阿卡索英语编者按:据路透社报道,为刺激经济增长,帮助经济复苏,意大利总理西尔维奥•贝卢斯科尼日前在一则新的电视广告中号召意大利人在本国度假,享受意大利的“蓝天、阳光和大海”。

Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi urges Italians to vacation in their own homeland of "skies, sun and sea" in a new television advertisement aimed at boosting an economy struggling to emerge from recession.

It comes weeks after Berlusconi's government unveiled an unpopular 25-billion euro austerity budget that has sparked protests and helped push his popularity ratings to new lows.

"What you're seeing is your Italy, a unique country of skies, sun, sea, but also of history, culture and art," Berlusconi narrates over the images. "It's an extraordinary country, which you have yet to discover. Use your vacation, to know Italy better, your magic Italy."

This is the first time an Italian prime minister has lent his voice to an institutional advertisement and is aimed at boosting the economy at a time of spending cutbacks, Tourism Minister Vittoria Brambilla told a Wednesday news conference.

Italians are expected to spend about 14 billion euros on vacations abroad this year and perting even a small slice of that spending back home would help, she said.

Berlusconi in the past has urged Italians to keep spending and shopping to help Italy's economy, which suffered its post-war recession in 2008 and 2009.
