Water, water everywhere… Laura Clarke


alk through any major square in Italy over the next couple of weeks and chances are you will be stopped and asked to lend your support to a campaign titled “L’acqua non si vende”, or “Water is not for sale”. The campaign, which runs until 24 July, is an initiative of the Forum Italiano dei Movimenti per l’Acqua, a network of national associations and local committees that is collecting signatures for a referendum against the liberalisation of Italy’s water system. As of 21 June over one million signatures had been gathered – 500,000 more than are needed to call a referendum – according to the Forum’s website In Rome in mid-June protesters covered the characteristic public drinking fountains or nasoni (literally meaning “big nose”, a reference to the nose-shaped spout) with black plastic bags, padlocks, chains, posters and Opponents of the privatisation of water services demonstrate other material to draw attention to the camin Rome ahead of World Water Day last spring. paign.

However opponents management of water services which, despite earlier moves towards argue that water is a common good and that access is a fundamental privatisation, is still largely the prerogative of the local authorities (see right and as such that it cannot be subject to the laws of the free marWater services in Italy box).

Comitato Cittadino Difesa Acqua Pubblica di Aprilia. This has prompted residents of one town, Aprilia, to refuse to pay their bills and demand that the local council resume management of the water supply. In the province of Terni in Umbria residents currently pay an average of €2,11 per cubic metre to their water provider, a mixed capital company called Servizio Idrico Integrato (SII) which was awarded the concession in 2003. This compares with an average rate of €0.61 per cubic metre in 2002. Local Forum Italiano dei Movimenti per l'Acqua representative and Terni resident Maria Cristina Garofalo says that in her neighbourhood services have deteriorated over the same period, with supplies failing to keep pace with new building and increased demand. Similar tariffs apply in the province of Arezzo and part of the province of Siena in Tuscany, where water services have been managed since 1999 by Nuove Acque SpA, a public-private company owned to 46.16 per cent by the consortium Intesa Aretina led by Gas de France (GDF) Suez and with participation by ACEA SpA. However here price hikes have corresponded to a real improvement in water quality, prompting many consumers to shift from bottled mineral water to tap water. In light of the Ronchi law in May Italian utility group Iride and investment fund F2i announced a voluntary total takeover bid for Mediterranea delle Acque SpA, the company that currently Provisions to privatise manages water serfurther the management vices in most municipalities in the province of Italy’s water supply of Genova, as part of a project “for the conhave met with opposition centration and development of water activfrom consumers ities” according to a joint Iride and F2i press release. Iride already owns just over 68 per cent of Mediterranea delle Acque SpA through its subsidiary Iride Acqua e Gas SpA. Likewise the main private shareholders in ACEA SpA, Roman real estate developer and media magnate Francesco Gaetano Caltagirone and GDF Suez (the same group that has stakes in Nuove Acque SpA in Tuscany), recently increased their shares in the company to just under 13 per cent and just over 10 per cent respectively, possibly in anticipation of the obligatory sale by Rome city council of at least 21 per cent of its present 51 per cent stake. ACEA SpA was once a local Rome company but according to its website it is now the largest supplier of water in the country, with interests in Tuscany, Umbria and Campania as well as Lazio. Experts say clear rules on privatisation and an independent water business regulator are still needed before there can be a significant increase in private investment in Italy’s water industry. These, according to EU affairs minister Ronchi, should be in place by the end of the year. So it may only be a matter of time before these early manoeuvrings by providers give way to a flurry of merger and acquisition activity in the sector. The result could be a concentration of the management of water supplies in the hands of just a small number of private operators with uncertain benefits for consumers and services at large.

Referendum The Forum Italiano dei Movimenti per l’Acqua is promoting a referendum against the privatisation of public water management services. Three questions have been put forward. The first seeks to repeal the part of the 2009 Ronchi law about the greater participation of private capital in water management services; the second to repeal part of the earlier Galli reform concerning the assignment of water management concessions to thirdparties; and the third to repeal part of the same reform requiring water rates to allow for “an adequate return on invested capital” on grounds that any profits should be reinvested back into the improvement of services. For the referendum to go ahead the supreme court of cassation first needs to validate the 500,000 signatures needed and the constitutional court to confirm the constitutionality of the proposal. Only then can a date be set for the referendum. If all goes to plan the vote will be held in spring 2011.

A tough budget for tough times Austerity is the keyword in this year’s budget, with the regions, local administrations and public sector workers bearing the brunt of the cuts

James Walston


Left: economy minister Giulio Tremonti must persuade Italians to accept the proposed budget cuts. Right: the normally retiring Gianni Letta, Berlusconi’s right-hand man, had to tell the country that the economy is in a sorry state.

fter two years of hearing prime minister Silvio Berlusconi tell Italy that the economy was in fine shape and that Italians were better off than their European fellows, the message has been reversed. Berlusconi, the eternal optimist, could not bring himself to break the news so it was delivered by Gianni Letta, who is officially just an undersecretary in the prime minister’s office but in practice has been Berlusconi’s principal advisor and confidant since he went into politics in 1993. The fact that the otherwise retiring Letta spoke in public showed the gravity of the situation. The minister for the economy, Giulio Tremonti, had been saying for months that cuts and savings were necessary and he is now the person who will have to pilot the budget through parliament and deal with the rising opposition to the proposed cuts in services. Berlusconi and government insist that there will be no new taxes: “We won’t put our hands in Italians’ pockets,” the prime minister has repeated, as well as promising that there will be no business taxes. The proposal instead is to cut. The budget will be reduced by €24 billion in 2011-2012. Despite the fierce debate that it has provoked, the figure is relatively small compared to almost all European economies. Italy’s cuts are 0.5 per cent of gross domestic product (GDP) for this year and 0.8 per cent for next year, compared to 2.5 per cent and 2.9 per cent for Spain, 2.5 per cent and 3.1 per cent for Portugal, 3 per cent and 2 per cent for Ireland and, not surprisingly, a massive 7 per cent and 4 per cent for Greece. Even virtuous Germany is due to cut €80 billion over the next four years (0.4 per cent of GDP in 2011). Outside the eurozone, the new British government introduced an emergency austerity budget in June. Olli Rehn, the European commissioner for economic and monetary affairs, has praised the Italian plan. The commission is concerned that all members of the European Union (EU) keep within the budget deficit and national debt limits for the eurozone, and Italy is way over both. In 2009 the budget deficit was 5.3 per cent of GDP and the latest proposed cuts and savings are designed to bring it down to 2.7 per cent of GDP, which is within the 3 per cent allowed by the EU. The public debt, which was around 115 per cent of GDP in 2009, is one of the highest in the eurozone and is set to rise (maybe even to 118 per cent this year) if the economy stagnates as a result of the budget cuts. The biggest single saving comes from cuts to regional governments (€10-11 billion) and local administrations. In Italy almost the whole of local and regional government income comes from Rome and these cuts will bite deeply. The regions and the cities spend but they do not tax. Some have been very efficient in industrial development, transport, health and welfare. Others have used their funds to build electoral support rather than long-term growth. In Lombardy there is one regional employee per 1,800 residents. In Campania there are four times as many, one per 472, and in Molise eight times as many, one per 226. In Sicily in 2008 the average annual wage 7 July 2010

for the 19,129 regional civil servants was €42,756, or 40 per cent more than for ministerial civil servants. Between 2004 and 2008 wages rose by 38 per cent despite central government instructions to reduce them. It is little wonder that the president of the Lombardy region, Roberto Formigoni, accused the government of destroying the proposed fiscal federalism and even went so far as to call the proposed budget “unconstitutional”. The president of the conference of regional presidents, Vasco Errani of Emilia Romagna, called the budget’s indiscriminate cuts “unsustainable”. Formigoni is centre-right and Errani centre-left but they are united against the measure. Former economy minister and university economist Tiziano Treu said that “linear cuts across the board are not only unjust but they don’t work.” The government is going to have to work very hard to get its own supporters on board in the regions and the cities. One item is for a €10 tourist tax in Rome and the centre-right mayor, Gianni Alemanno, has accepted it, but the new president of Lazio, Renata Polverini, also centre-right, has criticised it and, not surprisingly, the hotel trade hates it. The proposal is liable to change in parliament and it is not clear when it would come into effect if passed. Most of the rest of the savings will come from public sector pay cuts or lack of pay rises. Automatic cost-of-living pay rises for seniority will go and the proposal has produced a storm of protest from unions which feel that public sector workers are being forced to carry most of the weight of the cuts. Magistrates even decided to take symbolic action, striking for an hour. Other measures include small reductions in politicians’ wages and in perks such as official cars. As in most budgets, there is a call to reduce tax evasion, reckoned to be around €120 billion per annum, or five times this austerity budget. This time any city administration that uncovers evasion will be able to keep a third of what is recovered. And, once again, there is an amnesty, this time for so-called “ghost houses”: houses that have been built but were never registered so are not subject to taxation. The first draft of the budget law included the abolition of smaller provinces. The intention was that all provinces should have been abolished when the regions were set up in 1970, but instead they have grown in number. This time eight were supposed to be suppressed, then it was five by excluding the mountainous ones. Now it seems that all will survive the axe. Even though the budget was shown to president of the republic Giorgio Napolitano and apparently given his unofficial approval in May before it went to parliament, the government will have to fight hard to overcome the opposition from the regions and the unions. Berlusconi clearly dislikes introducing unpopular measures but if he does not he will appear weak, which is much worse. There will be an austerity budget but there will also be much debate around it.

Rome 1V page 15 Everybody Welcome, Everything Free.

10 June-31 Oct. Organised to celebrate 90 years of friendship between the Knights of Columbus and the city of Rome. This exhibition traces the history of the Catholic mutual aid society founded in 1881 by Father Michael J. McGivney. Photographs, portraits, documents and newspaper articles are on show, as well as fragments of the Allied bombs that fell on the Knights of Columbus’ playground in S. Lorenzo in 1943 and the original letter from Pope Pius XII to US president Franklin Roosevelt – carried by the Knights of Columbus’ representative in Rome – pleading that the city be spared from Allied bombing. “Everybody Welcome, Everything Free” was the motto of the Knights when they first came to Rome serving US troops stationed in Italy and throughout Europe during world war one. The initiative so impressed Pope Benedict XV that he invited the society to maintain a permanent presence in Rome. Capitoline Museums, Palazzo Nuovo, tel. 060608. 09.00-20.00. Mon closed. NEW 2V page 15 Drawn with light. 28 April-18 July. Carl

P opera Opera Notes Both the Festival della Valle d’Itria in Martina Franca and the Cantiere Internazionale d’Arte di Montepulciano in Tuscany offer opera fans the chance to hear unusual and rarely performed works. La 36a edizione del Festival della Valle d’Itria prende il via a Martina Franca (15 luglio-4 agosto) con diversi nomi importanti e affermati tra i partecipanti. Tiziana Fabbricini (la prima Violetta alla Scala con Muti dopo Maria Callas) e Alfonso Antoniozzi canteranno in Napoli milionaria di Nino Rota (15 e 17 luglio): un dramma lirico in tre atti tratto dall’omonima “pièce” di Eduardo De Filippo, data in prima assoluta a Spoleto nel 1977 e da allora mai più riproposta. Gianni di Parigi (18 e 20 luglio) è un titolo tra i meno noti di Donizetti, ma è ricco di trovate sceniche e di pregevole musica; tra i protagonisti ci saranno Antonio Di Candia e Ekaterina Lekhina, il soprano di coloratura che è stato molto apprezzato come Olympia nell’ultima edizione di Les contes d’Hoffmann di Offenbach a Montecarlo. Il festival si chiude con Rodelinda di Händel (2 e 4 agosto), un’opera che alla protagonista affida ben nove arie tutte molte belle, alcune poi sono addirittura memorabili; sarà interpretata da Sonia Ganassi, attualmente uno dei nomi eccellenti sia nel repertorio “belcantistico” sia in quello francese.

Il 35° Cantiere Internazionale d’Arte di Montepulciano propone tre opere. La prima è Un giorno di regno di Verdi (15, 17 e 18 luglio): l’unico lavoro giocoso del compositore se si eccettua Falstaff (che è più una commedia crepuscolare) e scelto per ricordare il 150° anniversario dell’Unità d’Italia. Seguirà Albert Herring di Britten (24 e 25 luglio): un’opera da camera che al posto dei dialoghi parlati ha i recitativi accompagnati dal pianoforte e che deve le sue suggestive sonorità a un’orchestra di soli 12 elementi. Entrambe le opere saranno affidate a Roland Böer (il direttore musicale del festival) e alla Royal Northern College of Music Orchestra di Manchester. In programma anche Luci mie traditrici di Salvatore Sciarrino (31 luglio e 1 agosto), un’opera composta nel 1998 che arriva in prima assoluta italiana dopo numerose rappresentazioni all’estero; sarà diretta da Marco Angius e suonata da Ensemble Algoritmo. Gran finale con la IX Sinfonia di Beethoven e Un sopravvissuto di Varsavia di Schönberg (1 agosto); il celeberrimo “Inno alla gioia” e gli orrori nazisti dell’ultima guerra uniti insieme per bandite dal mondo tutte le guerre e tutti gli odi.

Tivoli Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui. 16, 17 July. In Babel, choreography by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui. For FestiVAI Internazionale di Villa Adriana. This latest work by the Flemish-Moroccan choreographer has been co-written with Damien Jalet and has a set designed by Antony Gormley. It is the last installment of a triptych that began with Foi and Myth. The work is described as a kaleidoscopic musing on language and humanity. Cherkaoui’s trade-mark is the use of hand movements to create alternative languages, and it is used to brilliant effect in Babel. Gormley’s simple empty cubes and rectangles are transformed by the dancers into a series of sets, culminating in the shape of the tower of Babel. Cherkaoui intersperses comic interludes with manic dances and geometric arrangements, accompanied by Asiatic percussion and chanting.

Blues jazz under the waterfall Margaret Stenhouse


ou wouldn’t expect American blues stars such as Luther Allison, Ruthie Foster, Derek Trucks and James Brown’s solo saxophonist Maceo Parker to be performing in a backwater in the heart of an obscure area of the Ciociaria region, half way between Rome and Naples. And yet every July the little town of Isola Liri in the province of Frosinone stages a world-class blues festival that attracts thousands of fans. Isola Liri is a typical example of the cultural vitality to be found in small communities all over Italy. In addition to the blues festival, during the course of the year there is a poetry festival, a light music festival, a sounds of the world ethnic event and a musical band review, as well as the usual annual sagre, or religious and gastronomic feast days, and folklore events that are staged by almost every community throughout the country. Liri Blues Festival is, however, the big event of the year and it would be hard to imagine a more stunning setting. Isola Liri is, as the name suggests, an island town set in a fork of the Liri river and linked to the surrounding valley by bridges.

The 23rd edition of the Liri Blues Festival opens in Isola Liri on 15 July with five nights of concerts by top American musicians

The festival was founded 23 years ago by two men who shared a passion for American blues music. “Luciano Duro, who was a town councillor for education and culture in Isola Liri, had the idea,” explains Tommaso Cerroni, who organises the event through his company, Duke and Bird. Cerroni, thanks to his organisational skills and contacts with the American music world, brought in the big names and transformed the event into what the Musical News website describes as “one of the most important blues festivals in Italy and perhaps the most truly authentic.” Because of the festival, Isola Liri is twinned with New Orleans and Cerroni has become an honorary citizen of the city. 7 July 2010

“We don’t see this festival as a business. It was born from our love of music and the desire to revitalise one of the most beautiful towns in Ciociaria and create work opportunities for the young people,” says Cerroni. Attendance at the festival is free of charge. The performances, which sometimes last from dusk to dawn, take place in the open, in the town’s main square, Piazza Boncompagni. Last year’s edition featured 70 international musicians spread over five evenings, with an average audience of 6,000, including tourists from all over Italy, as well as Sweden, Switzerland and France. This year’s programme bills Texan star vocalist Foster, a Grammy award nominee for the 2009 Best Contemporary Blues Album; Earl Thomas, four-times winner of the San Diego Blues Music Award with his unique soul-funky sound; Malcolm Rebennack, better known as Dr John and the Lower 911, who is considered the most important jazz pianist of New Orleans; writer, lecturer and guitarist Rusty Wright with Michael Burks; and the Dr Sunflower brass quartet with Daniele Sepe and Otis Taylor, hailed as one of the greatest and most provocative bluesmen of the last 20 years. “We identify with the ‘Delta’ – that’s the area around the Mississippi river delta, where the blues was born. The slaves on the cotton plantations would gather at the end of the day to console themselves with songs and music on the banks of the river,” Cerroni explains. “Isola Liri was once a thriving industrial centre for paper making, so this was a working-class community. Here in the evenings too the workmen would meet up on the banks of the river Liri to play their guitars and sing together.” The paper-making industry suffered a progressive decline from the 1970s onwards, when paper mill production dropped as more efficient manufacturing methods came in. The old factories now lie abandoned and the machinery and mill wheels have become museum pieces, displayed in the park around Above: Texan vocalist Ruthie the public library at the foot of the Valcatoio falls near Foster opens this the Roma bridge, the town’s main entrance coming year's line-up on from Rome.

With the cuts to cultural activities recently announced by the present government, the situation has become even more dramatic. Cerroni, however, is determined to manage somehow: “We don’t intend to compromise on the quality of the festival,” he says firmly.
