Politics with bated breath, in this end of the year full of expectations. In Rome the battle for the Quirinale is being prepared, unprecedented political axes are born and die and old alliances shake. In this context, the match for the Verona municipal elections still seems complicated. The agreement between the Lega and the Brothers of Italy (on which the respective managers for local authorities are working) seemed to have been reached but then slowed down, also blocking the agreements on candidates for mayor of other cities, starting from Padua to get to Genoa , Parma and Palermo. Brothers of Italy firm on the line of the first we solve Verona, reconfirming Sboarina, then let’s talk about the rest. But the Veronese League slows down, giving space to the voices that talk again, for example, of a possible candidacy of Lorenzo Fontana. And the situation is becoming paradoxical. In fact, only one candidate for mayor is already running belly to the ground: the big face of Flavio Tosi that stands out on the bus stops signals what in cycling is called a man on the run from the start of the race.
And the others? Sboarina, as we have seen, was forced to wait for news from Rome. Damiano Tommasi it seems to want to amplify the so-called expectation effect (well known in advertising but which sometimes works, other times less). And the outsiders, while numerous, are not all sure they really want to run to the end. Michele Croce (Prima Verona) talked about things to do thanks to the PNRR (in the press meeting that created the uproar we told you about and to which the Tosiano Paolo Meloni he claims to have been present) but he may well want to understand how Tosi’s race will go. Stefano Valdegamberi (Verona Vale) is giving a lot to do but his candidacy could also depend on how the League moves. Alberto Benetti (Verona Ci Crede) cultivates important relationships (real and curial, Machiavelli would say) but for now it does not seem to go further. Robertino Vicentini (Party of the Venetians) stopped and waiting, as well as Roberto Bussinello (possible candidate of Casa Pound) and a candidate candidate of the Communist Refoundation. After New Year we will know more.
