(ANSA) – ROME, MARCH 10 – “We are in the square for the largest event of seaside resorts in recent years. There is no more time, we are here to defend the work of our families and the work of our employees”. Enrico Schiappapietra, vice president of the Sib Sindacato Italiano Balneari (member of Fipe Confcommercio), said this to ANSA, a few minutes before the start of the national demonstration of the sector “against the shame law” organized together with Fiba (the association of Confesercenti bathing ) in Rome in Piazza Santi Apostoli.
“We made – he says – only one mistake, a serious mistake: trusting the laws of the State. We rented a parking space from the State, we parked our car (our company) there, we worked to improve it with effort and effort. Now the State tells us that it is putting our parking space to tender: it is a pity that by competing for the parking space it is also putting our company up for tender, free of charge, the work of a lifetime.
And it is not fair and we are here to protest. “He adds:” We are people who have always been willing to talk and sit at a table, available but we also know how to be lions when we need to be “.
“We are not alone, we are small family businesses and we are with great pleasure alongside the administrations, mayors, governors and provincial administrators, because this rule, in addition to being unjust, negative and destructive for the world of bathing establishments, is inapplicable from an administrative point of view” .
