The winning village has to be declared: the televoting rewards Palazzolo Acreide (Sicily) with 41% of preferences, while Bobbio (Emilia Romagna) stops at 20%. The jury directed by Daverio changes the result; nothing wrong, except that there is an obvious behind the turnaround conflict of interest. The art critic is in fact an honorary citizen of Bobbio and has therefore been accused of having deprived Palazzolo Acreide of the final victory on a personal matter.
Intercepted by Hyenas, Daverio aggravated the situation: "I don't like Sicily and I won't even go there anymore, seeing how they took the thing. I'm scared, I felt a threatening tone that is part of Sicilian culture". In reality, the mayor of Palazzolo Acreide welcomed the jury's decision with irony, promising honorary citizenship to the art critic. The latter later apologized, perhaps realizing that he had gone beyond the limit:" I apologize to the Sicilians, because I generalized by telling many people what was destined for a few troublemakers ".
