Milano – The water cascades down. Some ceiling tiles are on the ground, soaking wet. It is not a good start to the week at the nursery school in via Pezzi, a few steps from the Ravizza park: flooded rooms and children left at home. By force. This happened yesterday morning. The first committed ones noticed the disaster at the opening of the kindergarten, which has 180 members between 3 and 5 years old. The problem? “The rupture of a valve in the fire extinguishing system – explain from the school building department – who blew up a water pipe “.

Hence the rain from above (this time the downpours and infiltrations have nothing to do with it) and the consequent flooding and collapse of some ceiling panels, which could not withstand the weight of the water. The trade unionist Stefano Mansi (Italian Union of the Municipality of Milan), who yesterday reported the case on Facebook, asks: “Tragedy touched? We called a security strike, on October 11. If the cover had fallen on a child there could have been serious consequences “. Allegedly, the tube burst on the night between Sunday and Monday. After the bitter discovery, the intervention of the technicians sent by MM, who takes care of the maintenance of the municipal schools, was immediate. In the meantime, communications have started to inform mothers and fathers of the temporary closure of the school, so that they could save themselves the trip to the kindergarten; but not everyone has received the news, and some have learned it once they arrive at the door (with their children in tow). The facility will also be closed today, to complete the restoration, and the return of the children is scheduled for tomorrow.

From the school building department they underline that “the technicians have already repaired the damage but technical times are required for drying and inspection by the firefighters, who will have to check the electrical system after replacing the broken valve”. Mansi argues, also bringing up the anti-Covid legislation: “If instead of the green pass, checks were made on the structures, on the certification of the systems, on the presence of the Fire Wake, more than half of nurseries, kindergartens, elementary and middle schools of the Municipality of Milan should remain closed. An extraordinary plan is needed to repair the immense municipal school patrimony. Unfortunately, the one in via Pezzi is not an isolated case but many employees do not report situations fearing disciplinary measures “.
