'Sobrado de bad faith', Mempo Giardinelli's response to the accusation of the Argentine ambassador in Italy


He crossed Roberto Carlés, who from Twitter had said that the writer canceled a presentation at the Argentine diplomatic residence in Rome on March 24 because he was not allowed to stay there for nine nights.

The writer Mempo Giardinelli crossed the Argentine ambassador to Italy, Roberto Carlés, this Tuesday and accused him of having "bad faith" for having indicated that he canceled a presentation at the diplomatic residence that the country has in Rome in the framework of March 24 because they did not allow him to stay there for nine nights.

"The exalted tweeter of an ambassador, in my opinion, in bad faith, which unleashed the obedient fantasy of various so-called journalists," Giardinelli wrote in the middle of his defense, explaining a different version from the one Carlés had given on social networks.

The Argentine ambassador in Rome had not named him, but he ruled that it was "unfortunate that there are people who believe they have the right to stay in an embassy, ​​because of their resume or because they hold public office and, even worse, who are offended and send messages insulting if they are informed that there are no rooms available (occupied by my own family)".

Giardinelli's Full Disclaimer

"Yesterday, just after my regular Monday article was published in the Página 12 newspaper, and a few hours after the release of a strong political statement signed by El Manifesto Argentino – a political group of which I have been a part for more 20 years old–, some Buenos Aires media outlets published a twisted lie, with obedient reproductions in some newspapers in the interior of the country. 

I will not be part of a scandal that did not exist, so I simply say: 1) that in all this trip I have not set foot in the City of Rome, and instead I am in the region of the Abruzzo mountains working on a novel, and from here I will go to Fiumicino Airport the day after tomorrow without going through Rome.

2) that all that happened was that while I was at the Bologna Book Fair, the person in charge of Culture of the Argentine Embassy in Rome proposed that I attend the embassy next Thursday the 23rd to present the film “Argentina 1985” at an event. .

3) I replied that it was impossible for me precisely because I am not in Rome and the plane tickets that I bought two months ago are to return to Argentina at dawn on Friday the 24th.

4) Notwithstanding, and in good will, I offered to consider my presence at the event if the embassy would accommodate me that night so that after the event I could quickly go to Fiumicino Airport to return to the country.

Everything else was the exalted tweeter of an ambassador in my opinion exceedingly bad faith, which unleashed the obedient fantasy of various so-called journalists.

I sign this text in the City of Pescara, Italy, on March 21, 2023".

Mempo Giardinelli"
