“Last Friday I asked the Government for a state of emergency, yesterday I claimed it: the head of the Civil Protection told us that the numbers of Piedmont and Lombardy are already in a state of emergency, but that since it is a choral choice the parameters of the other Regions are awaited. But I say: at least partially start with those who, like us, anticipated the times already 7 days ago “. So on the sidelines of an appointment in Turin, the governor of Piedmont Alberto Cirio on the serious water crisis in the area.
