Florence, Del Re proposal to purchase the former Astor hotel

Florence, Del Re proposal to purchase the former Astor hotel

A wound that never healed. Because, almost eight months later, Florence still wonders what happened to Kata, the five-year-old Peruvian girl kidnapped on June 10th. And I never found it again. An issue that has already entered the electoral campaign that will inaugurate the new mayor of the Tuscan capital. Because this abduction is undoubtedly […]

Tourism, FdI in Florence points the finger at the Democratic Party: “Infrastructure and security are lacking”

Tourism, FdI in Florence points the finger at the Democratic Party: “Infrastructure and security are lacking”

A fundamental issue for our country. Which, in a city like Florence, will certainly have a huge impact on the next local elections in June. A meeting between political and industrial categories and a finger pointed, peremptorily, at the Democratic Party. The room at the Adriatico hotel in Florence, where the meeting was held, organized […]

Safe streets in Florence, announcement by Piantedosi: “60 more soldiers on the streets”

Safe streets in Florence, announcement by Piantedosi: “60 more soldiers on the streets”

The usual left. That for years ignored the issue of security, branded it “an attempt to militarize the city”, and then asked the central government for urgent interventions. The reason? The authentic terror of losing the next local elections in what has always been considered a strong red. Florentines are tired of a station at […]

Florence, Tomaso Montanari is a candidate. Because the left is falling apart

Florence, Tomaso Montanari is a candidate. Because the left is falling apart

Always together, eternally divided. The Florentine left, which for years called the shots and decided the structure of the city, is extremely weak and divided. The latest indiscretion collected by our newspaper is that Cecilia Del Re, councilor dismissed by Mayor Nardella due to a difference of opinion on the tram, broke the delay. The […]

Florence, Nardella’s attack on Schmidt. Brothers from Italy react: “Pathetic”

Florence, Nardella’s attack on Schmidt. Brothers from Italy react: “Pathetic”

The election campaign heats up in Florence. This morning there was a harsh attack by Mayor Dario Nardella on Eike Schmidt, outgoing director of the Uffizi Gallery and likely center-right mayoral candidate in the Tuscan capital. After taking a position, Fratelli d’Italia’s response was not long in coming, reacting with a note from the deputy […]

PD in chaos. “They kill themselves”, the case of Florence and the Italia Viva trip

PD in chaos. “They kill themselves”, the case of Florence and the Italia Viva trip

Incessant phone calls, messages, negotiations. Even in the most unthinkable times. A desperate attempt, born more from the (genuine) terror of losing power than from a common political idea. A completely useless effort, because once we reached the point (that is, the programs), the distances were and remained sidereal. And so, one of the parties […]

PD, anti-fascist rally in Florence. Few gifts, after half an hour it melts

PD, anti-fascist rally in Florence. Few gifts, after half an hour it melts

A resounding failure. Disappointing numbers (for organizers), despite the presence of local Democratic Party leaders. Florence responds unequivocally to the demonstration organized yesterday afternoon by the Democrats against the Roman commemoration of Acca Larentia. A loud and clear message addressed to the progressive trombones: no, there is no danger of a return of fascism. And […]

Florence, Matteo Renzi’s maneuvers with the Democratic Party. What’s behind the rapprochement

Florence, Matteo Renzi’s maneuvers with the Democratic Party. What’s behind the rapprochement

A game of balances. An unpredictable perspective until a few days ago, which opens up new scenarios. Local and, above all, national. The Democratic Party is literally terrified of the possibility of losing Florence in June, Tuscany in 2025. A dramatic future for the Democrats who, urged by the far-sighted governor Eugenio Giani, opened the […]

Elections in Florence, Matteo Renzi sets the conditions: “What the Democratic Party must do”

Elections in Florence, Matteo Renzi sets the conditions: “What the Democratic Party must do”

The cat and the mouse. Who today brings the carrot as a dowry and tomorrow proudly shows the stick. Aware of being, without any reasonable doubt, the tip of the scale. Matteo Renzi returns to talk about Florence and the rumors about a possible convergence of Italia Viva with the Democratic Party. And it does […]

Florence, Italy Viva-Pd: confrontation over fines. “They just want to make money”

Florence, Italy Viva-Pd: confrontation over fines. “They just want to make money”

A sidereal distance. An abyss that grows every day. Two visions of politics are now irreconcilable. Italia Viva and the Democratic Party in Florence beat each other up. The latest clash (but only in chronological order) concerns one of the three issues (along with security and the future of the Franchi stadium) that will be […]
