It is not the first time that Salvini speaks racistly about the Roma: a year ago he had addressed a racist insult both on television and on social networks to a Roma woman who had contested him. More generally, when he talks about integration and reception, Salvini often uses forcing and expressions that fuel hostility towards foreigners – such as the term “clandestine” to indicate a person who lives illegally in the Italian territory – as well as spreading a large number of false information. .
Five years ago Beppe Grillo, founder of the M5S, had said a similar thing: in a tweet that was later deleted he had written that new administrative elections must be held in Rome “before the city is submerged by mice, rubbish and illegal immigrants”.
