«A choice without a reasoned and well-founded basis, given that in the resolution there is no explanation or motivation other than the usual cliché that says nothing, i.e. “the Administration deemed it appropriate to modify”».

«The Badia Vecchia is a monumental asset of great importance, restricted by the State, whose alienation cannot occur with a flip of paper and without an in-depth debate – the minority councilor points out – in my opinion, regardless of any reasoning, it should not be touched, rather its recovery for public cultural use must be attempted, decided from the Taormina community”.
