Giorgia Meloni, praise of prudence


The assertive electoral campaign, to the point of aggression, left room for the prudence highlighted by the first three institutional talks held, immediately before and immediately after the oath. The new episode of “La Guida”

In these very first hours of office, Giorgia Meloni shows great circumspection. The assertive electoral campaign, to the point of aggression, left room for the prudence highlighted by the first three institutional talks held, immediately before and immediately after the oath. Perhaps prudence does not suit the new prime minister, but for sure she knows that it is indispensable at the moment. It is said that with Mattarella the past – with stormy moments, even if one-sided – did not matter. Time has changed and wisdom does not stop living in the Quirinale.

Institutions and the duty of collaboration

And then there is room to see – with some institutional satisfaction – that between the President of the Republic and President Meloni there is a way for loyal collaboration between institutions. Valuable collaboration, for the first time surrounded by widespread distrust that a figure like Mattarella’s can help reduce, sooner and better than anyone else. Meloni knows, he listens. There are arcana imperii he wants and has yet to experience. The second meeting is the plastic image of the beauty of democracy, served even to those who do not believe in it.

The beauty of democracy

The welcome on the first floor of Palazzo Chigi, the long conversation with Draghi, the growing awareness that the outgoing prime minister is right on one point: isolation does not pay. In Europe but, one might add, also in Italy. Relations with Parliament, oppositions, intermediate bodies cannot be neglected. Never, but particularly from her at this time. The third meeting, very close, is precisely with Europe. To quote the dearest enemy, Enrico Letta: Serie A Europe, the one with which a country – or a nation, as you prefer – like Italy must be. Macron. The effort to put the past aside here is even more concrete. Meloni’s Italy remains an object to be observed carefully, but looking to the future, not to the past. It is already a lot, not at all obvious.

Talk, listen

Soon, Meloni will be in front of parliament, out of trust in his government. An essential moment for our democracy. Talk, listen. Whether it is a high point depends on the awareness of the respective institutional roles. The country – the nation – is waiting.
