The 32-year-old girl sent a letter to a national daily newspaper to talk about her relationship with a migrant which did not go down well with her mother: “Working among migrants … I fell in love with Jeff. When I talked to my mother about it, a person of the Left, I was disappointed with her reactions. She said I was a sick person, that the blacks deserved only pity, that she should have me arrested, that he was with me only for money.”
These words provoked reactions from some politicians, such as Cristiano Romani, from the Movimento Sovranista who targeted the Socialist mayor: “Words that shatter the veil of hypocrisy of the left and the Socialist Party which applies to the letter the philisophy of welcoming all migrants but far from their homes and, above all, with no contacts or relationships with the people they care about.”
Her mother is Margherita Scarpellini, Socialist mayor of Monte San Savino.
