“Have they still postponed the reopening of the discos? The Government should clarify: have they decided to postpone the reopening or not to reopen them at all? I wait until Sunday and then I do like the others and I turn into a ‘dancing’ restaurant ”. to Adnkronos Luciano Guidi, the owner of ‘Phi Beach’, a well-known local on the Costa Smeralda. For Guidi the situation ” has now become grotesque ”, in particular the hypothesis of refreshments: ” They must understand that we are Italian companies – He underlines – I pay salaries and contributions and I don’t intend to take any refreshments and then give it back, perhaps for some stupid fine. Let us work – Guidi asks – do we want to sell our companies to foreign multinationals? . ” I wandering around the Costa Smeralda – he tells me – I realized that by now anyone who has a bar or a bathing establishment has practically transformed it into a disco. Now there are restaurants and even bars. ‘dancing’ arkeys. Any restaurant has a DJ, people go there to eat, pile up and then hang around at the tables. Once hundreds of DJs called me, now they have become rare commodities because they found work elsewhere ”. The owner of Phi Beach sends a message to the Government: “If open-air discos open throughout Europe, why shouldn’t they open in Italy? This leads all the under 30 and under 40 to go abroad. Now they are all going to Saint-Tropez because the decree that allows discos to be reopened has passed, they will also open in England while in France and Greece they are already open. “My place is completely outdoors – he explains – I have four restaurants that work, our place is all outdoors. Why not reopen at least the outdoor discos? It would be enough to limit the capacity and check that the distances are respected. We give the masks to everyone at the entrance, we swab everyone, if there is a crowd I have already prepared a plan that includes sirens and LED walls that write that everyone must wear a mask. you of all, why can’t they reopen? -Continues Guidi- I already have 100 employees hired and working, I am vaccinating the 41 employees who have not yet been able to vaccinate and I have made an artistic program for 1 million euros. In the disco part people can sit at the table and have a drink but they can’t dance, why should they come to me if they can dance elsewhere? The salaries I pay are higher than what I have collected – he adds – you can’t go on like this otherwise I’d better close and go on vacation ”, concludes the owner of Phi Beach. (by Alisa Toaff)
