“We are not closed, but open”. Thus begins the final press conference of the General States. The premier speaks from villa Pamphili and, telling the work of these days, sends a hug to Alex Zanardi, the champion who is still fighting after a bad accident.

At the press conference, he specified that a decision has not yet been made.
“The government’s plan to review the abuse of office, tax liability, is strongly shared,” he continued. And again: “We must give impetus to the reduction of the tax wedge with a benefit for workers: we had already prepared a measure in July. It is a right direction that we must pursue ”
“The world’s largest CO2 capture and storage center will be born in Ravenna,” he said.

Separately. “The forces of the center-right have not accepted my first invitation, I will come back to propose a new opportunity for discussion. I think it is better to meet with each force to have greater tranquility with a dedicated space “. Carroccio’s response was immediate: “Conte announces that he wants to invite the center-right separately? The center-right is united and there is no need to waste time. The government calls the coalition. If Conte’s intentions are finally serious, the center-right will present itself as it happened in the past, “explain League sources.
The simplification decree, he assured, will be at the next Council of Ministers.
