Italy’s most famous porn star, Cicciolina, 68, starts a political party after the government has lowered its retirement – three decades after being elected as a member of parliament

  • Between 1987 and 1991 she made headlines with bizarre policy commitments
  • She founded the Democracy, Nature and Love party in protest against pension cuts

A famous Italian porn star has founded a new political party to lead the fight against ruling populists after they have lowered their retirement.

Ilona Staller, 68, known by her stage name Cicciolina, was a well-known erotic film actress in the 1980s before embarking on a career in politics.

Between 1987 and 1991 she served as a member of parliament at the Radical Party and recorded headlines, such as offering sex with Saddam Hussein in exchange for peace in Iraq.

Now she is ready to follow the campaign track again with the new Democracy, Nature and Love party, which will be used as a tool to air out personal anger about the swinging pension cuts of the Five Star Movement, according to The times.

Ilona Staller, 68, (pictured at Milan Fashion Week in 2015) was a famous porn star but has formed her own political party in protest against pension cuts

Ilona Staller, 68, (pictured left at Milan Fashion Week in 2015 and right on Hugh Hefner’s 80th birthday in 2006) has forged her own political party in protest against pension cuts

When Staller retired, she enjoyed the flat-rate payment of € 3,100 per month from the Italian parliament.

But in a show against the elite, the populists who control the reins in Rome took a knife for MPs’ pensions and reduced it to € 1,000.

Staller has labeled this cut as’ unconstitutional ‘and drums up to see how ministers’ own portfolios take a similar hit.

Defiant, she said, “I am coming back in politics to point out that these politicians are reducing the pensions of former MPs while keeping their own wages.”

Staller first grasped as a model in the early 1970s before moving south to Italy to start life as a porn actress.

With the renowned pornographer Riccardo Schicchim, she founded Diva Futura porn studios.

Still, she really gained national fame in a memorable TV interview where she flashed her breasts live from the air.

Staller continued to produce porn movies as she dipped her toe in politics and ran to the Green Party in vain before finally winning a place with the Radicals.

But she closed the party in 1991 and four years later she founded her own party – the Party of Love – with a fellow porn star.

Flagship policy included the legalization of prostitution, same-sex marriage and cannabis for medicinal reasons.

Now she has once again set her sights on public office with the Democracy, Nature and Love Party.

The next elections are not until 2023, but the Italian political landscape is increasingly tumultuous since Five Star tore the traditional bipartisan in 2013.

The party, founded by comedian Beppe Grillo, was forced into a coalition with the Democratic Party at the end of 2019 after the anti-immigration Northern League withdrew from the government.
