The dem secretary, Nicola Zingaretti, tries to make some historical clarity. Remembering that this is a song of the Italian Resistance and not a party anthem. And he turns to the Northern League leader, Matteo Salvini: "Dear Salvini, if you live in a democratic country it is also because there have been many and many who have lost their lives singing" Bella ciao "for our freedom. Do not offend an Italian story that it's everyone's. "
"It is striking the angry reaction of the Italian right wing, Meloni and Salvini, who thus reconfirm their distance from a sincere anti-fascist spirit", adds the president of Tuscany, Enrico Rossi.
Yesterday, to attack first was the leader of Fdi Giorgia Meloni, with a post entitled "European Soviet Union" writing: "Only I think this ridiculous theater is outrageous?". "Congratulations to Pd and 5Stelle for choosing Gentiloni as the representative of Italy in Europe", Salvini had written. Adding: "On the next round they will also sing Red Flag". Some distancing also from Forza Italia, evidently more and more in a sovranist version: "It is no coincidence that the commissioners who sing are all socialists. We popular are serious and a cretinaggine of the kind we would never have made", said the Forza MEP, Mr Martusciello.
But the attack a Hello beautiful arouses irritation even on social media. In some cases, even irony. And there are also those who remember: "I learned that song from the nuns".
