"The bad days". It looks like the title of a novel. Page & # 39; s and pages that continue to subtract, work on ellipses and then give space to a flood of words. Those who lived through his own recognition Graziano Delrio are bad days. Days closed in a stubborn silence after the avalanche of criticism received for the management of the Autostrade affair, at the time he was minister of the governments of Matteo Renzi and Paolo Gentiloni.
"I have long thought about the possibility of coming here and interrupting it," he confesses a rather lukewarm stalls against him. Delrio chooses for the Rimini meeting to break the wall he has built around his reduced wall. He decides to be a rookie in the Riviera and smiles, selfies and maybe a salty bass that is consumed on the coast serenely, but a blitz of squadernando figures, dates, a silent yet violent rage against the many whips, the "slanderous" "who" is all reported ".
At least five hundred people listened to him, sitting next to Giancarlo Giorgetti, both invited by Maurizio Lupi for the traditional meeting of the inter-subsidiarity group that takes place every year on the cielline kermesse stage. Arriving journalists, he pulls straight ahead, an area is going to border on reporters. A few exciting smiles with the undersecretary of the Council Presidency and then to the podium.
Collect the applause of that part of the audience (from the applause seems to be underage), nostalgic to the Nazarene, and try to fly high. From the shoes some pebbles step over the need for cohesion, unity, not yielding to a witch-hunt logic. It is afterwards, at the next press conference, that he gets a tense but determined look and unleashes a row of fire against the denigrators: "In these days I have heard lies that dishonor the dead". Explain that it is a lie that his ministry has extended the conditions of the concession: "We simply avoided overcompensation to the concessionaire in accordance with the Commission and the European rules". That is a lie that the contracts are classified: "It was all online, they were only removed for a warning from Aiscat, that a listed company warned us against the publication of sensitive documents, but anyone who wants can access it ".
The former owner of Infrastructure replies blow-by-blow. Rejected the thesis of the could not know: "I read the documents published by Espresso But they were part of a technical work, as political leaders we never received those documents, nor was there ever the need reported to traffic on the bridge to limit Morandi ".
It makes mea culpa, because "nobody can say that it was perfect". But it rattled on the basis of data in the last legislature that the ANAS received 23 billion, of which 50% had the indication to allocate them for maintenance. "So many have been allocated from 2001 to 2013". He turns to Giorgetti: "So I say yes to an extraordinary plan for infrastructure, but first we spend the money there".
Locked the notebooks and turned off the cameras, put the exit of the stock market and went away, controsole. Almost like in the poignant final image of that film by Terence Malick. With the difference that there were tracks in the background in the background, here a damned collapsed bridge. And that that was "Days of Heaven". These are just "bad days".
