NIn the opposition that with the center-left shirt snaps and sends Paolo Crivelli to flight in the race for the town hall, the Movimento Cinque Stelle in surplace stands out instead.
At the moment no gear changes but pedaling in silence still in a group. Little desire to be a wingman for another captain? So, an autonomous candidacy? It will only be understood in the next few days.
“To date there is still nothing decided », states the lawyer Alberto Pasta. Past remote with the Center-right, another more recent as deputy mayor and councilor in two administrations of the Center-left, for years he has been sitting on the Asti flagship of the Movement.
Lawyer, you are a bit of the talking cricket of politics …
“I do not like. Not such a positive definition
Do you like critical consciousness?
“Here, yes. That’s better”
Look, define yourself.
“A free citizen who polyrics every day in the actions he carries out, even in the judicial field”
Outside the institutions. Do you want to stay at the window again?
“I resigned in 2013, as councilor and since then I have continued to do politics in a different form. As a simple citizen, in fact. As everyone should do
She is close to the Five Stars, Indeed, something more.
«I have legally assisted them several times in their initiatives and I share their values and principles.
They consider her to be their prompter.
“From an administrative point of view, I am a consultant, I offer my political experience”
Let’s get down to business. Do you agree with Paolo Crivelli’s candidacy?
“A very good person. But the important thing is another: a wide array is moving to propose an alternative to this administration. A good sign.
Is he the right candidate?
“Many names have been mentioned, all worthy. The beauty of this line-up is a plurality of people with skills who can provide a plurality of answers. All things that did not arrive from the center ”
“There is a chorus like I have rarely seen in the past. Ideally there is a very broad front, not only among those who have opposed the Council. And it is an objective fact, the M5S is at the center of this alternative “.
But will he be part of the coalition or not?
«In my opinion it is secondary. It is necessary to understand well which is the best modality in view of the vote. It can work well both within a unitary front or by constituting an autonomous pole leading in the same direction ”
And why not immediately?
«It is necessary to understand if a bloc opposed to another bloc can make a progressive alignment prevail in the end. The M5S is the pivot and is simply reflecting on what is best to do. For the good of the city ».
Well, there are also other parties, civic lists.
«The important thing is to have common plans on how to manage the city. All things that are there ».
Is there already a program?
“The hat to all progressive forces must be Asti 2030. Identifying not only today’s solutions, something that has not been seen in the council in these five years”

Five Stars plus Beyond.
“All evaluations to be done”
Maybe with Massimo Cerruti again candidate for mayor?
“He is a thoroughbred horse. And in any democracy you go to get the leader of the opposition. But let’s be clear, this does not mean that Crivelli is not doing well “”
And the rest of the reformist area? Italia Viva, for example.
“It is not known who and what they are. Renzi? Or Calenda? What is their project? Angela Motta is a very dear friend, but she won’t be there. Who then?
IMeanwhile Rasero does not formalize. How do you explain it?
«Ah, you have to ask him. I’m just saying that what has been done and what hasn’t been done is there for all to see ”
Define the mayor with an adjective.
“I would use an English term: unfit”.
“Inappropriate. I thought so already five years ago: total lack of a sense of the role of institutions ”
«Politics attentive to offices in institutions, less to problems, a Culture contracted to the Foundation. And then a polluted, insecure city ”
And the resignation of Bovino as councilor?
“Cattle who? The councilor for equality of son-in-law? ”
Bad joke, lawyer.
“The exit is a sign of weakness for a junta. He justified it for personal reasons. I believe they are political “,
What are the requirements for an ideal mayor?
“A capable team, not a single man in charge. And listening skills
