The case Ilva was born on August 2, 2012 when they seized the largest steel industry, among the largest in Europe, perhaps the second, and above all they unfairly went against the Riva family who made a lot of investments, even in the environment.
Since August 2, 2012, the undersigned, who is not a genius or a PhD from Harvard (fortunately), said something very simple: Steel is dead in Italy. Since that day, 12 years have passed, 37 ministers and various prime ministers have approved a dozen “save Ilva” decrees. But they didn’t understand a thing: a private company can only be saved with a private entrepreneur, not with these statist crooks.
They destroyed Ilva because these communists, including the Only 24 hours and Confindustria, which remained silent, expropriated Ilva legitimate ownersinstead of asking him to make more investments and close the coal fields.
Instead of demanding from private individuals what they could and should have demanded, what did they tell us? That thousands of people die. And do you know what’s new today?
- That Ilva is dead and we taxpayers will pay this defeat.
- Which we are going to buy steel from the Chinese, without even being able to pass through the Suez Canal because the Americans have to defend us there.
- That we will continue to pollute because, as we saw in Bagnoli, when production sites are abandoned they pollute even more.
What did we get then? Nothing. Journalists, magistrates and commentators have told us all nonsense, not understanding that a blast furnace cannot be managed by any commissioner or manager, but only by a family that invests money and resources.
