25 is not enough

This is the Dancing Satyr of Mazara del Vallo, a greek bronze statue more than 2.000 years old, that was “fished” off the coast of Sicily in 1998.

It is now kept in Museo del Satiro in the church of Sant’Egidio, in Mazara del Vallo, Sicily.

The City Mayor is now writing to the Regione Sicilia Offices that has responsability over the Museum, complaining about the fact that the 25 people staff (for a 2.150 sq ft museum) is not able to guarantee enough opening hours on sundays and holidays.

I fought the law and the law won

Bernardino Budroni died on july 11th 2011. He was shot by the police after a long getaway with his car. His death was not enough to put an end to the court actions against him.

He eneded up being sentenced 25 months in prison. Sentence was pronounced on july 8th 2013, right 2 years after his death. And now he gets a € 150,00 fine for illegal weapon possession. That is 31 months after his death.

Welcom to italian justice.
