Decaro and the two women in the photo: “family bosses who are strangers to the rest”

During a live broadcast on social media, Bari mayor Antonio Decaro addressed the issue of receiving both fair and unfair attacks from various quarters, specifically mentioning parliamentarians of a national character from the center-right. 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 boss Antonio Capriati, labeled with the term ‘mafia’.

In an effort to clear up any misunderstandings, 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.

Decaro also recounted a controversial episode involving the president of the Puglia Region, Michele Emiliano, 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 the old city of 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 the 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 the law and serving the people of Bari to the best of his abilities.
