It’s Meloni at the Top: Who is Italy’s New Right Wing PM?
Thursday, 29 September
As Giorgia Meloni’s victory sparks concern across Europe, we discuss what you need to know about Italy’s new PM. How surprising, and worrying, is it that Italy has moved to the right? Alex Andreou is joined by Chiara Albanese, Bloomberg's Rome-based political correspondent, to explore Meloni’s track record and ask what kind of leader she’ll be.
“She is brushing off her fascist roots to appeal to more people.”
“She is woman, but she isn’t a feminist. This isn’t a victory for women.”
“The right are holding power because they are a coalition, but the Italian left is totally fragmented.”
