“It is a fact not inconsiderable that the definition of a patriot is no longer seen as a derogatory, or at least outdated, term, but as an element shared and claimed by virtually all political forces, including those who have historically considered it almost universal Shame.” Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni said this in the video message at the conference “Nation and Homeland. “Rediscovered Ideas” underway in Senate.
“It is a great victory and I am proud of the contribution that we have also made in this direction. Because my dream is to live in an Italy where, despite all the differences, everyone can define and act as a patriot, or rather people who put the “interest of the nation above the interest of a part or a party”, added Meloni added.

“I never believed in the theory that the country was going down. Of course, there is no doubt that the idea of homeland has been in crisis for years and has been pushed into the shadows of history. But it’s not true that this idea was resolved, it never was.”
“Instead it continued to flow, even unconsciously, into people’s consciousness and has now resurfaced with all its might, returning to manifest in the light of the sun. Obviously, however, it is up to us to feed that conscience and in some ways to be a source of improvement,” added Meloni.
