While on the left the ‘campo largo’ is characterized by deep cracks, in the center-right an authoritative figure is expressed who will make a decisive contribution to the work of the Italian Parliament. An important signal also in view of the next legislature, when a bipolar scheme will be recovered that the center-right already demonstrates in regions and cities that it knows how to interpret in the best way “.

“We have chosen a well-known and respected person, I think it is the best expression for what the Democratic Party considers its territory. But I say ‘never say never’ to those who say that the Democratic Party has already won, that it is a boarding school already lost for us. I’m confident and optimistic, “he added.
