“If there is no evidence that this is the work of a hooligan, the incident will have a specific meaning, and I will not compromise, I will not be intimidated. I have too much respect for myself, the work I do and of my readers”, Mingarelli told Ossigeno.
“The criminals have entered the parking lot of her property, and as such the gesture was almost certainly wanted. Everyone – the TG24 chief editor, Alessandro Andrelli wrote in a commentary article – should feel touched by such a gesture. Everyone should condemn it and express solidarity to Marina.
