The Italian Supreme Court of Cassation rendered the judgement No. 6786/2016 ruling on the use of such popular notions in a satiric version. The case at hand involved a compensation for damages for press defamation carried out by a Member of the Parliament, author of several publications following the response by the web editor of a well-known Italian newspaper. In particular, a reader asked if the editor held that the story of the above-mentioned parliamentary-writer, who resulted to have collaborated with the SISMI, could be treated as another much more famous case of a spy-writer: i.e. Ernest Hemingway. The editor, in order to criticise the difference between the two events, quoted a Milanese figure of speech, often used by the famous Milanese comedian Gino Bramieri, due to you must know a risotto from droppings. The Supreme Court took the chance to point out that the right to satire turns away from the parameter of truth of facts, considered that the expression used by the editor constitute a legitimate exercise of the right of satire, having a hyperbolic and grotesque value, perceivable by the reader, aimed at highlighting the lack of comparability between the story analysed and the greater prominence, at historical and artistic level, of the Nobel prize Hemingway. According to the Supreme Court such satiric processing must be considered lawful if the recipient is a public with a physiological increased media exposure (internal limit) and the satiric message is causally connected to its public dimension (external limit).
