Ancona – City councilor for Culture, Anna Maria Bertini, member of FdI (Brothers of Italy) illustrates the councilor’s programs at the press conference, to praise her skills as a prudent saver in the management of public money, she slips badly and affirms that “I am very Jewish on these things” (su queste cose io sono molto ebrea).
Words that raised immediate controversy in the city council, with the Democratic Party calling them “inappropriate and heavy”, while for Italia Viva they are “shameful and unacceptable expressions”. To stop the criticism, the councilor tries to put a patch in, which risks being worse than the hole: “I said it in the good sense of the term – she explains – I’m from the Marches and I have” short arms “”. That is, that they do not easily reach the pockets.
«Every day this right, inadequate and disturbing – attacks the secretary of the Italian Left Nicola Fratoianni – gives us a nasty surprise. The shame of the right arm of the current president of the Lazio Region with his indecent words on the Bologna massacre was not enough at a national level. Now we also have the Ancona councilor of FdI. But where are we getting to? But where can President Meloni find such people?” The parliamentarian of the Alleanza Verdi Sinistra asks the leaders of Giorgia Meloni’s party that «before managing public affairs, it would be a good thing in those parts to do a good cleaning of racists, fascists and anti-Semites. Italy does not deserve to be represented like this. And in the case of Ancona, FdI should accompany its councilor to the door. Right away”.
