At around 7:50 today, a bomb – consisting of three gas cylinders and placed on a wall behind a billboard – exploded on front of a school in Brindisi, Puglia.
The students, assembrate there, waiting for the bell of entry have been invested by the explosion and the “fireball” that propane generates. The bomber was in sight and “chose” his victims.
An attack on women, since the school is one of few entitled to a woman and students are mostly girls.

A student, Melissa Holland, aged 16, died shortly after in the hospital Terrino of Brindisi. Another, Veronica Capodieci is between life and death, mangled by the explosion.
Of the others injured, many are in shock and two had only minor injuries, but the other four have suffered burns to 40% of the body and two have serious leg injuries.
The attack is linked to local narcos, Sacra Corona Unita, by the fire-raising technique, similar to other recent events that took place in Brindisi County, in Mesagne in particular, the same town form where the teenagers came, as the explosion and burning of cars of the anti-racketeering association president, Fabio Marini, and entrepreneur, Luigi Devicienti.
Worth adding that in Brindisi has just been elected as Mayor journalist Consales Mimmo, supported by the leftcenter parties and the centrist UDC, who headed the drafting of Telenorba TV and was correspondent in Brindisi for news agency Ansa.
His statements, about the attack mob, are so “well informed on facts”. The location of the institution near the Court of Brindisi, his dedication to Giovanni Falcone’ wife, Franca Morvillo, a judge died 20 years ago under a mafia bombing, the arrival in town of the Caravan Antimafia in the twentieth anniversary of those massacres suggest the worst.
As a crude bomb – of the same kind used in other attacks on U.S. colleges, which “instructions” are easily found online – leaves open the possibility, at moment, of an heinous act, at least until the investigators will not have a clear track to follow.

A “quantum leap” that would see, according to the statements of politicians Brindisi, the clan of Mesagne as the author of the attack, that might be just the first act of a “narco-insurgency” – certainly less than Mexican – but in analogy with the mass murdering strategy done by Toto Riina, twenty years ago.
A concern which is reflected by the statements of everyone – experts, politicians, prosecutors – that the Mafia might be “on the ropes”, not having too much to lose.
Certainly, in fact, Crisis has also affected those who had to speculate and especially who needs to “wash” money. Moreover, after the rules on tracking bank and those in progress against corruption, for the new fiscal rules, control of party funding.
A bad situation even more accentuated by the inconsistency of the parties and the difficulty to foresee “interlocutors” future, the strong position of the Pope Benedict XVI against mafias and corruption, claimed during the Vespers, and the high likelihood that Europe gradually goes to legalize and to tax drugs.

Italy needs an acceleration in reaffirming the existence and the presence of the state – and the sense of belonging and social acceptance – which does not become less urgent if the cowardly attack was “an anomaly”, as the Minister of inner affairs says, ie if it had been implemented by some scoundrels.
A ‘difficulty’ that this Italian government has – as usual - to provide governance reforms (provinces erasing, new election law, sale of federal government properties, limits and controls on party funding, transfer of resources and utilities from State to Regions).
As Italy has to run on this way, the European Union has not to stay.
The time of financial speculations – during two decades following the fall of the Soviet Union and Iraq Wars – is over. The Mexican Narco War is an obvious consequence, as the massacre of Utoya.
The demands of the younger generations are probably the solution, if they request a change in education and politics – addressed to the politicians who “will change the world” as Beat Generation - as they request to tax the stock market and the drugs dealing.
