Sophia Loren Begs Residents to Help Clean Up Naples

Um, note to self: when traveling abroad, skip Naples. Did anyone else know that in Naples garbage collectors have stopped picking up the trash because dumps are full and residents have protested against new ones? That’s like a huge problem, and I’m not the only one who thinks so!

Sophia Loren is literally begging the residents of Naples to clear the garbage off the famous streets she once inhabited. Loren said in the Italian daily La Repubblica on Friday “I beg you, with my hands clasped in prayer, to multiply efforts to remedy to this tragedy.”  She added, “I look at this tragedy with deep anguish in my heart.”

Sophia hopes that Neapolitans will “cooperate” and “make an effort.”  Apparently it’s gotten so bad that people are burning garbage, knocking over trash cans and dumping rubbish in the countryside. The government has passed a series of measures, but things don’t seem to be getting any better. 

This whole thing brings up an interesting point. What happens when our landfills have no more room? Being a New York City resident, I get pissed when the trash cans become too filled and the garbage spills on the sidewalk — I couldn’t imagine the trash just no longer being picked up. Yowzers! Anybody out there got a good plan for Naples?
