Where he took the advertising card Luigi Di Maio? When the relationship between the deputy prime minister and the journalist category is at the height of tension, demand explodes vigorously. Some members of the Democratic Party, such as Ettore Rosato and Emanuele Fiano, have already pointed the finger at the barbecue and some directors and collaborators of what appeared to be the newspapers for which Di Maio would have taken the card to deny.
Like Gabriella Bellini, director responsible for the website laprovinciaonline.info, with which the pentastellato leader collaborated until the parliamentary election in 2013. "The Luigi I know would never have uttered these words, he knows of the sacrifices they make from local newspaper reporters , so his sentences surprised me, they are words that hurt me, they made me feel bad, today he is Minister of Labor who must know what freedom of the press is in difficult territory like ours, "says Bellini. He then explains: "Di May worked as a webmaster, he is not with us, he took the publicity card, he came here as a technician, we were in the dawn of online journalism." Searching the archives of the bell's head there are four articles written by the young Di Maio. One concerns the shelter model of the Libyan refugees in Pomigliano d'Arco, another is entitled "San Felice on the shoulders of refugees," another speaks of a documentary on Alfa Romeo and the latest attack of a hacker on the site of the municipality of Pomigliano.
Among the eligible candidates for the card was Paese Futuro, a newspaper printed and distributed free of charge in Pomigliano d'Arco, which also had a website. Of the latter, there are no more traces, not even the search in the archives of the web. The then editor of the publication, Francesco Di Rienzo, Giornalettismo: "We had several collaborators in those years, but Luigi Di Maio was not among them, he was not part of our editorial team". Even Anna Paola Bove, in the newspaper from 2004 to 2013, denied: "Unless he has a real amnesia, I do not remember Di May here, he did not take his card with us, nor wrote an article."
But who gave Di May the opportunity on October 4, 2007 to register with the journalists of Campania as publicist? Remember that the requirements to become a must have written at least 70 articles paid for an ongoing period of at least two years with one or more newspapers regularly registered in court.
But what are these titles?
"In September 2012 the documentary" Commerce "premiered at the movies, which I had filmed with a dear friend to denounce the dramatic situation of the small merchants in my city: dozens of failed activities and In those years, in addition to being a videomaker, I also wrote about local events as a publicist. " Beside the application is the blog http://pomigliano.org/, which has now become a Chinese site. In this blog was published the documentary mentioned above, but a blog as such is difficult to be a registered magazine.
If the date the application was filed in 2007 means that Di Maio started writing about local news at least in 2005, that is, at age 19. It was the university period in which he founded and directed the website www.studigiurisprudenza.it, which was nothing more than a university information bulletin (among other things, it does not coincide with the time between registration and articles as the magazine was born in November 2006). ) in which among other things he was shown a former liberal writing articles in which he criticized nationalization, he wanted to sell Alitalia to the French, stigmatized the fixed position and boasted of being able to acquire public funding for the magazine by the University Federico II of Naples.
In the end, the doubt seems to have been dispelled. In fact, according to what Corriere della Sera reports, giving the opportunity to take the card to Di Maio would be puntonline.it, tested with headquarters in Giugliano, registered at the Court of Naples on July 14, 2001.
According to the director, Mauro Fellico, the young Di Maio attached sporting articles related to amateur football. The order of the journalists, however, does not keep the files presented by aspiring journalists and, on the Internet, there are no traces of the pieces of the grid. That you do not understand why in your resume you only talk about local news articles and do not mention the minimanente neither the sport nor the puntonline to which he should be somewhat grateful.
