About Angelo
Dutch multimedia journalist based in Rome, Italy, since 2001. Graduated from the School of Journalism in Zwolle (The Netherlands) in 1995, I've worked for 5 years for the national public radio in The Netherlands before I moved to Rome. Ever since I'm in Rome I made radio reports (from 3 minute features to 90 minute documentaries), always for Dutch public radio. I always recorded and edited my own stuff. in 2003 I started working for television as well and in 2007 I bought a camera to do my own filming as well. And with the filming came the editing. So now I do all my stuff on my own.

Famous tower in Bologna 'creaks and groans' and threatens to collapse

01 Nov 2023  |  www.parool.nl
The Garisenda Tower in Bologna, over nine hundred years old and standing at 48 meters, is showing signs of distress, with unusual movements detected by sensors. Traffic around the monument has been halted to assess the tower's condition, which leans 4 degrees off plumb. Experts, including Professor Pier Luigi Cervellati of Italia Nostra, suggest making the area car-free to prevent further damage. The city has engaged an engineering firm to stabilize the tower temporarily, the same firm that salvaged the Costa Concordia and was involved in rebuilding the collapsed bridge in Genoa. A technical committee has also been formed for the tower's restoration.

Tourist bus plunges from viaduct near Venice, at least 21 dead and dozens injured

03 Oct 2023  |  Het Parool
A tourist bus crashed through the guardrail of a viaduct in Mestre, Italy, and fell approximately 30 meters, resulting in at least 21 fatalities, including two children, and dozens of injuries. The bus, operated by La Linea and hired by Jolly Camping in Marghera, was carrying tourists from Germany, Ukraine, France, and Croatia. The accident caused a fire, complicating rescue efforts and halting train traffic between the mainland and Venice. Venice's Mayor Luigi Brugnaro declared a day of mourning, and Italian officials, including Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni and Minister of the Interior Matteo Piantedosi, have expressed their condolences. The cause of the crash is under investigation.

Price war boosts refugee flow to Lampedusa: 'Competition between criminal gangs'

18 Sep 2023  |  parool.nl
European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen visited Lampedusa at the invitation of Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni to understand the severity of the migration crisis. Italy, France, and Germany's interior ministers discussed the crisis with the EU Commissioner for Home Affairs. A price war among human smugglers in Tunisia and Libya is making it easier and cheaper to reach Europe, with nearly 10,000 migrants arriving in Lampedusa last week. Frontex warns of an increase in arrivals. Italy's plan for a tent camp faces local opposition. Von der Leyen proposed an emergency plan for Italy, emphasizing the need for a European response to illegal immigration. The Tunisia deal, aimed at reducing migration in exchange for investments, has not been effective, with a 60% increase in departures after the agreement. Tunisia's President Kais Saied denied entry to a European Parliament delegation seeking to assess the situation.

Restless supervolcano puts 3 million people around Naples on edge: 'We monitor it continuously'

04 Jul 2023  |  parool.nl
The ground beneath Pozzuoli, west of Naples, is rising by about 15 millimeters per month, accompanied by frequent earthquakes. Residents like Peppe Renzuto live in high-risk areas with evacuation plans in place. The Campi Flegrei supervolcano, largely under Naples and the Bay of Pozzuoli, is being closely monitored by experts like Giuseppe Mastrolorenzo from the Italian Institute for Geology and Volcanology. The last major eruption was 30,000 years ago, and the area is showing similar earth deformations as before previous eruptions. Theories about the cause of the uplift vary, and no evacuation is planned as it would be a political decision.

Ordering delicious food? Delivery bags often teem with bacteria, according to research

02 Jul 2023  |  parool.nl
Gambero Rosso, Italy's prestigious enogastronomic magazine, has highlighted serious hygiene issues in the food delivery industry. Their research found that delivery bags often contain high levels of bacteria, with meal boxes on delivery riders' backs being particularly contaminated. In Italy, unlike restaurants and food stores which are regularly inspected by a special police unit, food transport remains largely unchecked, posing a real risk of food poisoning. In the Netherlands, the NVWA acknowledges the lack of specific controls on couriers and is conducting its own investigation into the hygiene of food couriers. Delivery companies like Glovo, Uber Eats, and Deliveroo place the responsibility for the cleanliness of meal boxes on the couriers, who also have to pay for their own cleaning supplies. Gambero Rosso criticizes the brief and superficial training provided to couriers and suggests hiring staff dedicated to cleaning and disinfecting meal boxes.

Italy sweeps through 'too left-wing' state broadcaster

16 May 2023  |  Het Parool
The Italian state broadcaster RAI is undergoing changes with the departure of popular talkshow host Fabio Fazio to Warner Bros Discovery. The new RAI direction, influenced by Giorgia Meloni's government, is not renewing Fazio's contract and seems to be targeting critical voices, including other left-leaning program makers. The Democratic Party criticizes these moves as damaging to television, culture, and Italy. The political influence on RAI is not new, but the current government's actions appear to be more aggressive in eliminating dissent.

For this 4 episodes of this 8 piece series on Dutch public television, I did research and fixing. For the four episodes, Sicilie, Florence, Milaan, Turijn, I did all the research, I found the interviewees and scouted the locations.

Since a few months I have my own drone (DJI Mavic Air), this is a video I made with the drone and my DSLR camera for an Agriturismo in Tuscany, Italy.

Millions fraud in Vatican with donations for the poor

02 Feb 2016  |  eenvandaag.avrotros.nl
Clergy in the Vatican have been systematically defrauding the St. Peter's Pence, a voluntary donation from believers intended for global aid projects for the poor, with tens of millions of euros ending up in the pockets of priests and cardinals. This is detailed in investigative journalist Gianluigi Nuzzi's new book 'De Kruistocht', set to release in the Netherlands on February 20. The book also highlights lavish living by cardinals and money laundering and fraud at the Vatican Bank (IOR). Dutch priest Karel Kasteel, named in leaked documents, denies any wrongdoing. Nuzzi, known for publishing secret documents from Pope Benedictus's butler in 2011, faces a church court for stealing and publishing documents, with a potential sentence of 4 to 6 years.
