He had great success, prior to library Ubik and then to Lions in Sala Bianca, The visit of Como Director of “Corriere della Sera” Luciano Fontana Wednesday 6 giugno.
Guest of Award “City of Como” the distinguished journalist presented his book A leaderless country, a portrait of Italy 25 years of Tangentopoli, and proposed his reading of the current political landscape. A lesson in journalism, that in the Via Solferino newspaper style was measured, deep and objective, a curious and respectful eyes on the real short, with tasty background that have allowed us to learn more about the protagonists and actors on the scene and also nterrogarsi more informed decision about the new League-Grillini Government.
“The elections of 4 last March have been the birth of a new world – said Fontana – I'm almost 35 years that I'm a journalist and I've seen all the colors but never a lab experiment like the one we are in now, it had never happened that a prime minister was devoid of political experience like the present. It means that we all hope to receive a phone call to Palazzo Chigi, but to think of it is also worrying. When I met Matteo Salvini for the book, He had sworn that he would never do a government with the league. So is proof that in Italy we can expect some surprises. Not even the poor would have imagined the President Mattarella 88 days of continuous twists that led to the c Count Government. How is it that we have come to a similar situation? After the 92 we had hoped it was rising a new political model in which we chose the prime minister suffered a durable government. None of this has happened in a quarter century”.
Nella reflection of Fontana as well as portraits said space ad personam: “Matteo Renzi has the intellectual and luckily ability to reflect the age and exit the referendum setback on which he played all, It is a good poker player who always wants to revive. That grief should remove it. So far he has not done, and it is also seen in his address to the other Senate yesterday. It is one that always needs a challenge. something to be scrapped. And so it is likely to end badly.
The real issues after 10 years of crisis were other, no constitutional reform and with the breaking of the covenant with Berlusconi was the victim of internal divisions in his party. Salvini had been treated badly by Bossi, instead. One day as a journalism manual to put it to Radio Padania and grows there as a political, learn to listen to the belly of the people. But the cutest in Italian politics remains Berlusconi although in truth the political personality I appreciate most is De Gasperi, He was the star of an Italy sober, simply that he wanted to recover.
What we have lost that spirit?
Yet we are the country that does a great deal, It has a wonderful association fabric. But it is disappearing culture of merit. We are important because we are global, the only companies that have held up are good at doing things that we sell worldwide. We have nothing that allows us to make us perceive as self-sufficient. The idea of an Italian who does not live in the global market is our purpose, then. And let me also say something about the system of representative democracy, that is the only way that I can think. I do not believe in direct democracy. If I choose a politician I do not want it to be like I want it to be better otherwise why give him the delegation? Outside the representative democracy is the Orwellian Animal Farm where there is always a more equal than others, at the end. Direct democracy is only for small communities. And the polemic against the intermediate bodies in these 25 sacrficati years have been in the name of the direct relationship between the political and the people are vain because selecting a ruling class not just a network where everyone believes to count for something but no one really counts for nothing”.
