Is Emperor Nero’s demagogy still up to date? Is his fight against Senatorial Class a step towards modern "Democracy" or was the Senatorial Class a valid counter power able to balance the Emperor’s growing power? Can we call "nice leadership" the attempt to conquer the popular consensus through arts and music performances? Both Nero and the Italian Premier Silvio Berlusconi seem to prefer this to a pure political and social consensus: how efficient can this be? What has it to do with modern Democracy? The article looks provocatively into these subjects in order to participate in the debate about political leadership.

Keywords: Nerone, Cardano, Berlusconi, "nice leadership", democrazia, popular consensus.
