Today, Giorgia Meloni will fly to Brussels for her first trip as Prime Minister.

A meeting with Roberta Metsola, President of the European Parliament, is scheduled for 4.30 p.m., while at 5.30 p.m. with Ursula von der Leyen, President of the European Commission. Finally, at 7 p.m., there will be the summit with Charles Michel, President of the European Council.

In the following days, the Prime Minister will travel to Sharm el-Sheikh for the COP27 and to Bali for the G20 summit.

Meloni’s strategy

The Prime Minister intends to defend the national interest, where the Union is “invasive in the little things” that the States could and could “do better”.

Files on the table

The files on the table are energy and manoeuvre, but also the reform of the Stability Pact which risks penalizing Italy because of the debt. And also the implementation of the NRP, support for Ukraine, including military support. It is possible that the issue of migrant management will also be addressed. Before leaving for Brussels, Giorgia Meloni heard Japanese President Fumio Kishida, Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez and Polish Mateusz Morawiecki.

Giorgia Meloni’s idea of ​​Europe

His idea of ​​Europe is based on the principle of “subsidiarity”: a “federal” union, which deals with “major issues” and leaves the rest to the States. This is about “energy supply” rather than “clam diameter”. According to Meloni, there is no “foreign policy, but it deals with gender”, as Bruno Vespa’s book asserts.

Abortion, the anti-rave decree and beach permits

At the EU summit, the Italian Prime Minister will discuss the first steps of the centre-right executive, which are causing controversy in Rome. It should specify that Italy is not a place where rights are denied, starting with the right to “demonstrate, to express disagreement”, or where abortion is renounced (“to all my life – he tells Vespa – I never said I would get my hands on Law 194). And at the same time Meloni will emphasize that Italy will make its voice heard, defend its interests, such as the licenses on the beaches, on which there is a “disparity” of treatment with other countries that “have extended the concessions”, that it is configured as “unconstitutional”.
