Letter published on social media: «False that for 20 years I have been deciding the assets of culture in the capital. I will inform the president of the Istituto Luce, Sbarigia, to relieve me of the task of representing the institute on the Rome Cinema Council “

Goffredo Bettini in a letter public, posted on social media – but addressed to the director de The paper, Claudio Cerasa, in response to an article published today by the newspaper, points out the “i” and specifies “with meticulousness” that it is “false that for 20 years I have been deciding the assets of culture in the Capital »and – Saturday 4 December – also announces the resignation from the board of the Rome Film Fest From Rome.

«The whole world knows that I have helped to propose and defend Ignazio Marino, while disagreeing with some aspects of his conduct. For this I also paid high prices. I had no role in his fall, which was decided and then carried out in unacceptable forms by the then national leadership group of the Democratic Party led by Matteo Renzi. Much less can I have said that I wish the same end for Gualtieri. An absurdity. Also in this case I have spent myself in a completely disinterested way to give Rome a worthy and capable mayor who is doing very well and who enjoys my absolute esteem. And that I have repeatedly urged, one can ask him, to mark his authority and autonomy towards everyone ».

Bettini underlines: «The idea that for twenty years decide on assets of culture in Rome – he continues – is simply false. Just see the names. All the greatest responsibilities have been attributed by Alemanno and by Raggi to people I don’t even know. In particular, on the discussion regarding the possible new organization of cultural institutions by Gualtieri, on Friday 26 November, having learned that my name was mentioned in a meeting attended by the institutions appointed to decide, I wrote an email demonstrating the exact opposite of what is written. That is to say that not only am I not at all angry because they would not make me decide, rather I wanted to specify with stubbornness that I do not want in the least to interfere on issues that do not belong to me ».

In the email, published on social media by Bettini, we read: “I will also communicate to the president of the Istituto Luce, Chiara Sbarigia, from lift me up immediately from the office to represent, on the board of directors of Cinema of Rome, the institute that she directs ». But to hastily reply to what is written, there is also the denial of the deputy of the Democratic Party, Claudio Mancini. The usually well-informed newspaper The paper erroneously refers to mine participation at a meeting with the mayor, the president of the Lazio Region and the Minister of Culture, on some issues relating to the cultural institutions of the capital. Easy to check mine no presence because I was simultaneously engaged in a conference on the Mountain Communities of Lazio at 150 km from Rome – Mancini points out – Moreover, most people know that I don’t go to the red carpet and that I’m not particularly passionate about the subject ».
