They rarely have luck. This must be said immediately. Suffice it to recall the case of Pippo Franco at the Administrative Offices of last autumn. Although they are often defeated, VIPs tend to try and get involved in politics. In Italy and abroad. At the Administrative on Sunday 12 June (voting from 7 to 23) there are some famous people in the running and some of the same name. The best known name is that of Claudio Cecchetto who is a candidate for mayor of Riccione.
It is not the first time that the DJ and music producer has tried it. Seventy years old for a couple of months he had already always raced in Romagna. In Misano Adriatico, which borders on Riccione, was defeated a few years ago. He defines himself for a zero kilometer policy, outside the lines, “for me only the people of Riccione count”. For him Riccione is a brand. «Everyone remembers the Acquafan, a model I invented myself. It is not enough just to cover the holes, that is the obvious, you have to think about the extraordinary things that can be achieved ».
He comes from the world of football Damiano Tommasi. The former Roma midfielder of the national team, former president of the Italian Footballers’ Association and federal councilor, leads the center-left, Renzians excluded, in a city that has been led by the right for more than twenty years. Never a member of a party, he presents himself as civic and finds the simplest politics of Serie A. As a Catholic, he focuses on values: community, family, care, proximity, well-being, solidarity. The defect of Verona told to Repubblica: «Verona is enough. It is a city with an international profile, which never looks up beyond its walls. In recent years more than ever ».
In Verona he could have been a candidate Morgan, as leaders, for Vittorio Sgarbi’s list, in the end nothing has been done here as in Parma. In Cesano Maderno there is a Michele Santoro candidate for Forza Italia. Just a case of homonymy, no relationship with the journalist.
Maybe it wasn’t a name known to everyone before this election, but Doha Zaghi she became famous for her candidacy. The 31-year-old who calls herself a mistress and uses the stage name of Lady Demonique was blocked from Carlo Calenda’s Action list in Como where she wanted to run for the City Council. You tried to run for mayor of San Bartolomeo Val Cavargna, but the electoral commission’s no. You are a candidate thanks to the victory of the appeal to the TAR of Milan for the Gay party for LGBT +, Solidarity, Environmentalist and Liberal rights.
