“By extending the list of vaccinated people, thanks to the obligation for the over 50s, the potential audience of spectators is also widening, increasing the number of people who, having been vaccinated, can come to see a show in the hall. And this, as well as a ‘ excellent news for public health, it is also good news for the world of theater “. This is what the president of the ATP, an association that brings together over fifty Italian private theaters, Massimo Romeo Piparo, artistic director of the Sistina in Rome, observes at AdnKronos. “Indeed – adds Piparo – the measure in our opinion should have been further extended, with a vaccine obligation if not for everyone at least for the over 30s or at least for the over 40s … Thus, the measure still appears too mild. And then, the penalty of 100 euros for those who fail to comply with the obligation is frankly ridiculous, I would say almost offensive, as well as being at the most uneducational: a nice and good mockery “. In any case, Piparo continues,” this obligation is welcome in the meantime for the over 50: it is a measure that we have always hoped for and therefore support, even if we expected more courage from the Government and above all from Prime Minister Draghi, both on the age of the subjects involved and on the sanctions for the disobedient. Now, the Government must be the one to support us because the halls, with few exceptions, are increasingly empty with a collapse of more than two thirds of their capacity: there is a risk of a massacre in terms of economy and employment “.
