Antico Caffè Greco is in danger of closing, despite the constraint imposed by the Ministry in 1953. And this time it seems that closure is truly inexorable unless there is a mobilisation of intelligence, institutions and politics determined to the end to prevent it. And this is because on 22 June – that is, in just 20 days’ time – the eviction is scheduled to take place, with bailiffs setting the seals. It is absolutely necessary to prevent this havoc that would harm the image of Italy, since the Caffè Greco has been known throughout the world for centuries. It is therefore necessary that intellectuals, artists, men of culture, politicians, ministers, institutions, citizens all rally around the Antico Caffè Greco to prevent a move that would damage the history and tourism of this city and of the whole of Italy. A decision that would in any case prevent any other activity given the presence of an immovable constraint, but which would have the sole effect of keeping a magical place full of emotions, rich in art and history closed to the public with its paintings, tapestries and photos inside inaccessible to all. It is for this reason that the owners of the Antico Caffe Greco are calling a press conference for Tuesday 6 June at 11 a.m. at Via dei condotti 86 to make public opinion and the institutions aware of Pellegrini and Iozzi’s desire to make an offer to the Ospedale Israelitico to purchase the walls so as to bring the Antico Caffe Greco back under a single ownership as it was at the beginning of its history and prevent its extinction once and for all.
