They had just finished cleaning and we’re all set again: I don’t know who will pay the damages this time.” There is anger among the residents of Laglio. “It started to rain around 2, first slowly, then getting stronger – says a man – Suddenly the road turned into a raging river and broke through everything”. The flow of mud and debris prevents access to several houses. The mud has invested and almost entirely covered the access doors of many buildings. “It’s worse than the other times – says an old woman, supported by her niece – It’s a shame: every time they come to tell us what they will do here and there, but nothing has been seen.

This time at least there was no such serious damage. “


According to the mayor, however, “a national or regional project is needed that is specifically aimed at solving the problems of our area, otherwise certain situations will continue to repeat themselves indefinitely – he continues – At the moment, some citizens of Laglio find themselves for the umpteenth time. in the condition of not being able to leave the house because mud and debris have accumulated close to their homes.
