Giuseppe Conte’s former spokesman spoke during an interview with the “Belve” program. “It was an important campaign and Conte was the right person to restart the Movement, I didn’t want there to be any stain. I made this choice so as not to damage him and the party and I regretted it the next day”, he confessed
“I think of the good of Conte and of the Movement. It was an important campaign and Conte was the right person to restart the Movement, I didn’t want there to be any stain. I made this choice so as not to damage him and the party and the next day I repented”. So Rocco Casalino, former spokesman for the former prime minister Giuseppe Conte, spoke of his failure to run for political elections, in an interview granted to the program “Belve”, broadcast on Rai 2.
“Next time, though, I’ll apply”
“I told myself that I could also deal with it, 12 years in the Movement is an experience that would have been useful in a new phase and in Parliament. I discussed this with Conte who believed that my communication skills were important and he said to me: ‘you choose, however it is clear that you are needed in communication'”, Casalino reported again, recounting the facts . “However, I was convinced that I would have damaged and I didn’t feel like it. Next time, however, I will apply, if the opportunity is offered to me,” he specified.
The relationship with Conte
“How much does Conte owe me? Part of my vanity would say that I’m behind it but it’s not like that. My ability is to enhance a person’s characteristics. Certainly, in the first phase I helped him in simpler communication, to make the human side, but the credit is all his”, he reported again, speaking of his relationship with Giuseppe Conte. “We both owe each other something. I’ve learned a lot from him, I’ve grown a lot with him and I’ve changed and I think he’s taken something from me. We’ve both been useful to each other.” And when asked if he feels abandoned by the president of the M5S, Casalino has no doubts. “I don’t feel abandoned. He has a different role but I still take care of his communication. The role of spokesperson no longer exists, no one has it. There was no estrangement,” he clarified.
Originally “I was on the left”
Then, here’s a confession. “Originally I was on the left, or rather of the Communist Refoundation to be precise, close to Bertinotti, then close to the DS and 10 years later the M5S was born and I became 100% grillino”, Casalino said again.
