Suspicious package sent to Lavazza HQ in Italy

Reading Time: 1 minute

There has been another incident of a suspect package delivered in the post in Turin. This time the suspicious package was sent to the new head quarters of coffee maker Lavazza at the Nuvola building in Turin.

According to emergency services some members of staff complained of respiratory problems.

The Nuvola recently hosted meetings by ‘Biennale Democrazia’, a Turin pro-democracy group that aims to encourage political participation among students.

The group has faced protests from Turin’s anti-capitalist and anarchist circles, which are suspected in an explosive device sent to the city mayor and bullets sent to the prefect.

The group is also housed in the same district where a nursery school housing a transnational anarchist squat was evicted earlier this year causing protests.

Earlier Friday a suspect package, apparently similar to an explosive package sent to Turin Mayor Chiara Appendino this week, was delivered to a League member in the northern city on Friday, sources said.

The package was sent to Alessandro Sciretti, the leader of the League in Turin’s Circoscrizione 6 borough.

Like the package to Appendino, it was signed “Scuola Diaz”, the Genoa anti-globalist sleeping quarters that saw a brutal police raid at the G7 summit in 2001.

Sciretti recently came under fire for referring to the Diaz when talking about the punishment protesters who caused major damage in the city in February 7 should face. Police had said they suspected the Appendino package was sent by anarchists.
