“I want to completely distance myself from what was said by the engineer Carlo De Benedetti, who is my children’s grandfather, because they are extremely serious words that have deeply disturbed me, spoken towards the Prime Minister and in particular, but not only, of a woman”. Thus Paola Ferrari at Adnkronos, in the aftermath of the strong declarations of Carlo De Benedetti during the festival of the newspaper ‘Domani’ in Modena on the government and on the Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni, which unleashed a media storm.
“I have had a very distant relationship with my husband’s family for several years, but in any case certain things hurt me – thunders Ferrari -. I find it very serious to use these terms, which offend the person but also the Italian institutions for the position that Giorgia Meloni covers, and also all the Italians who voted for her. I want to express to Giorgia Meloni all my solidarity and all my deep regret for the words that have been addressed to her”.
The Rai journalist, who is married to the son of the engineer De Benedetti, the entrepreneur Marco, continues: “I completely dissociate myself, I totally distance myself. I think that respect for political opponents is crucial, so I also feel I offended. Disgusting, serious, offensive and inappropriate words, also because the political opponent must always be respected”. (by Ilaria Floris)
