“Opening on April 26th, with the possibility of catering only in the open air does not solve the problem – Said Viacavento –. Nobody will be able to open. In this season, it is impossible to anticipate the possibility of outdoor lunches and dinners. The latest decree stipulates that indoor catering services can be provided from June 1 only for lunch. These are more restrictive routes than last year when we were allowed to reopen on May 18th.

We ask to be present at the technical tables in Palermo to bring the voice of the class. We do not feel represented by commercial organizations. At the corporate levels, Re Cecilia wants to be present independently“.
