During a live broadcast on social media, Antonio Decaro, the mayor of Bari, addressed the issue of receiving both fair and unfair attacks from various quarters. Specifically, he mentioned parliamentarians of a national character from the center-right who have been critical of him. He noted that despite dealing with these attacks on a regular basis, he found it troubling to see his photo published in national newspapers alongside two women related to Antonio Capriati, labeled with the term ‘mafia’.

Decaro explained that after making some inquiries, he discovered that the two women were indeed relatives of Capriati but were not involved in any illicit activities. This situation led him to reflect on the challenges faced by innocent individuals who are unfairly linked to criminal associations. He also emphasized that the municipality has always strived to operate in compliance with the law and fully cooperated with the Anti-Mafia Access Commission during their inspection.

The mayor also recounted a controversial episode involving Michele Emiliano, president of Puglia Region, which was misrepresented by Emiliano during an event. Decaro clarified the incident by highlighting his past as a young engineer working on mobility issues in old city Bari where he faced resistance from local residents and businesses. He recalled a moment when Emiliano intervened on his behalf to support his efforts in improving neighborhood.

In conclusion, Decaro stressed the importance of accurately portraying past events and individuals to avoid misconceptions. He highlighted the collaborative approach taken by the municipality to address challenges and promote community welfare. Despite facing unwarranted criticisms and negative associations, Decaro remained steadfast in his commitment to upholding law and serving people of Bari best way possible.
