The city of Bra will reopen the three urban cemeteries on Monday 11 May 2020. Until then the bell towers will be accessible only for funeral ceremonies with a participation of up to a maximum of 15 people, without prejudice to the obligation to rigorously respect the interpersonal safety distance of at least one meter and to wear respiratory safety devices (masks).

From 4 May 2020, the so-called "Phase 2" in the fight against the pandemic from Covid 19 begins. The Dpcm of 26 April introduces some limited derogations from the restrictions in force in the last few weeks.

The Municipality of Bra has been informed by Tecnoedil spa, manager of the integrated water service, which from Monday 4 May 2020 will resume the reading of the water meters positioned outside the private properties. On the other hand, the reading of the devices placed inside is temporarily suspended, given the need to guarantee the safety of employees and users. In these cases users will be contacted by the company to communicate consumption data, an operation that can be carried out by sending an email to, or by calling 0173-224201.

Starting from Monday 4 May 2020, Bra will also be granted to commercial activities - bars, pubs, restaurants, ice cream parlors, patisseries - which have given prior notice to the Municipality to prepare food for takeaway. This is the so-called "take away".

The Youth Policy Day in Bra entitled "I Care", organized by the Municipality in collaboration with the "Lunetica" Cooperative, is back again this year, albeit in a truly unedited version. It is an appointment aimed at city high school students, born as a moment of meeting, reflection and exchange to deepen current issues and, at the same time, to cultivate a space to build critical sense, civil and political education. Given the impossibility of gathering many young people in one physical location, the organizers had to completely rethink this second edition of the appointment, deciding to use alternative communication tools to share with the young people the interventions of the speakers who had been invited to take part in the event originally scheduled for April 3 at the Politeama Theater.

In particular, each speaker will make a short video that will introduce the theme that will be subsequently addressed during a live radio. These "I Care pills" will be posted on the Facebook page "Youth Policies - Bra", on the Monday preceding the radio appointment.

So, for three Thursdays in May (7, 14 and 21 May 2020 from 18 pm) it will be broadcast on the BraontheRocks WebRadio ā€œI Care. On air ā€, live meetings with the speakers who will be asked some guiding questions useful to face the topic for which they have been invited. Finally, the radio appointments will be recorded to allow the editing of a final video of the project, so as to be able to represent a material easy to consult for those who need it.

The 2020 edition of the event will focus on three themes: "Music and participation", "Environment and future", "Information sources in the digital age".

It starts with a focus dedicated to music and its ability to involve the younger generations. In particular, one wonders whether the musical language can become, especially for the youngest, an instrument of participation. Speaker Pierfrancesco Pacoda (7 May), music critic, essayist, writes about youth lifestyles and cultures on the Manifesto, Espresso and numerous other Italian newspapers. He has written, among other books, "Italian Hip Hop" (Einaudi) an anthology of Italian rap.

The focus on "Environment and future" will retrace the path of reflection opened by Greta Thunberg on the need to act quickly to stop the climate changes that are upsetting our planet. At stake is our future. Marco Merola (14 May), journalist and scientific popularizer, will work on the topic for Geo, National Geographic, Focus and BBC Science. He is the communication manager of many international scientific projects of the Prime Minister's Committee on Biosafety, Biotechnology and Life Sciences.

The last topic at the center of attention has assumed an even more significant weight in this period of emergency: the technological evolution that we are experiencing in recent years has led to an increasingly high use of news, being able to count on tools within reach of but no. How can we defend ourselves from the numerous "fake news" on the net? How to recognize the most reliable sources of information? To talk about it will be Alessandro De Pascale (21 May), investigative journalist, one of the collaborators of "Il Sabato" per Repubblica. Among his books, "Telecamorra, war between clans for the control of the ether" (Lantana 2012) and "War & drugs" (Castelvecchi 2017). (Rb)
