|Rose Island will stream from December 9th!|
The 400 square meter island, built in 1967 had a restaurant, bar, nightclub, souvenir shop and a post office! It even had its currency. The island was swiftly invaded by the police as Italian government saw in it the owner's intention to build a tourist hotspot and avoid taxes. Italian navy destroyed it with explosives in 1969. Just one death was registered - the owner's dog.
The poor pooch!! That makes me sad, although the rest of this looks hilarious. I can’t believe it’s a true story.ReplyDelete
The pooch allegedly died, but we don't know for sure, the idiot kept ruling his country in exile as well after the destruction of his domain :) It was him, actually, who declared war against Italy, opposite of what is said in the film.Delete
