The park named after the president of Lazio who won his first championship in 1974 was inaugurated on Wednesday, during the night the damage
Not even a day. The park named after Umberto Lenzini, president of Lazio who won his first championship in 1974, was inaugurated on Wednesday afternoon at 4 pm in the presence of the mayor of Rome Roberto Gualtieri and the councilor for tourism, major events and sport Alessandro Onorato. The green area, formerly called “La Collinetta”, is in the Boccea area (XIII Town Hall) where in the 60s and 70s Lenzini, as a building contractor, contributed to the urban development of the city.
Already on Thursday morning, however, the sign bearing his name was smeared on both sides and colored yellow and red by some Roma fans. The same fate for a part of the fountain located at the entrance to the park. There have also been some skirmishes (only verbal) between Roma fans, amused by the incident, and those of Lazio, who are annoyed instead. Some children, who play sports in the park with their school, rejoice at the sight of the yellow and red colors, demonstrating that gestures of this kind, as well as being disrespectful to the memory of the deceased (and of the family, which for years fought for a road), they are also harmful for the little ones. Councilor Onorato immediately let it be known that he had alerted the AMA, which was already on site at 10.20 to clean up the sign, on which a sticker had also been attached showing a child urinating, accompanied by the writing “il my dream since I was a child”. Upon the arrival of the Ama, a Roma fan railed against the operators. “Had we called an ambulance, it wouldn’t have arrived so soon, but to defend Lazio, intervene immediately”. Proof that sport, in Rome, divides rather than unites.
