. It was even more explicit than the most neutral witness so far, Nicole Minetti's schoolfriend.

For the first time, at least two girls have opened a gap in the wall of denials erected by the 32 young women described, in charges brought by investigating magistrates against Lele Mora, Emilio Fede and Nicole Minetti, as prostitutes directed to Arcore by the trio. Equally surprising is the way the description was obtained, not by magistrates but directly from the two girls, who confirmed under questioning on Monday the statements made on 4 April about the night of 22-23 August 2010. These were drafted after consultation with lawyer Patrizia Bugnano, whom they claim not to know is a deputy for Italy of Values (IDV).

Both 19-year-olds took part in selections for the Miss Italia contest with agent Daniele Salemi, already known to be in contact with Lele Mora. What prompted their statements is said to be both nasty small-town gossip that "put them on the same level as prostitutes" and a reaction to Mr Berlusconi. Ms Danese told magistrates Forno and Sangermano: "One of the things that made me take this decision was the public stance taken by the prime minister, who on several occasions has referred to as "elegant dinners" evenings that in my view were of a completely different kind, and has also defended some of the girls from his circle who behaved improperly, while he has failed to say so much as one word on behalf of us, who behaved very differently".

Ms Danese and Ms Battilana said that they were introduced by Mr Salemi in August 2010 to Mr Fede, "who was immediately enthusiastic and said ‘They'll do nicely'. He didn't ask us to do an audition. Instead, he said he was going to take us on as weather girls at €5,000 a week". There followed a double meaning-laced dinner with Mr Fede, an "inspection of posteriors" and a promise to get in touch. On 22 August, they saw Mr Salemi and then Mr Fede, ending up at Arcore without realising it. The dinner "with about fifteen people", all identified by investigators some time ago from phone records, was enlivened by "the premier's dirty jokes", which "Fede nudged us to laugh at with the rest of them" and "everyone burst into forced, overdone laughter".

Then the statuette of Priapus was brought out. We have toned down the description of the game and its aftermath. "The girls were wiggling, dancing, singing [the People of Freedom anthem – Trans.] ‘Thank Goodness for Silvio', letting the prime minister touch their breasts, touching his private parts, and then doing the same with Fede. We were shocked. The situation was bigger than us. At a certain point, a visibly satisfied Berlusconi said ‘So are you ready for bunga bunga?' and all the girls screamed ‘Yes!'" As the group moved away up a staircase, "Berlusconi behind us put his hands on our buttocks". He wasn't helping them up – said Ms Battilana – he was "feeling our bottoms, and doing it more than once". The increasingly puzzled girls were now in a wellness center ("But what's this about?" my friend asked, "Are we supposed to do it?"). Chiara saw "the girls dancing in a rather vulgar way" in "very short nurse's uniforms, Red Cross ones", "their breasts very bare", "a jockey's whip", and "they went over to Berlusconi to touch him and let him touch their private parts". One "was dancing while Berlusconi kissed her on the breast".

Chiara and Ambra say they felt paralysed "as Fede and Berlusconi urged the other girls to get us involved in the ‘game' with expressions like ‘go on, take their clothes off... take your clothes off... dance'". When they said they wanted to leave, "Fede replied: ‘If you want to go, that's OK, but don't think you're going to be weather girls or Miss Italia'. Berlusconi, who was sitting next to him, nodded without saying anything". In the car, Mr Fede changed all of a sudden and praised "our not being like the others: ‘Well done. You've passed the test'". What about the text message sent from Ms Danese's mobile phone to Mr Fede to say "Thanks for a fantastic evening!"? "Actually, Salemi sent it to make sure I was selected for Miss Italia before we told him how the evening went".
