Summer camps, Bonetti: Regions may decide on a different date
As for summer camps, the Minister for Equal Opportunities and the Family Elena Bonetti clarified that “the Regions and the autonomous Provinces can establish a different early or postponed date for the opening, provided that they have assessed their compatibility with the trend of the epidemiological situation in its territories and which identify the applicable protocols or guidelines suitable for preventing or reducing the risk of contagion in compliance with the principles contained in the protocols or in the national guidelines. The Veneto Region – he then recalled – will start the summer centers from next Monday 1 June, the Emilia Romagna Region will start them from 8 June. Other regions are close to approving their own protocols “. «I do not underestimate – concluded Bonetti – the difficulties generated by the approved provisions, but it is a question of finding the right balance between the right to socializing, playing and in general the education of children and adolescents and the need to guarantee protection conditions their health. “
Regions in government: update Dpcm with new guidelines
Five days ago, on Friday 22 May, the Conference of Regions and Autonomous Provinces approved the update and integration with the “Guidelines for the reopening of economic and productive activities”. The updated version of the “Guidelines” has been sent to the Prime Minister, Giuseppe Conte, to the Minister of Health, Roberto Speranza and to the Minister for Regional Affairs, Francesco Boccia so that the government updates the Dpcm of 17 May 2020 for the purpose of publication. in the Official Gazette, “also for a coherent coordination of the texts”. Hence the words of Zaia: the venerated governor highlighted that the operation was not carried out.
The request for a confrontation with ministers
The Conference of the Regions then underlined the opportunity that on some of the new cards (“cinema and live entertainment” and “services for children and adolescents”) “an immediate confrontation was activated given that the Government is already working on these issues ». The conference also asked to meet Bonetti, the head of cultural heritage Dario Franceschini, education and university Lucia Azzolina, sports Vincenzo Spadafora, and transport, Paola De Micheli.
The clash on election day on September 20
But the game with the government is not played only on the field of opening guidelines. The distances are also on the date of the election day. “We read the statements of the government representative (Undersecretary for the Interior Variati, editor’s note) who talks about the agreement between the executive and the Regions on the vote date on 20 September – underlined the president and vice-president of the Conference of the Regions Stefano Bonaccini and Giovanni Totisi law -. But in reality there has been no formal agreement. Five of the six Regions called to the polls had officially indicated other dates: July 26, September 6 or September 13 at the latest. September 20 is therefore a date that was not included among those indicated, which also prevents the reopening of a school year, which is already very difficult in itself. Furthermore, it is a date close to October, the month in which, according to the reports of the Government’s technical-scientific committee, Covid could re-propose itself ».
