Bridge collapsed in Genoa: Matteo Salvini and Luigi Di Maio cheered by the crowd at the funeral, elected officials on the left insulted

Members of Italy’s former government were jeered by the families of victims of the Genoa bridge collapse as four more bodies were found on Saturday.

There were shouts of “buffone” – clown – and “vergogna” – shame on you – as former minister and current Democratic Party secretary Maurizio Martina and Italy’s former defence minister Roberta Pinotti arrived at the state funeral in the northwestern Italian city.

Some families blame the former leaders for the collapse of the Morandi Bridge, which killed dozens on Tuesday.

At the state funeral, families cheered as a group of firefighters and rescuers entered the hall.

There were also cheers for Italy’s Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte and his deputy Matteo Salvini, the leader of the right-wing League party, and for President Sergio Mattarella, who spoke to each family during the service.
