In the meantime, the president of the Veneto Region spoke about the abuses suffered by girls on the Verona-Milan train, Luca Zaia, who stated: “Thinking that girls are harassed, harassed or subjected to aggression in our territories does not exist. My appeal is that there is zero tolerance and that the police put their utmost effort into finding those responsible. We Venetians are used to a social relationship based on respect for people and rules. It must not pass the idea that facts like these can become ordinary or even, worse still, that one can get used to them. We have never even adapted to putting alarms in the house and thinking about locking ourselves in. I repeat, zero tolerance“.
On 2 June, in addition to the episode of sexual harassment on the Gardaland train, between the towns of Peschiera del Garda and Castelnuovo del Garda a big fight took place. Over 2,500 young people from all over Northern Italy, especially from Lombardy and Veneto, went to the area to take part in a sponsored event on TikTok.
In this context, tourists have been put on the run by the arrival of teenagers who have invaded the lakeside beaches playing loud music and stealing.
