800 (another number…)

Guido Ruotolo on La Stampa (Turin based newspaper) tells the tale of the 800 italians elected that weren’t even supposed to be on the list they were in.

The “800” are Members of Parliament, or members of city, province or region council that have had – before the election – problems with justice. The list with their names is at Palazzo San Macuto (home of the Inquisition in XVI century) now home of many Parliament offices.

No one will ever see those names… they are protected by the laws that rules privacy matters: the right of someone trespassing the law prevail on the community right to know who disobey the law. Welcome to Italy.
