Just to clear a couple of things up from the article on page 18 of the Piccolo today.
1) No. The ceiling did not fall down. Some water entered the the building in the far hallway (nowhere near our classrooms or library) during the big rains a couple of weeks ago, and some paint fell from the ceiling. The Amministratore has been working to clean up and fix the problem. There were people working on the roof last Friday.
THERE ARE NO SECURITY ISSUES FOR GUESTS OR STUDENTS OF THE ASSOCIATION.
2) Yes. It is true that we are currently ironing out details for a new contract with our landlords so we can stay where we are in Via Roma, 15.
3). No. The proposed increase was not 30%. It was much lower.
4) Yes. We are confident that through transparency and good faith negotiating we will be able to keep our place in Via Roma. But, no matter what, the Association will live on. We have lots of things to do together this year and for years to come.
Thank you for your support, as always, and remember to ask us directly if you have any questions about what gets printed.
We'll tell you what's going on!
OH YES, AND DON'T FORGET TO RENEW YOUR TESSERA!!
