The Italian government is investing $1.5 million in an country-wide campaign against eating disorders. Says Giovanna Melandri, minister of youth and sports who is overseeing the campaign, "[What the government seeks to do is] to make sure young people, young girls and young boys, know that they can die" from eating disorders. Special efforts are being made to target the media, schools, and (no shocker to anyone who still has their Capezios) dance teachers. We wonder whether that the photo of a nude Carla Bruni somehow figures in to all of this. [San Francisco Chronicle]
