“Heart and commitment (and phone that rings constantly) dedicated to the citizens of Emilia and Romagna who struggle with water and mud. A Milan without heart, grit and ideas doesn’t even deserve a thought”. It is the text of a tweet by Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini posted late yesterday evening and subsequently deleted, but the screenshot of which is bouncing all over social media.
The controversy over the choice to comment in a single twitter on the devastation of the floods of these hours in Emilia Romagna and the defeat of Milan – of which Salvini is a fan – eliminated by Inter in the Champions League semi-final is inevitable.
“After ‘belli ciao’ – he attacks the Democratic Party with Daniele Manca, Pd group leader in the Budget Committee at Palazzo Madama – Salvini finds nothing better than to associate the tragedy that is taking place in Emilia in a tweet, his job which should be that of minister and the football match. Realizing the obscenity written, he then had the tweet deleted. But perhaps it would be appropriate for him to stop his beast because that tweet is only unworthy of a representative of our institutions”.
Then a note from the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport lets it be known: “The Deputy Prime Minister and Minister Matteo Salvini is constantly in contact with the local administrators of Emilia-Romagna and the Marches, at all levels and with particular reference to the mayors, and is monitoring the situation of the infrastructure starting from roads and railways, asking for constant and real-time updates”. “The Coast Guard – continues the note – is at the forefront of rescue efforts and has already sent women, men and vehicles to the most affected areas”.
