Front row of the royal box at La Scala with Senator Liliana Segre and her daughter, Federica Belli Paci. Alongside, on one side the mayor of Milan, Giuseppe Sala, on the other the president of the Senate Ignazio La Russa. In the second row, right behind the ministers, starting with Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Infrastructure Matteo Salvini, Culture Minister Gennaro Sangiuliano and Reform Minister Elisabetta Alberti Casellati. According to what AdnKronos found out from sources at Palazzo Madama, this is the seating arrangement to watch the premiere at La Scala, which will see “Don Carlo” on stage tomorrow night. “No controversy, just a logistical problem”, highlighted the same sources after the ballet regarding the accommodation of institutional and political guests in the theater.
And the president of the Senate, Ignazio La Russa, responded with clear words to the statements of Mayor Beppe Sala, who initially refused to sit on the chairs on the stage of honor to be close to the senator for the rest of his life: “Wherever we are sitting at La Scala it doesn’t seem like a big problem, someone writes that she is going to the stands, I would like to have Segre on the stage of honor, because it seems to me that a life senator like the president of a special commission would be better off seeing her in the box of honor.” “In any case, if Segre continues in the hearing, I will go to the hearing alongside the senator for the rest of my life, to be consistent with my idea. You know Segre, so she didn’t pose any problem, her availability exists in every way. From this point of view, I really appreciate Senator Segre”, he added.
