(ANSA) – MANTOVA, 10 SEPTEMBER – “The Mafia theme has disappeared from the electoral campaign because it does not bring votes. It leads to the distancing of those who listen to you. If for years you don’t get used to the public debate on these issues, it becomes out of date”. Roberto Saviano said this in one of the most crowded meetings of the Mantua Literature Festival which closes on 11 September, speaking of “Giovanni Falcone, the man beyond the hero” to whom he dedicated the novel ‘Only is courage’ ( Bompiani). “Politics has still abdicated everything to the judiciary making a huge mistake. ‘You don’t have to ask us who to vote for,’ said Falcone,” Saviano explained in front of a crowd of 900 people who applauded him several times in Piazza Castello. “It is very difficult to be able to tell the reasons that lead to feeling such a deep closeness with Falcone.
What is it that connects us to him so much? The desire that there is the possibility, somewhere, of being able to transform our country “explained the writer. (ANSA).
