All we need is… a dump!

January 10, 2008

…tons of rubbish in the streets are not what we would call a “bella figura”; Italy and Italians are not properly appearing as “civilized” in front of the world looking at us…

the problem here is that problems are always hard to solve…

Trash emergiences are at least 14 years old, but no solution has ever been practised; probably the reasons is well explained by that popular saying that roughly goes like this: everybody is competent enough (to find a solution) but nobody is responsible (for actually carrying it out).

It’s like if Italians have an idea of themselves as funny, lifeloving, creative persons and are pleased with that and that’s it! without never seriously wondering on future.

As a famous Italian song says: “basta ca’ce’sta o’mare…” (all we need is sea and sun)

I remember once I read someone writing Italy is the place in a hyper-regulated Europe where people still debate with perfect intelligence what, really, the red in a stoplight might mean.

Probably, Italians should get rid – together with the trash – of their lack of civic sense that too often turns this wonderful land and its beautiful people looking like the land of non sense.
