Towards the elections
05 June 2021
Yesterday in Rome. Today in Milan. Tuesday again in the capital, for what could be a clearing summit, even if not decisive. Because, this time, the leader of the League, Matteo Salvini, wants to really close the game of candidacies for the municipal councils. But without the frenzy of planting flags here and there. “We are playing to win so next week I will try to bring together all the allies of the center right”, explains the leader of the Carroccio, «In Rome I met Michetti and Martone, in Milan there are four or five possible candidates who have made themselves available, the other cities as far as I’m concerned are all in place. We have basically finished the job ».
Meanwhile, with a very suspicious timing, the “Racca case” opens. According to the Turin prosecutor, the president of Federfarma would have created a fake Facebook profile to discredit the rival who was competing for the national presidency of the trade association. The Turin prosecutor, Gianfranco Colace, hypothesizes the crime of defamation and substitution of person against Annarosa Racca, current president of Federfarma Milan and Lombardy, and five other people. Victim Marco Cossolo, president of Federfarma Turin. According to the indictment, Racca would have written posts against Cossolo attributing to him behaviors that damaged Federfarma. To do this allegedly stole a photo from the internet and allegedly used the false name of Michela Franceschet ti, claiming to be a pharmacist. Cossolo had made a complaint against unknown persons in an attempt to obscure the contents and from that moment both the Franceschetti and Racca pages have been deleted, as if someone did not want to leave traces. A coincidence of times that made the investigators suspicious who came to discover how the fake profile was managed by Michela Giuliana, a pharmacist who would have been appointed by Camilla Morabito, owner of a company that took care of the public relations of Racca and the national Federfarma. The name of the pharmacist, in recent weeks, has entered the shortlist of possible candidates as mayor of the center-right. Given the action of the robes, it remains to understand what the center-right will do. On the table, remain the names of Oscar di Montigny, president of Flowe and son-in-law of Ennio Doris, of Maurizio Dallocchio, professor of Bocconi (although his orientation would be a “no, thank you”) and Riccardo Ruggiero, former Telecom manager. Not even the idea of Roberto Rasia, supported by the League, would have faded.
