With the verve to which he has accustomed us, the president of the Campania Region, Vincenzo De Luca, harangues the crowd in Piazza Santi Apostoli in Rome: “All we need is for them to throw the atomic bomb at us.” It’s his colorful way of saying that the South has also been abandoned by this Government: “Autonomy does not help to close the north-south divide,” he said.

Together with almost 700 mayors De Luca asks for the frozen funds to be released. And then a remote question and answer with the Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni who is in Gioia Tauro for the signing of the Cohesion Pact. “Maybe if we worked instead of holding demonstrations we could get some more results,” says the prime minister, and he replies: “You work… To work we need money. Is this attitude tolerable with hundreds of mayors who don’t have the money for ordinary administration?”.

De Luca, and a delegation of ten mayors will be received by the prefect of Rome, Lamberto Giannini. The President of the Campania Region himself announced this while conversing with journalists on Transatlantico alla Camera. “In Fitto’s ministry they are all fugitives, there is no one: there is no minister, there are no undersecretaries, there is no head of cabinet…maybe they are on holiday or playing tennis. So we receives the prefect. We will take this beautiful walk up Via del Corso”
