I spent two weeks with the lawyers before understanding anything about civic lists. Just look what I have to do. Today Iím starting with the first post and soon Iíll start up a special web site with every sort of information.
Civic lists, the virus of participative democracy, are a great possibility for reforming, perhaps restarting the country.
I have already put in writing and I repeat once more that I donít intend to form political parties. What I am committing to in the next few months is to use the blog and assign a symbol to promote the civic lists that have the characteristics and the commitments that I will publish.

Required characteristics:
1. At the moment that they become candidates and for the whole of the time that they are in office the candidates must not be signed up to any party or political group.
2. The candidate must not have ever been convicted in a criminal court, even if it is not definitive nor can they have ongoing proceedings relating to them at the moment that they are candidates.
3. The candidate must not have previously been an elected representative for more than one term of office, at a national or local level apart from for the neighbourhood where they are offering themselves as a candidate.
4.Every candidate must reside within the boundaries of the town or region (according to whether itís a matter of town or regional elections) where he or she is a candidate.

1. Every candidate commits to give up the elected seat if it should happen that during the period of elected office he or she loses or is shown to not have had from the beginning the minimum required characteristsics described above. Otherwise, the whole list loses the right to have their activity qualified as being certified by the blog.
2. At the time that it becomes a candidate, the list will publish on the Internet, in a special web site that is appropriate, the list of its candidates with their curriculum vitae in accordance with a standard that will be defined, as well as their manifesto setting out how they will govern and they will at the same time set up a blog open to all citizens so as to allow for the free exchange of opinions and criticisms with the people making up the civic list.
3. The list cannot associate with other parties or lists , unless they are certified by the blog, to govern the town or the region.

Give your thoughts and suggestions to the points presented with a comment (for example what information the candidatesí CVs should have).
I will publish the way the certification will take place, the symbol, the way the right to use the symbol will happen as well as the limits and the terms of use in the next few days.

Ps.Click on the photo of the "mastellamobile" to see all the photos on Flickr. Publish the photos, publish, publish...

E` vero che molte delle situazioni sociali italiane e politiche sono ridicole e ben sottolineate anche all'estero da dove scrivo, se non fosse pero` che la situazione italiana fa venire il pianto per lo sfacelo italiano. Sfortunatamene, la politica deve essere seria. Non so in cosa le liste civiche possano contribuire, perche per riformare la situazione presente ci vuole un'organizzazione coordinata da qualcuno e con un piano ben preciso. Se queste energie non si focalizzano al piu presto, sono convinto che si tornera` al piu presto all'amorfo di prima, dove il "Bel Paese" e` solo tale per alcuni furbi. Dario

I just realized that english is requested on this section.
Congratulations for your work.
Thanks for keeping people who are abroad like me constantly informed about the situation of the "boot".
A special thanks to you and the artists for carrying out the "mastellamobile" photo works.
I have tears in my eyes (from laughing) after looking at them.

Grazie Beppe, sei un genio.
Sono scappatp dall'italia da un anno e sei la mia prima fonte d'informazione, di incazzature, di risate talvolta.
Ho le lacrime agli occhi dopo aver dato una scorsa ai montaggi della "mastellamobile" (dal ridere).
Complimenti a te per l'idea e a quei geni degli artisti per le realizzazioni.
