'Fat' politicians Italian food producers' association Coldiretti cited a study showing that about 44 percent of Italian workers eat lunch in a restaurant or bar, and about 36 percent in a company canteen, while less than one in five take a packed lunch from home. The minister, whose cabinet role is the "fulfillment of the government's program," did however propose the closure of the subsidized canteen in parliament, which he said "costs too much to run and makes members of parliament get fat." Corriere della Sera newspaper recalled that in 1924 dictator Benito Mussolini caught a whiff of cooking in parliament and said disapprovingly: "We come here to make laws, not to eat!" But nutritionist Pietro Migliaccio warned that Italians "already have a very light breakfast or miss it altogether. If we skipped lunch too we'd risk having a blood sugar crisis in the afternoon, which would make it quite difficult to work."
