The British Telegraph reports:
A 70-year-old Italian law professor has discovered a new career writing erotic memoirs after losing his university job following accusations that he offered students high marks for sex.
Ezio Capizzano, a former law teacher at Camerino University in central Italy, gives detailed accounts of his amorous “tutorials” in the book, The Last Baron In A Campus of Tulips, published this week.
When it emerged in 2002 that he had video-taped his “one-to-one” tutorials he became a household name in Italy and a role model for ageing Casanovas. Far from condemning him, the media lauded Prof Capizzano.
The respected Corriere della Sera newspaper described him as “Italy’s answer to Sean Connery”.
In 2004 he was acquitted of any wrongdoing after the court accepted his claim that the students had all given their full consent.
