"Nato ai bordi di periferia..." Uhmm mi sa di no


Oggi il Sun ha criticato la scelta di David Beckham di trasferirsi in Via Amedeo D'Aosta, una bella via a poche centinaia di metri da casa mia. Dice, il tabloid, che David e Victoria vanno a vivere in un quartiere a luci rosse.
Visto che Moratti e De Corato quando si tratta di dover difendere la reputazione della città stanno zitti, al Sun ho scritto io. Ecco il testo.

I am a member of the Milan City Council and also David Beckham’s new neighbour.
I was surprised to read that my neighbourhood is viewed a sort of “red light district”.
Of course there is some prostitution, that’s true, but when I was younger I spent two summers between Earl’s Court and Notting Hill in London, and in comparison I really feel safer in my current neighbourhood.
I think that sometimes when English newspapers speak about Italy, they have a prejudice, but I want to assure David Beckham that Paolo Maldini gave him a good advice to come to this part of the city. Via Plinio and Via Amedeo d’Aosta are really quite safe and, in my opinion, surely a good place to grow children up. I grew up on those streets as well, so welcome David, don’t worry about what the press says.
