Beppe Sala, who admits to making errors in his early response to the crisis, explains why he is seeking sustainable solutions
Milan’s mayor, Beppe Sala, admits he made mistakes. In late February 2019, a week after the first locally transmitted coronavirus case was confirmed in Italy, he shared a promotional video on his Facebook page with the slogan “Milan does not stop”.
The clip contained images of people hugging, eating in restaurants, walking in parks and waiting at train stations. It was not Sala’s finest hour.
