For the first time Serrara Fontana has a female mayor. With 60.71% of preferences, Irene Iacono was elected mayor of the smallest town on the island of Ischia, 3 thousand inhabitants in an area that goes from the top of Mount Epomeo to Borgo Sant’Angelo, one of the most evocative places in the green island and favorite holiday destination of former German Chancellor Angela Merkel. “I think this is a revolutionary vote,” Irene Iacono told Adnkronos. “Except for a parenthesis of a female mayor acting – he explains – Serrara Fontana has always been administered by men and not much credit was given to the idea of a municipal administration led by a woman. It was tough both from a cultural point of view that from a political point of view, but in the end the people chose for the younger part, which could give a hope of tangible change “. From a woman who has just been elected mayor, an invitation to the woman who for years has been the most influential politician in Europe, Angela Merkel, the most famous tourist of Sant’Angelo and Serrara Fontana: “Already in one of my speeches I addressed her an invitation to come back and visit us as soon as possible – says Iacono – I know that in the past she has always relaxed in this wonderful village, where she has found her spaces, her intimacy and above all she has always been protected and protected by the locals. she can really enjoy her well-deserved rest after her much appreciated work, we really hope that the conditions of the pandemic will allow us to find her again here next spring during Easter, it would be an honor “.
