THE TRIESTE COUNCIL BEAUROCRATS GOT THEIR KNICKERS IN A TWIST THIS WEEK.
18 September 1938, Benito Mussolini announced, from a balcony overlooking Piazza Unita,
to a huge welcoming crowd, the promulgation of the Racial Laws, which forbid the Jews any rights in Italy amongst other things.
An organisation headed by a certain Luciano Ferluga, had announced they would hold a meeting in the Piazza to recall this event and lend their voices to the denouncement of the Racial Laws.
BUT, someone in the Council offices issued a notice banning this meeting.
When the local newspaper Il Piccolo ran a full page article denouncing this notice, boy, did the powers that be get their knickers in a twist and scarper to get things put right.
The new Sindaco Dipiazza issued a condemnation of this ban and said the meeting should go ahead as planned. The ex-Sindaco Cosolini lent his voice to the condemnation and even went on Twitter with his comments!!
Reminds me of the old saying -- 'Never let your right hand etc, etc
