The cunning and hypocrisy in Italy
Date: October 4, 2008
Location: Torino - Stadio Delle Alpi
Event: Concert of Vasco Rossi
Ticket price: 43 Euros (lawn)
We arrive at the stadium, all loads in this "away" that sees us as spectators of an event which many want to participate ... so many, too many, but maybe it's not even entirely true ...
We had an extra ticket, "advanced" for an accident unfortunately at the last moment to a component of this trip planned ... but not everything can be programmed.
We wander outside the stadium trying to "place" the ticket, but we note that there are many in our situation, with job losses of tickets ... in the end we opt to exchange it with a shirt and a bandana Vasco (dubious decision).
After the ordeal of the "extra ticket" we go to the entrance of the area where our tickets corresponded to put more or less diligently queued.
When walking we have noticed the impossible: assaults real fences of the stadium, skilled jumpers, climbers and improvised barbed-wire-dodges, all under the watchful eye and casual police, carabinieri police ... short.
Not a word, nor by officers inside the stadium or those just outside that aimed almost enjoy the fact.
And US? queuing ... forty minutes of tail (having more friends already in the queue during our mission aforementioned). It almost seemed that we were outlaws US ... unbelievable.
And once inside care of two plastic plugs ... incredible, that hypocrisy!
Obviously, the control is the same that could make a blind 1km away and with ears plugged. A shame really.
Finally we come ... I turn and see the guys who fight with a security guard (will be weighed 45 pounds wet ed).
I hear: "You're a bastard, does not cost you a shit!".
At first sight I think: "Here they are .. the usual ignorant deliquentelli making the tough".
But I am curious, I have nothing to do, and look a minute. What known?
The boys after entering diligently doing his tail, had arrived from quest'addetto cortesamente asking him if he could open the emergency door for passing their friend (the other side of the barrier of plexiglass) disabled, wheelchair users, He supported in the arms of his two friends.
L 'upright officer ... the strict stadium security Be watchful!
You can not come in, must be the line like everyone else, in the middle of the crowd, suffering definitely pushed more or less voluntary people that surrounds it and that already at 8 is rightly (more or less) drunk!
I wish these cue (the employee) will have to have the opportunity to read me and to steal all my contempt for his failure to interpret situations and his ability to be a frustrated idiot who thinks he has the power in something and that finally realizes that he had not even power on their ability to reason.
Apart from these little things the concert went well, no mess and the "usual" big Vasco!
Simply never change us Italians ... crafty, hypocritical and ignorant (Latin if someone did not know the etymology of the word).
Greetings to all critical!
