All over the world it is known that Italy is coping with the thorny issue of garbage disposal. This problem concerns not only the city of Naples but also my town Enna located in the center of Sicily.
Let us examine the facts. In truth there is a difference between the situation of Naples and my town. Naples is located in Campania, a region where the population density is very high, so it is really difficult to find garbage dumps faraway from built-up areas. My town indeed is located in the center of Sicily and isolated, faraway from other towns. Near Enna there is a very wide garbage dump, so I cannot see why my town is so overwhelmed with mountains of garbage.
Today, when I was walking along the street, by chance, I was interviewed by a national network. They asked me: “Who is the responsible of the chaos of the waste in Enna?” “Politicians” was my answer. Then I continued, “The cause is lacking of culture in politician class, so they are not able to manage the situation”.
Nevertheless when watching the television I saw the report, only the talk of the mayor of my town appeared, and my interview was omitted, it was cut off. Is this democracy? Is this transparency?
The place of my town where I was interviewed is called Napoleone Colajanni square. Napoleone Colajanny was a politician of my town but also a scholar. He was a sociologist. In 1892 he unveiled the scandal of Roman Bank. He wrote books about mafia as well. He was an honest politician. He considered politics as service to people. Nowadays politicians consider politics as service to themselves!
I have written a book “Travels of the Mind”. In it I point out a new way of living. My website is http://www.ettoregrillo.com
