The joke from the leader of Italia Viva after the Emg/Adnkronos survey which gives the secretary of the CGIL 48% of the consensus in the centre-left
“Landini leader of the Democratic Party? I didn’t think they were in such bad shape.” This is the comment of the president of Italia Viva, Matteo Renzi, regarding the results of the Emg/Adnkronos survey which assigns the secretary of the CGIL 48% of voters’ favor as a potential leader of the centre-left.
But the former Florentine prime minister also has some for the League. “Florence is the city least suited to hosting sovereignists, because by definition it is the most universal city, which has always owed its success and its money to the fact of being at the center of international trade. The idea that Salvini brings the sovereignist leaders there means that Salvini, despite his family visits in Florence, has understood nothing about it.”It’s nothing new. Salvini and Florence have a complicated relationship. On public order, I have full confidence in the full collaboration of the organizers and the police forces and the prefect, the police commissioner and all the others. What is a bit striking is that if we act as sovereignists, Italy will die, Italy is by definition a country that needs globalisation, everyone has understood this and Salvini will understand it too sooner or later”, concluded Renzi.
