“On the theme of reopening of borders we need a European response because if we act in a different and decomposed way, the EU spirit is lost. And Europe collapses“. So Luigi Di Maio in a post on Facebook he talked about the decision of some countries that for the moment have decided to keep their borders closed to Italian tourists for fear of coronavirus. “If anyone thinks of treating us like a lazaretto – warns the Foreign Minister – then know that we will not be immobile. Patience has a limit. It does not seem to me the time to make controversy, but I want to say one thing clearly: we demand respect ”.
And this is where Di Maio is a bit of Salvini, proudly claiming that “Italy is beautiful, unique, has crazy wonders, fantastic beaches. And it probably has no rivals. ” As foreign minister, the former 5-star political leader ensures that he is at work non-stop: “On Friday 5 June I will go to Germany, Saturday I will be in Slovenia and Tuesday in Greece. In these meetings I will explain to my colleagues that Italy has been ready to receive foreign tourists since 15 June and that we will act with the utmost transparency “.
