Federico Pastorello, said in the interview, “I have always accepted – and will continue to do so – confrontation and constructive criticism. They are part of the game for those who play a role with considerable media relevance.”
“What we absolutely cannot tolerate are the falsehoods, insinuations, insults, and threats we have received [also against my family and my daughters], which have far exceeded the limits of civilization, decency, and tolerance.”
“Believe it or not, the supporters’ affection and the special bond with the city of Milan made him think about it for a long time: but then, once he made his decision, he carried on with conviction and firmness. The economic aspect is a detail, but it is not the main factor that determines our choices and those of our clients.”
