A resolution adopted in 2016 by the Marche Region had provided for interventions to prevent the risk of a new flooding of the Misa river. After six years, however, they have not yet been realized
It is not enough to point the finger at climate change, as the secretary of the Democratic Party Enrico Letta immediately did, to comment the flood that devastated the Marche on Thursday evening, killing at least nine people in the provinces of Ancona and Pesaro-Urbino. It is not enough when the political class proves itself unable to administer its own territory. In this case a document seems to nail the Marche political class to their responsibilities.
