The Argentine ambassador in Italy crossed the writer K Mempo Giardinelli: "Unfortunate that they believe they have the right to stay" in the diplomatic residence


Roberto Carlés showed his anger on Twitter without naming him. 'He didn't ask to stay one night, but nine,' he stated. And he accused him of sending him "insulting messages" for denying him a stay.

The Argentine Embassy in Rome was involved in a

strong scandal

this Monday, due to the complaints of its owner,

Roberto Carlés,

against "people" who tried to stay in the diplomatic residence

that he occupies and who were denied their stay.

Carlés, political ambassador of the Alberto Fernández government and

 friend of Vice President Cristina Kirchner and Pope Francis

, surprised a few hours ago with two tweets that revolutionized the Foreign Ministry.

"Unfortunate that there are people who believe they have the right to stay in an embassy

, ​​because of their resume or because they have a public position and, even worse,

who are offended and send insulting messages

if they are informed that there are no rooms available (occupied by my own family),” he wrote first.

Then he affirmed, mysteriously: “I will never give the name, but I comment on it above all because the violence of his message shocked me.

He was so offended that he decided to cancel his participation in an activity on March 24

, demonstrating his real commitment.

By the way,

he didn't ask to stay one night but nine."


was able to learn from very high sources that the person Carlés is referring to is

the Kirchnerist intellectual, journalist and writer

Mempo Giardinelli.

In Buenos Aires they said that although Carlés was not very "diplomatic" when publishing those tweets, his anger arose from

an invitation that the journalist and writer had to present the film "Argentina, 1985" in Italy.

Giardinelli, always according to the information obtained by


, replied that

he would go alone if he was accommodated in the stately Argentine residence

where Carlés lives with his family and two children.

Mempo Giardinelli had been invited to present the film "Argentina, 1985" in Italy.

The Argentine embassy and residence is in Plaza Esquilino.

It is a very stately building that requires major repairs to its structure, like many Argentine headquarters abroad, the result of decades of deterioration and lack of budget.

The residence has a wing of rooms separated from the family that

many ambassadors used to help artists, but this is not the current case

with Carlés.

Officials generally do have to be housed there.
