Domenico Ferrara accused of rigging TV talent show to let his teenage daughter Giovanna win
DID Domenico Ferrara, 56, get all his friends and relatives, and their friends and relatives in Villaricca, Italy, to vote for his 13-year-old daughter Giovanna to win I’ll Leave You with a Song, a televised contest for children run by Italy’s most prestigious music schools?
Giovanna finished second. If daddy fixed it, he needs to get more influence.
He might also need more mobile phone. Police found 320 mobile phones in his home. It;s alleged he handed out the phones so that his associated could vote for his princess.
Not entirely incidentally, Mr Ferrara is accused of being a “capo” of the local Ferrara-Cacciapuoti Camorra clan.
Says one reporter: “Do you know Domenico Ferrara?”
Local man: “You sing it and I’ll smash your teeth in.”
