He has been living in a hotel room for about 3.5 months. In June Antonio Roncolato just managed to escape from the conflagration in the London Grenfell Tower, and now the authorities are unable to find a new home for him. With some 500 others, he has signed up to help with the investigation into the disaster, because he is full of questions about the cause of the fire.

Rotterdam University closes building for fear of Grenfell Tower
Adapted at 01:29
The Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences has closed a part of one of its buildings as a precaution. The university has commissioned investigation of the façade panels of all buildings after the fatal fire in Grenfell Tower in London last summer.
“This investigation revealed a doubt about the fire safety of the façade panels that are attached to the oldest part (building section C) of the Kralingse Zoom location”, writes the Hogeschool Rotterdam in a press release. “Based on these findings, the university has commissioned independent research.”
This initial investigation has shown that the façade panels of the building component do not meet the current standards of fire safety. According to the university of applied sciences, the certainty can not be given that the building component is sufficiently safe for students, employees and other users.
In June, 71 people were killed in the fire in London because the fire spread rapidly through the outside cladding. The Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences therefore does not want to take any risks and has the building undergo further inspection in the coming days.
UPDATE: the building was indeed not safe.
