FREE PARK CORNER: Internazionale a Ferrara 2012-Interview with Friedrich Moser ( English with Italian subtitles)

Good evening to everyone! Today, i'm going to purpose you an interview realized during the Festival Internazionale a Ferrara 2012 (5-6-7th of October) with the filmmaker Friedrich Moser, author with Matthieu Lietaert of the movie "The Brussels Business", a documentary with the aim of investigating the role and the power of the lobbies within the European Union institutions in Brussels.

The Lobby industry in Brussels is the second one in the world, right after the US' one and with the help of Friedrich Moser, we have tried to understand the role of these groups of pressure expecially in the contest of a Eurozone in crisis and because, despite the influence of the European dimension on the single features of its citizens' life, the European affairs are kept away from the spotlights.
