Roberto Ruggiero, Italian of great culture and fine storyteller, has participated and still participates in great television debates in broadcasts of national resonance. A connoisseur of Italian and international social life, recognized and envied playboy despite himself, he is a man of elegant normality and refined manners, as well as a passionate frequenter of the Ville Lumière, of which he knows as few people the customs and habits and especially the "art de vivre", among the inspiring reasons of his life...

imagesFrom the Countess of Castiglione, to Madame de Montespan, Madame de Pompadour, Carla Bruni... what do you think of the role of women linked to powerful men in France?

- Lately, there is always the doubt that it is the woman who gives the strength to decide... I think the woman is fascinated by power so that she can exercise it without responsibility.

What are your thoughts on Catherine Deneuve's position on the sexual harassment business?bc3b22e1250de7a5aed5c4c52beef2f8

- If a woman wants you, all you do to get her is "seduction"!.... If a woman doesn't want you, all you do to possess her is "violence". Deneuve is morally intelligent proof of this misunderstanding.

As a recognized successful playboy, what do you think of Parisian women?

- Extraordinary women for the delicate illusion of making you believe that you are the one to conquer them.  

9721b448ded1fe9a5c4501df08c39fdfThe philosopher Marramao says: "The revolution of 1789 forged the personality of the French (and French women)". What do you think, Roberto, about the personality of French women and the way they speak and intervene in important issues?

- Everything could be born from Marie Antoinette who (it is said) with the people at the door asking "bread! bread!", said to her husband Louis XVI: "Sire, if they don't have bread let's give them our brioches"... Great woman! In trials, the seduction of truth or presumed truth wins, and truth is woman, ergo!?

Brigitte - Social circles

Bonsoir, my name is Brigitte. I’m the ultimate Parisian. There isn’t a VIP evening that I miss out on. When I was 18, I hunted autographs and stole photos of stars walking the streets of Paris or in concert. Vanessa Paradis, Catherine Deneuve, Jean Dujardin... they’re all in my book. It wasn’t very difficult as my parents produced concerts and I grew up in this fascinating world. I’ve turned it into a profession since I’m a people journalist! I now set up meetings with the stars and can question them without their bodyguards getting rid of me like they did in the past. I’d love to tell you more about these so French VIPs…
