Le cahiers de doléances du petit Alemanno

…in the meantime, here’s what our mayor (ancora per poco!) writes to Rome’s citizens (thank you Dorita, I haven’t got my copy yet).

Since 2007 we are enjoying mandatory blackouts of the public lighting in our neighborhood, two days a week. Very sensible, especially with uneven pavements and broken pavé. Very sensible, since Alemanno boasted during his campaign the need for ronde to protect women from being raped. How is darkness fitting into the plan? And in the meantime the city becomes homophobic and violence erupts due to lack of money for the police (but the police is dispatched to protect Forza Nuova’s campaigns).

Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy – the French luxury conglomerate – is taking care of the Tridente paving as a compensation for transforming a former cinema in a store (the cinema ceased to be a cinema some 12 years ago, mind you).

Vogue and the major labels now provide an Ersatz of the Notte Bianca with the Vogue Fashion Night Out (I do not even mention local Alemanno-sponsored pathetic cultural activities).

So, should we hope that Foscarini or Targetti or Artemide provide lighting free of charge for the safety of our streets? Anyone volunteering for sponsoring the police? The garbage collection?

“Il brutto chiama il brutto” and since Alemanno started to starve the city in 2007, it seems impossible that the lack of investment may buck the trend and make Rome a more welcoming and safer city. But we can be sure that his family and famigli got juicy advantages since his appointment as mayor of Rome.
