Adriano Celentano (born January 6, 1938) is an Italian singer, songwriter, comedian, actor, film director and TV host.
from Franco Tedaldi, IVU coordinator for Italy:
You can find this letter of Adriano Celentano to the minister Mrs. Livia Turco, “thoughts by a vegetarian”, dating end of 2006, published on Peacelink http://www.peacelink.it/animali/a/21438.html - in Italian.
Adriano Celentano is vegetarian since 2005, as he defends animal rights (with few exceptions, he says: mosquitoes, for example, are never mentioned in the Cantico dei Cantici by San Francis of Assisi).
The advantages that vegetarianism offers, he says, are
- your health
- a strike to the industry of the holocaust of sentient beings
- the chance to say “it’s not for me that lambs and kids are slaughtered at Christmas and Easter”.
