“Two weights and two measures. All the fault of the nightlife” the inscription on a banner displayed in the evening on the steps in front of the Duomo by some young people against what they called “a diversity of treatment” with what happened after the gatherings of the night between Friday and last Saturday which led the Municipality to issue an ordinance that provides for the closure of some clubs at 9 pm on weekends. Patrols from the municipal, carabinieri and police intervened to investigate. The protest has therefore ended.
In the controversy – which has also developed on social media – the Umbrian deputy of the Democratic Party Walter Verini intervened who spread a photo of the mayor Andrea Romizi among the crowd. “The passage of the Frecce tricolori in the skies of various Italian cities – claimed the parliamentarian – cannot in any way justify what happened in the center of Perugia, with incredible, unjustified and dangerous gatherings of hundreds and hundreds of people. And even less we can justify the behavior of the mayor who, instead of working to prevent and resolve the gatherings, posed for souvenir photos “.Romizi, in a note from the Municipality, had already underlined that “in the square, those present attended in a very orderly way, wearing the mask, while the few who did not have it were armed by the local police”.
