The year 2000 is a year Antonio Bassolino, mayor of Naples since
1993, will not soon forget. The year had begun very well for Bassolino:
he was considered “the mayor Italians loved most” and
was extremely popular in Naples, where he was seen as a public
official with a knack for listening to the average citizen. The year,
however, ended pretty badly for Bassolino after he left City Hall to
become President of the Campania Region. Bassolino left behind
many unfinished projects, most notably the urban plan, the possible
victory of the Center-Right at the next municipal election, and
encountered many difficulties in governing the Region due to
intense party opposition to his actions and programs.
