“I am proud to have distanced myself from Zaia’s “team”. I am glad that I did not make a team anymore, because they made a mistake. I exercised my right to scientific criticism and the Veneto region went out his roof with a series of acts of intimidation”. Professor Andrea Crisanti stated this in an interview with Sky TG24, about the new clash between him and the Governor Luca Zaia over the massive use of rapid smears during the second Covid wave. In recent days, Crisanti has resigned from the University of Padua, where he held the position of Professor of Microbiology. The decision, as Crisanti himself explained, is related to the investigation into the rapid smears of the Padova prosecutor’s office and to the distribution of some telephone intercepts in which Zaia allegedly said about him: “I will crash it”.
