POWER – Not even one euro for synergy between public and private in the cultural sector. Ignores months of work and discussion with sector operators to prepare a three-year program on the topic at the height of an important legacy, such as that of Matera, European Capital of Culture 2019.
This was the latest insult that yesterday morning pushed Dina Sileo to hand over the delegation of “cultural promotion activities for the relaunch and socio-economic development of Basilicata”, which had been awarded to her in November this year in the hands of Governor Vito Bardi 2020.
The former Northern League regional councilor, who last month walked through the mixed group to protest the absence between the Carroccio benches at the time of the regional council’s confidence vote, trusted her bitterness to a long tone. And against the background of a political reflection inaugurated for some time now marks more and more distances to the regional majority. Without also ruling out a vote on the regional economic maneuver, which should return today to the consideration of the joint committees of the Lucanian Parliament.
“The delegation for culture and international cooperation, for a region that sees the human component, young people, women and men, as the most fragile and now rare resource in the territory, entails responsibilities that should make its wrists shake.” Sileo explained. “Not so much just because culture is strategic for the whole Italian system, also in the context of the national recovery and resistance plan, but because in Basilicata it even assumes a director who is able to determine its very existence in terms of identity. and necessary progress, to put an end to the increasingly widespread phenomenon of socio-relational mediocrity “.
“With this awareness – added Sileo – I humbly and enthusiastically embraced the challenging process of knowledge about the phenomena pertaining to the cultural system. I listened to hundreds of operators, I learned a lot from them, and I tried to bring my new knowledge and suggestions to value by doing what a Regional Councilor should do: translate ideas and programming into laws, into operational tools that are useful to mark clear paths and functional. It has happened: I have drafted a single text to regulate public-private synergies. A text, accompanied by the three-year plan, ready for months and made available to the President of the Regional Council, delegates the matter and guarantor to the Council in the implementation of what its delegates produce as a synthesis of important work. I did what I could, I did everything I could ».
“In this context,” Sileo continues, “it is crucial to recognize that during the recent consultation in the Committee of the Chief of Staff (also responsible for the Office of Cultural Systems) and the budgetary and planning executive, the provisional allocation for the three-year period 2022 / 2024 is completely insignificant and even zero in terms of programming.No trace of the address I have given through the proposed consolidated law.The synthesis of this evidence is quickly made: the indications of the holder of the power of attorney are not simply not recognized , but is completely ignored. In the end, it is inferred that the delegation itself is devoid of content and takes the form of merely an exercise in attributing a pathetic banner. Since the public administration, in addition to executive orders, expresses itself in public acts, and the most important of the acts n etop is the budget, I note the reality expressed by the facts and avoid the burden of indolence that the exercise of a delegation entailed. in such terms would entail “.
“There is also – Sileo insisted – a completely subjective assessment, matured over months and now irreversibly crystallized, leading me to much broader reflections of a political nature. When sharing administrative processes of an institutional nature constantly gives embarrassment and discomfort, it is not the journey that is wrong; more likely it is the travel companions who are not compatible. With these reasons, further driven by the events recorded on the board, by the now usual style of character that characterizes the administrative action, my personal history and above all my expectations of contributing to the choice of very different models of society will force forth. me to evaluate to a very different extent in the exercise of my mandate for public representation “.
“Consistently – concluded the member of the Regional Council – I start with the immediate termination of the post at the time I was given a delegation decree from the President of the Regional Council”.
