Occupying seats for 25 disabled people on a GenovaMilano train is as horrific as the fact that they couldn’t free them.
When organizing trips with the disabled, you must make sure in advance that everything is going as agreed. The opposite does not exist. The train was not supposed to leave Genoa until the boys were safe on the train.
The feeling that the entire transport system, far from the most unpleasant event, that occurred in Genoa, has worn off …
The story of 25 adults with Down syndrome (I wouldn’t call them disabled: they are people we can learn a lot from) who were unable to travel on reserved seats should shame us all. These are the moments when Italy gives its worst. series of responsibilities. Vandals who hit two vehicles, in a certain impunity. Trenitalia which was not able to regularly equip the train (traveling by bus is not the same thing, in any case the passengers arrived in Milan three hours late). Other passengers who, if they were already occupying seats that were not theirs, had to get up. In a perfect world, it would be the vandals who started the chain who would have to apologize and do something for these 25 people. One fact remains: the transportation system was dramatically unprepared for the resumption of tourism. I only report on episodes that readers have written about. On Saturday evening, in Naples, tourists who went to eat pizza in Marechiaro could not call a taxi to return; Waiting for hours The charity restaurants eventually offered a ride with their own means. On a Sunday afternoon, there were no taxis in Rome at Termini station; It could not even be called Samarkand, the historical anchor of salvation. In Venice, they did not accept the ride to the airport, only to Santa Marta, where I moved to the car: both the boat and the car apparently rounded the fare, and the car did not accept credit cards. I know the answer: Easter. But for this very reason, more transportation will be required, not less.

Famous Solitary Waves by Flavio Insinna
Dear Cazzullo, We’ve read your response to Flavio Insinna’s Corriere reader, and we disagree on reconstructing the facts. In the famous outward wave of your affairs broadcast by Striscia la Notizie, the host of the parcel game was not angry – even insulting – at the pressure behind the television machine, but because of the unsuccessful falsification of the end result of the program. We remind you that in that wave – in the plural because it wasn’t one case, but several documented by satirical news – Strip reveals that Insinna pushed to change the selection of competitors by explicitly requesting that the lottery be ignored (provided by regulation) to choose competitors more sympathetically: they rigged Votes to make up the republic, or else they would revolt against the monarchy, and we can’t put five nice people in the envelope? But, above all, would Striscia be that cruel in your opinion? And then insinuating that he’s giving a malicious dwarf to a rival without even apologizing to her? In the most famous movie Off the Wave, Insinna says what the chiefs of the Affari tua should have done: stop taping and convince the opponent from Valle d’Aosta, identified as a dirty dwarf, to turn down the doctor’s offer, even with violence: There she hits her in the lower stomach and says: “Now come back and play! Why Raiuno and not Valle d’Aosta News. Mortacci for you!”. Without forgetting the verbal violence (and not only) practiced against women in the books written by the host. We have reported on a clip taken from Not Even With a Bite in the Ear (Mondadori, 2012), chapter The bitchy nurse: See and Speak with the inevitable rage that bespectacled, ugly, bespectacled women sometimes feel in their bodies. And in the next chapter he imagines the following scene: he gets to his car and opens the door and doesn’t have time to get in, I arrive from behind, I take her by the neck and hit her in the face with her new car. Purchased in sixteen convenient installments. She has a nosebleed, but she does not pass. Turn her towards me to look me straight in the face. “Oh, can you hear me, can you hear me? Then listen, you ugly asshole, don’t you dare leave me out of my father’s room again. You stick to organizing in your ass and you’ll see you’re also having some fun. Have a father reply the ugly dwarf bitch! And if you try to report me I will come back tomorrow and kill you with my own hands.” Meditation words, written and published in a book. Thus convictions are firmly rooted in the beloved Flavio Encinna.
