Fantinati *

Saman grew up in Novellara, but she probably died as if she had grown up in Pakistan: what was the point of being in Italy?

The fact is that welcoming is easy, integrating is much more complex, especially with those communities that are more reluctant to respect our laws.

It was useless to urge the mayors to listen to us for years, to prepare different, concrete and effective integration projects.

The only thing they have always told us is that we of the center-right are racists who exploit these issues for the sake of controversy. All lies that I reject to the sender: the truth is that these are taboo themes for the left, the truth is that the many and expensive projects, from the Equivalent Diverse Festival to the Rosa dei Venti, have not been effective, they have not reached those many families in which women do not know a word of Italian, they cannot leave the house, study, work, socialize and probably are not even fully aware of their situation of submission: how many other Saman are there in Novellara? So many.

But we had to protect Saman, we had to warn her, we had to go and ring the bell every day and check that returning to the family was not dangerous for her.

Social services can prepare customized projects to take charge and protect victims of violence, fragile people, young people, easily deceived. Did they do it? Did they intervene after Saman’s father imposed school dropout? Did they do everything they could for Saman?

I do not think so. I appreciate that the mayor has admitted that there is good room for improvement compared to what has been done so far. But will they involve all parties or will they once again act alone?
