Forlì airport? Let's call it Mussolini
Protests against the idea put forward by the local director of Unindustria, who proposed to dedicate to the dictator Ridolfi airport
"Forlì airport? Let's call Mussolini"
Luigi Ridolfi Forlì aviator of World War I to Mussolini in Predappio. Is raising a fuss to the proposal of the director of Unindustria Forlì-Cesena, Massimo Balzani, to name Forlì airport to Benito Mussolini. "It 'was Mussolini to want this airport - said Balzani - and his name would probably be more visible."
In fact, visibility of the Forlì airport has a great need: failed to integrate the project with the Marconi and Fellini, Ridolfi currently has very few passengers and huge debts. But the controversy, this time, do not affect the financial statements.
The replies to the proposal to dust off the name of the dictator, predictably, have not had to wait. The Regional Council of Emilia-Romagna Thomas Casadei (Pd) speaks of "the wrong idea, instrumental, completely out of place." It proposes a "peaceful mobilization of all citizens of firm opposition to the wrong idea."
Also tough the comment of the Democratic Party Forli: "It 'a proposal inadmissible, that would deliver real benefits for the local economy," say local leaders of the party. "We want to store it as a bizarre and unacceptable provocation that should soon find a denial."
