The stage set up as if it were a large open window, a clear reminder of the reopening that now affects the whole country. And then no party symbol because, as the slogan of the event says, ‘Italy first’. The Lega and Matteo Salvini are back among the people, in Rome, to “thank the Italians who have been extraordinary in this year and a half” of Covid. According to the organizers, 5 thousand people respond to the call in Piazza Bocca della Verità, a stone’s throw from the Circus Maximus, “despite access restrictions” and the great heat. They wave Italian flag, almost everyone wears a mask, which Salvini hopes to see removed as soon as possible because “if all of Europe is saying, at least outdoors, let’s breathe again, I think Italy should do the same”. Above all they listen to the Captain take it out on the National Association of Magistrates on the subject of the referendum on justice that the Carroccio presented together with the Radical Party and re-launch the appeal to the center-right to join.
“After Covid, politics does not have the right but the duty to be united, fast, concrete and effective – underlines Salvini from the stage -. This is what the Italians ask of us: not divisions and quarrels, but concreteness and compactness. Inherent, and I will arrive. to the goal because I’m a big head, to ask all the friends of the center-right to get together to help Italy “. The leader of the League therefore invites the allies of the coalition to “leave aside jealousies, selfishness, fences, divisions” and to “unite the best of ideas, values, cultures with a founding charter of common values that put development at the center, the future, development, the family and above all freedom “. Soon, Lega sources assure, Salvini will return to meet the president of Forza Italia, Silvio Berlusconi.
However, topicality is also occupied by another theme, that of justice. “I saw the broken reaction of a current of magistrates who speak of a danger when there are referendums – says Salvini -. I’m sorry to have read certain tones from those who should be above the parties. The president’s one sounds like a threat. of the Anm. Woe to those who threaten. I hope that those in duty intervene, ask for compliance with the Constitution “. The reference is to the declarations of the president of the ANM, Giuseppe Santalucia, who announced a “firm reaction” since “the very fact that the referendum issue is brought forward seems to express a judgment of substantial inadequacy of the reform system set up by the government; and implies the desire to call the people to an evaluation of the satisfaction of the judiciary “. Words that do not go down to Salvini or to Maurizio Turco, secretary of the Radical Party, who is always clear from the stage in Rome: “This thing of the ANM is very serious, it is an attack on democracy and the President of the Republic must intervene. Silence di Mattarella in recent years on justice is something incomprehensible “.
