Maybe it's because of living abroad, or by spending most of the year, unless you fall into the trap of partisanship at all costs.
Maybe it's because in Malindi and Watamu Italians feel all the same and if they fight, they do it for other things and certainly not for Renzi and Grillo.
Anyway, the nice photo of the Masai who work at the mall Oasis Mall (one of the Nakumatt) for organizers of "Kenya 'yes', one of the 70 committees formed by Italian citizens ahead of the referendum (40 yes and 30 for no, according to data collected by the Republic) has not only become a symbol of how our compatriots abroad are linked by an umbilical cord with the beautiful country, which leads them also to participate in public affairs, but also of ' irony that dilutes the exasperated climate of political battle, vulgar contrasts, outrage at all costs and meanness from either side.
And 'Pietro Mastella, marketing manager of the Jacaranda Resort, explaining the genesis of that photo that made the tour of Italy, including print media, internet sites, radio and television, bringing Kenya in Italian homes finally not unpleasant episodes but just for curiosity sprang from a photo riotous.
"After legally installed a" roll up banner "paid in the mall and have known that someone in a less civilized, had overturned - reveals Mastella - the promoter of the committee Pasquale Tiritò went to check and there he found the Masai . the link between the Italian character transmitted by the banner and Kenya embodied by the best-known tribe, the suggested a nice photography and sdrammatizzante to put on social networks. "
Imagine if Tiritò, entrepreneur who for 30 years worked with Kenya and lives for several months a year in Watamu, he expected that shot to become "viral" as they say today. "In a few hours, that picture has become one of the tweeting and shared network - explains the Roman businessman from Italy - I have released many interviews and what is important is that I could speak in positive terms of Malindi and Watamu, as not happening "for some time.
Apart from the clear message that on the coast of Kenya, there is a group of people who will vote yes to the next constitutional referendum is passed fact that subliminal but no less strong that the African country is still home to many compatriots, including tourists and residents, and is a place safe and welcoming.
"And that we are united and we can often see things in a more serene and relaxed perspective, far dall'acrimonia and the controversy at any cost - adds another creator of" Kenyaperilsì "Roberto Lenzi, well-known businessman and hotelier of Watamu - among other things and I Tiritò we are politically deployed on two different fronts, but the vision of an Italy that can improve remodeling intelligently the constitution, has united us. So how unites us the desire to revive tourism also Italian in Kenya. " The two businessmen are ready to an African way comparison (chilled and relaxed, in fact) with the supporters of the "no", while the instigators of climates far from those of the equator, the "indignados", the apocalyptic and the iperpolemici, they say in chorus: "boys, come and make a nice holiday in Watamu, and you will see things in a different light, and you'll do well there you a nice picture with the Maasai".
