From popularizer of the video, the alleged “miraculous” drug against coronavirus, Avigan, without scientific evidence on its effectiveness, to organizer of the unauthorized manifestation of the “Tricolor masks”, which took place yesterday in Rome and promoted by the Facebook group of far right “March on Rome” and from some realities close to Casapound. There is controversy around the figure of Cristian Aresu, who became “famous” in mid-March for a video shot in the Ikebukuro district of Tokyo, and published on social media, in which the 41-year-old sponsored the “drug that has existed here since 2012, acts on the RNA, and which treats 90% of cases Covid “, today at the center of protests against the government accused of” starving Italians with the excuse of the coronavirus “, considered by many to be an invention.
As the Bufale.net website reports, the figure of Aresu is ambiguous. The 41-year-old would first pretend to be a “pharmacist”, and in the past, also as a doctor and nurse, but in reality he is not registered in any order, neither that of the Doctors, nor of the Pharmacists, let alone at National Federation of Orders of Nursing Professions. As he claims The weather, Aresu would be the recipient of the Naspl unemployment benefit. Certainly there is only what emerges from his social profiles, namely that he is passionate about video games and who attended the La Sapienza University of Rome, even if it is not clear whether he later graduated or not. Aresu, after the popularity derived from the disclosure of the video, and various television hosts, has always claimed to “not be in search of fame” and that the video, initially published as “private” and therefore visible only to friends, was then released , setting off “a tam tam that I never expected”.
But yesterday, Aresu came back “protagonist”, coming down in the front row next to the far right in Piazza Venezia with his own political movement “Popular dignity “. A group, reads in the “manifesto” published on social networks, born on April 25 to “restore sovereignty to the people” and which today counts as the only component of Aresu itself. The same “pharmacist” shortly after the demonstration, published a video announcing a new protest authorized in Piazza del Popolo, scheduled for next June 10th.
Support ilfattoquotidiano.it: never like now we need you.
In these weeks of pandemic we journalists, if we do our job with conscience, we do a public service. This is also why we are proud every day here at ilfattoquotidiano.it to offer hundreds of new content for free to all citizens: news, exclusive insights, expert interviews, surveys, videos and much more. All this work, however, has a great economic cost. Advertising, in a time when the economy is stagnant, offers limited revenues. Not in line with the access boom.

But now we are the ones who need you. Because our work has a cost. We are proud to be able to offer hundreds of new content every day for free to all citizens. But advertising, in a time when the economy is stagnant, offers limited revenues. Not in line with the boom in access to ilfattoquotidiano.it. This is why I ask you to support us, with a minimum contribution, equal to the price of a cappuccino per week. A small but fundamental sum for our work. Help us out! Become a supporting user!
