“As regards the government, I shared various choices made by Palazzo Chigi, starting with the great attention towards foreign policy in the name of healthy and sacrosanct Atlantic and pro-European principles”, so the president of Fininvest and Mondadori
“I have a lot of respect for Giorgia Meloni. I find her capable, coherent and concrete. I appreciate her on a political level and I appreciate her a lot as a woman, even more so these days”. These are the words of Marina Berlusconi, president of Fininvest and Mondadori, interviewed by Bruno Vespa at the presentation of the essay “The rancor and the hopes”, taken from the Giornale. “As far as the government is concerned – he adds – I shared various choices made by Palazzo Chigi, starting with the great attention towards foreign policy in the name of healthy and sacrosanct Atlantic and pro-European principles”.
Still on Meloni, Marina added: “When my father passed away, I felt his closeness to our family, and for this I am grateful. As I said, I shared various choices made by Palazzo Chigi, starting with the great attention towards the foreign policy: we are living in a dramatic phase, in which our very identity, liberal and democratic, is under attack. Russia’s aggression against Ukraine and the massacres in the Middle East are the most evident and atrocious demonstration of this. In relation to economic policy, then, I appreciate the caution and sense of responsibility with which this executive is managing the public accounts. Undoubtedly there have also been some moves that I liked less, and I have not hidden it.” Finally: “But it must always be considered that the government found itself having to face a very complicated macroeconomic situation, between war and inflation, as well as having to remedy some truly indigestible legacies of the past.”
