Lipari (Messina), June 3 - Germans living on the
small, volcanic island of Stromboli say the Italian government
won't fix their electrical system so they're appealing to Angela
Merkel.
The German-born residents of Ginostra, a small village
accessible only by sea, say they hope that Merkel, the German
chancellor, will hear their pleas and intervene.
"We requested the help of the region and national
government, but we are left to our fate," said Karol Hoffman,
adding that about a dozen of his fellow Germans have lived for
30 years in Ginostra.
"We just have to make an appeal to Angela Merkel".
Electricity is now supplied by photovoltaic panels but the
system doesn't always work properly, complained Hoffman.
The small group of German residents aren't alone in their
plea.
Hoffman says the population swells to as many as 200
Germany tourists who rent vacation homes around Ginostra every
year.
He says that the area boasts great beauty and is a unique,
European gem that is ignored by too much of the world.
