Rave Torino, 6,000 amassed. The prefect: “Dangerous an eviction”
A new rave party in Italy it got out of control. This time the maxi clandestine meeting took place on the outskirts of Turin, a stone’s throw from the hunting palace of Stupinigi, the summer residence of the Savoy and Unesco heritage. The party started in an abandoned area with warehouses. Six thousand – we read in Repubblica – are the boys who have come from many cities and from Northern Europe, especially France, to hear them. At the rave party, organized for the 15 years of a local sound system, the fathers of techno could have been even double, if in the darkness between Saturday and Sunday the carabinieri and police had not intervened: to end the procession of cars, campers , trucks, all people who had signed the clandestine appointment thanks to a Telegram chat. “There were people electrocuted”, says Manuele, 37, who lives in Borgaretto, the small neighboring town.
The anti Covid measures – continues Repubblica – are non-existent, not to mention the most basic safety rules. That only four people, last night, had ended up in the hospital for fractures and head trauma is a great luxury: “When we entered, at dawn, we found four quite serious situations”, the rescuers admit. Just outside, already at night, a Red Cross assistance point is set up. All around, however, police and carabinieri block the streets, including Viale Torino, which runs from the center to the hunting lodge of Stupinigi, which belonged to the Savoy family. There are four major roadblocks: “Anyone who leaves is identified and does not return,” explained prefect Claudio Palomba in the evening, who must settle in Naples in three days. In the morning he had called an emergency meeting with the representatives of the police and institutions: an immediate eviction of the area was impossible. Too dangerous for public order, given the mass of people involved, their conditions and the vastness of the area.
