Chiampa, Chiampa, Chiampa. Lčon, Lčon, Lčon.


Chiamparino was born in 1948 at Muncalč. He was a busy boy. He used the sand in the courtyard of his home to make car parks and tunnels.
A sign of his predestination. In the future he will build the underground car park of Piazza San Carlo and will often spend the weekend in Val di Susa in the TAV building sites with a bucket and spade.
He meets Mastella during a school trip to Ceppaloni, they play at cops and robbers with a pardon and they have their afternoon snack together. At that point he’s convinced that his future lies in politics. At age 25 he’s already leader of the PCI in Moncalieri.
During his life, always busy, he does everything, always paid for by the State: town councilor, secretary of the province, member of the Lower House and also Mayor. The latter position originates in a sad story.
In fact he substitutes Turin’s Mayor who died suddenly. From that moment Chiampa wears a black arm band and has a characteristic funereal presence.
The plebs love him, but would like to see him working for at least once in his life. In the 1994 national elections the manual labourers of Mirafiori send him a message. They give a mass vote to the Forza Italia candidate, Meluzzi, who is standing against him.
Chiamparino understands. He invites Lunardi to his home for dinner and after they have washed the pots he revives the economy of Piedmont and his own electoral fortunes.
Cement, bypasses and incinerators become his ideological reference points, together with the cemeteries where he spends his Friday evenings searching for inspiration and trying to control the exhumations.
Berlusconi notices him because of his battles and decides to help him by proposing Buttiglione as Mayor of Turin. A happy choice. Buttiglione loses abysmally.
Chiampa wins with the number of the beast: 66.6%. He starts to get fit by running in the mountains talking at a distance to the inhabitants of Venaus who would like to keep him informed.
Incinerators fascinate him and he decides to make them into his new crusade. Chiampa Chiampa Chiampa. Lčon Lčon Lčon.
Watch the fantastic video with Chiampa water-valued done by the young people of the Turin meet up.

PS. Today 21/04 at 5:00pm I will participate in a public debate about incinerators and about Mediapolis at la Serra in Ivrea. There’ll be Maurizio Pallante a consultant to the Ministry of the Environment as well as Lega Ambiente, the FAI and other organisations.

The Laogai is the fruit of communism.

Market capitalism is finally raising China out of the economic misery which communism brought about. Eventually, it will also raise the country out of the humanitarian misery which communism produced.

If you want to stop the Laogais and the conditions that produce it, buy Chinese products.

Grillo says that Chiamparino has been elected by a two-thirds majority.

That´s democracy at work.

If the citizens are not happy after his mandate, they will just vote him out of office.
