Favorite old permanent job. These days, starvation and insecurity have brought a generation to its knees, which is a mirage for many.
So these days more than 10 thousand people from Italy arrive in Fortessa da Basso, where there are competitions to enter the municipality and the metropolitan city. Total 75 seats.
The first tests with two sessions per day have already taken place.
“I’m 29 years old and have a master’s degree in art history. My future is decided by thirty questions. I am waiting for my exam this morning on a bench near the tram stop.
“We have already tried many competitions. In Rome, Carpi, Milan. In some we entered the rankings, but in others we continue to participate,” he said, echoing 33-year-old neopolitans Veronica and Francesco, who graduated with a degree in medical biotechnology and economics.
Scattered in the square in front of the castle, many people bite the nerve of a sandwich and do not answer: “Sorry, I’ll use you to review these last moments”.
“I’m not telling you the name, because they do not know where I work. I’m already working in a public city, but I’m trying to jump from frame B to C,” says a 50 – year – old woman with sunglasses and a keen eye on a notebook.
“And – he adds – they have already hired me for high level activities, for which I need to earn more. If I succeed, I will gladly go to Florence.”
Many, standing in line as early as 1 p.m., wait for the ‘call’ at 2 p.m. An army of young and old, women and men, talking about job hunger. A 45-year-old boy from Basilicata stands out. He also likes not to be named.
“Because I’ve been working for a multinational company in Ireland for years. I should have had a vacation, but I missed Italy so much, that’s why I went back to the competition. In Rome we were 90,000,” says the IT accountant-turned-graduate.
This is one of the quietest. He has no notes, books or notebooks in his hand. “Well, after all, I have a job. I’m sorry – he sighs – many still have to flee abroad.” Then tomorrow will be another day, another match.
