These are two big names, two excellent excluded from the Red Room, but the doors of two District Councils will open for them. These are the singer of Subsonica, Max Casacci, and the former director of Matera 2019, Paolo Verri. Both candidates with the “Torino Domani” civic list in the center-left in support of Stefano Lo Russo. Whatever happens, whether Lo Russo wins or Damilano wins, it is difficult for either of them to enter the City Council. Verri is third with 837 votes, Casacci fourth with 539 votes. In front, however, they have Francesco Tresso, record holder with 2,432 preferences, and Tiziana Ciampolini with 1,051 votes. Even if Tresso were to join the city government team, as councilor, resigning from the Red Room, they would both remain out.
Both Casacci and Verri have already obtained two seats in two different District Councils. Casacci is elected to the Council of District 7, which will be led by Luca Deri and which groups together the districts Aurora, Vanchiglia, Sassi and Madonna del Pilone, while Paolo Verri, who now works in the Municipality of Genoa, was proclaimed councilor of Turin Domani in the District 8, under the guidance of Massimiliano Miano, which includes the districts of San Salvario, Lingotto, Filadelfia, Nizza Millefonti, Cavoretto, Borgo Po. For the man who brought Matera 2019, European Capital of Culture, to success, working first on the strategic plan of Turin and on the major events in the city between the Castellani and Chiamparino junctions, could there be a position as councilor in a possible Lo Russo junta? It was a hypothesis that had been circulating for the past few weeks. However, it depends not only on the outcome of the ballot and the generosity of Tresso, but on the requests that the mayor will make to the coalition parties. In short, for now, for sure there is only the place in the District.
