This hard-won victory concludes a campaign fought both in Italy, and for the first time with such a determinant outcome, among the Italian communities outside of the country. This was particularly the case in the important community in Belgium, where we were happy to support the candidates of the left. But it also concludes a dark period in the political life of a great European country, and opens the way to a new and hopefully long era that will put substance and people back at the heart of politics.
As for the near future, we are looking forward to seeing Italy taking back its place in the concert of the European nation – in front of the social and political integration process, rather than at the tail of it, where the right wing put it these last years.
Addressing you again with our most sincere congratulations,
