Italian civil protection, a disaster is a ‘big event’

Stories and News No. 109

The Story:

Once upon a time there was a group of people.
The group of people was paid to take care of emergencies.
Emergencies due to disasters, natural or otherwise.

Disasters as the earthquakes...


Derailments...


Landslides...


Then the day came when someone (used to do several things at once) thought that the group of people could also deal with ‘big events’.
Big events mean big media and people attention.
Big media and people attention means big advertising revenues.
As for the canonization of Padre Pio...


For the Olympics in Turin...


And for the G8 in La Maddalena (then moved to L'Aquila)...


Once upon a time there was a group of people.
The group of people was paid to deal with disasters and big events.
Then came the day when they could no longer see the difference between them...
