Milan, 16 October 2021 – Beyond the damage, the mockery. The residents of the Lazzaretto Committee, in the center of the move of the so-called “Milan Rainbow District”, they read that the Municipality will finance with 16 thousand euros 14 vigilantes who will try to ward off the chaos around to 10 clubs on weekends for a month and protest: “The vigilantes paid by the clubs with public money are a real mockery. Who created the chaos, now plays the victim and looks for remedies that will not be of any use, because we know very well that these security officers cannot intervene to avoid gatherings, degradation and theft. Beyond the damage, the insult “.
Words by Elena Montafia, spokesperson for the Lazzaretto Committee, who for years has been fighting to combat the wild nightlife in the neighborhood, which exploded to levels out of control after the post-pandemic recovery, in particular in via Lecco, via Lazzaro Palazzi, via Tadino and largo Bellintani , where dehors and outdoor tables have multiplied. Residents think that many premises also occupy unauthorized spaces.
Meanwhile, Montafia adds: “We have hell under our house, a situation of total deregulation, an improper use of public space that passes through continuous evening and night gatherings, even DJ sets. And no one ever intervenes to restore order. Neither the police, nor the traffic police “. The ordinance of the Municipality on the ban on the take-away of alcohol from 22 to 5, expired on 5 October, is it useful or not?” Zero results, because there are no controls. Yet the laws to protect public order exist, beyond the ordinance “.
What are the requests of the Lazaretto Committee? The spokesperson starts from a premise (“the ideal would be to return to zero external and local dehors behind closed doors, but we know that the dehors will remain, we hope at least they will be better regulated”) and immediately afterwards lists the requests: “Arpa sensors are needed to detect the noise: after every exceeding of the limits, the fines. And a constant presence of the police is needed “. Finally, La Montafia reveals that “The Committee is paying a partial report, ready in 15 days. The technicians told us that the noise in the streets is like a” factory at full capacity “, beyond the 55 decibel limit, here we arrive at 85 “. When you have the results of the appraisal, what will you do? “A civil suit for damages against the Municipality, which does not intervene to enforce the rules “.
