Di Donna, Bertolaso admits the “push” for Buini. “Write to Arcuri”
Donna’s case becomes more and more intricate. The investigation involving the former partner of Giuseppe Conte, accused of trafficking in influences after the denunciation of the entrepreneur Buini, is enriched with new background. The former head of the Civil Protection Guido Bertolaso, admits to knowing the entrepreneur Buini and to having given him the email of the former commissioner Arcuri. “One day – Bertolaso explains to Repubblica – this guy I met at a golf match calls me and says to me:” Look, I can supply compliant, perfect, certified masks, but I don’t know Arcuri “. So I tell him: “Well, this is his institutional email, write him, explain everything and then he will evaluate, decide if it is useful. But I haven’t recommended anyone! I just suggested sending an email to Arcuri, to whom I then wrote a text message: “This guy will call you and maybe he can help you with the masks”. Bertolaso also reveals another background relating to the former commissioner.
“Arcuri – Bertolaso continues to Repubblica – I met him at Palazzo Chigi in 2007, when a senior official of the Prime Minister, the Prodi government, summons me and introduces me to two people: Arcuri, then former head of Invitalia, and Giampi Tarantini (the famous hunter of girls for Berlusconi’s parties, ed.) On that occasion they tell me that they wanted to build a large civil protection center in Puglia: “Arcuri puts the money and Tarantini realizes it.” I was thrilled, I said no and me I went away. I was very annoyed by this little ambush. e. When, years later, it turned out that it was Berlusconi who introduced me to Tarantini, I also made an Ansa note to re-establish the truth, that is, it was Arcuri who introduced him to me “.
