TURIN. General Francesco Figliuolo was greeted with a chorus of protests on a visit to the Lavazza vaccination hub, where vaccinations are underway for the 12-15 age group. “Hands off our children,” shouted a group of No Vax and No Green Pass. They unrolled a banner, raised signs and declaimed the Constitution. “Personal freedom is inviolable.” There were also moments of tension with the managers of a bar, because the demonstrators had invaded the terrace. “Get out of here, we have to work,” the bartender said, attracting protests from anti-Son activists. “I’ve made a lot of sacrifices for this bar, people should have more respect for those who work,” says the bartender.
