The stop came for ten "furbetti" gardeners from the Municipality of Rome. "They stamped the card and instead worked" collecting their salaries, tending green private gardens, "mayor Virginia Raggi announced earlier in the morning that the hard fist decided by the Capitoline government was against" apples bad".
