The President of the Republic Sergio Mattarella will attend the final of the European Championships at Wembley between Italy and England. The dilemma told by the newspapers about who among those who should have been present in the stands for the final was quickly resolved, with the hypothesis of a presence of Mario Draghi over in a few hours. The decision of the Quirinale will also make the superstitious players happy, given that President Mattarella was present at Italy’s first match in these European Championships, that is, the debut at the Olimpico against Turkey, won 3-0 by the Azzurri. Mattarella, who has always followed football, would not have missed a single minute of the Azzurri at the European Championships. After the state visit to Paris, the president also anticipated the return by two hours to watch the Azzurri without distraction. Even the most illustrious precedents confirm that the Head of State in the stands does well. Starting with the irrepressible presence of president Sandro Pertini in the final of the ’82 World Cup in Spain. It certainly did well in 2006, when President Giorgio Napolitano sat next to Angela Merkel in Berlin. Less luck instead led the presidents of the Council in the finals of the national team. How can we forget, for example, Mario Monti, who in the last European final in Kyev in 2012, Italy had to surrender to Spain 4-0.
