“Giuse ‘how good you are”. More than as a political leader of the 5s, the former premier Giuseppe Conte in Calabria seems to make inroads as a sex symbol. Or at least, this seems to have heated the hearts in Corigliano-Rossano, where a woman screamed at the meeting to show her appreciation for the former prime minister. “I would like to be in your girlfriend’s place,” the activist yells at him, stuck to the fence like a groupie. Conte laughs, collects, but does not stop there too much. He returns – or at least tries – to talk about what regional policy should do, while the echo of laughter and applause fades. In short, the “Conte’s girls” are water under the bridge, on social media the former prime minister no longer pulls so much, but apparently he still breaks through in Calabria. The video, extrapolated from the full shot of Conte’s speech posted by the pentastellated candidate Davide Tavernise, is making the rounds of social media. But not everyone seems to like it. And there are users who grumble “we always let ourselves be recognized”.
