Pistoia. Everyone has to go. Regular and irregular. "Urgent" writes the prefecture. In fact, everything is missing there. Escape routes, fire extinguishers, electrical systems, fire hydrants, safety stairs … Not to mention the red alarm situation in the kitchen, with gas pipes running next to the chimney. In terms of fire and safety regulations, the parish of Vicofaro is a real powder keg. At least according to the orders of the Pistoia firefighters, who last Thursday together with the ASL technicians carried out an inspection of the buildings of the presbytery and of the old church where Massimo Biancalani it currently receives nearly a hundred migrants.
But it is not just eighty, driven out of the shelter program, to endanger: on the top floor is the extraordinary shelter (Cas), the official reception center, which is housed by the prefecture and houses 12 asylum seekers . All on the same boat. And in the evening welcomed the 12 migrants who were welcomed by the Virgil-Future City Association (which also includes the parish of Vicofaro) to leave. For the time being, at least until the necessary compliance with the regulations has been completed.
From what has been learned seven of them are destined for Ramini, one in Marliana, while we continue to look for a solution for the other four. Initially, Don Biancalani had offered to receive them in his home. The fate of the other migrants in the parish has yet to be decided.
On Monday evening, Don Massimo himself announced the situation at the meeting convened in the afternoon by Vicofaro's anti-fascist and anti-racist assembly to support the activity of welcoming Fr Biancalani on the same day as the anniversary of the provocation of the neo-fascists of Forza Nuova, who presented themselves during the Sunday Mass in Vicofaro to "verify" the degree of orthodoxy of the parish priest, friend of migrants. About a hundred people attended the meeting.
