Luca Ferrarini on Juv&Me: Words About Mayor Nardella

Last night, during the Twitch broadcast on the Juv&Me channel, now available on YouTube by clicking here, Luca Ferrarini, the Director of Communications for the Jdentità Bianconera Foundation, made some important statements. Below are some key points:

The Jdentità Bianconera Foundation deemed it necessary to address the Mayor of Florence, Dr. Dario Nardella, with a request to take responsibility in his institutional role for his statements. In this specific case, to justify the European Commission’s denial of using public funds from the PNRR to build a new stadium in Florence, the mayor chose to blame “Juventini” from Brussels. It appears rather peculiar that someone holding an institutional position of that level should resort to such remarks to divert attention from his own failure, and it seems even more audacious to associate Stadium-Brussels-Juventus Fans.

We are absolutely certain that Dr. Nardella had no intention of bringing up the issue of the Heysel tragedy; this is clear.

However, it is equally true that Viola fans (like others) often have the bad habit of using the wounds of the 39 victims of the 1985 incident as an insult or offense directed at Juventus fans.

We were surprised to see how a mayor representing a city – and not just those who support his preferred team – could make such an unfortunate statement. We, therefore, ask him to distance himself from it and acknowledge the mistake.

As a Foundation, we always emphasize that the values of sports, which we often seem to have forgotten, must be the foundation for a culture of respect, education in victory, and recognition of the worth of opponents in defeat.

Sport has always been a metaphor and a reflection of the society in which we live, and we expect that people holding institutional and political roles do not use their positions to incite tensions, accentuate divisions, or pour fuel on the flames of the fiercest rivalries.
