Dangerous Napoli

Mr. De Magistris, new elected mayor of Napoli town, is facing a difficult challenge. To be up to his task he needs to create confidence and gain respect, also from opponents and sceptical people (quite numerous in Napoli).

Declaring that in Brussels (as he stayed as European Parliament member) he felt less safe than in Napoli is probably not an intelligent move and risk to be perceived from local audience as a revival of an ancient comedy figure, introduced by the famous comedian Toto’: that one of the ‘guappo di cartone’ (= carton-board thug).
