As for the Local Authorities in Ferrara when silencing research, they are second to none.
Manuela Zucchini, a local PRC politician, invited dottor Montanari to the Town Hall to explain that it would be pure simple folly to construct an incinerator. The door was then slammed shut in his face. I’ve thus decided to stay outside the door and to start an initiative that will be itinerant: “Science in the open air”.
Yesterday afternoon, Montanari spoke for 2 and a half hours to 300 people from Ferrara in front of the Town Hall and in the evening the square filled up with thousands of people to listen to Maurizio Pallante, an expert in energy policies and in environmental technology as well as myself. The mayor, Gaetano Sateriale and the local politicians barricaded themselves in to listen in silence inside the Town Hall a few meters away. At the end of the meeting, they left by a secondary exit leading into piazza Savonarola.
They feared the enthusiasm of the citizens. During the evening, 7,257.89 euro was collected for the environmental scanning electronic microscope. We’ve now reached 140,000 euro. We need to get 378,000 euro.
Next Sunday, June 4, we have organised a whole day called “A Saucerful of Secrets 2006”, from 9 in the morning until midnight.. It’s devoted to science, music and entertainment. It’ll be at the Canali di Reggio Emilia, near the agritourism establishment and the golf club called club La Razza. In the morning we will even have a golf competition. I’ll be there with the fantastic jazz and blues musicians Biagio Antonacci, Gino Paoli, Stefano Nosei, Vito (from Zelig), as well as the researchers Gatti and Montanari. You can find the programme at www.bortolanionlus.it.
