They left their shoes there and the women moved to one side of the square.
The choral cry followed: “We are the Alitalia“, Which they repeated for several minutes. “Naked, without work and dignity” was the message they wanted to get across.
Passers-by began to applaud as the flight attendants hugged in a long hug, closing those who had burst into redemptive tears between them.
It lasted half an hour flash mob and then they left. “We came – they explained – to express our pain first of all. Solidarity, however, goes to all our colleagues who were invited to Ita Airways “and they were forced to sign a humiliating and destructive employment contract,” they said.
