Livio Gigliuto, Vice President at Istituto Piepoli, guest of Giancarlo Usai's Press Review on RaiNews24, for an analysis of the first pages of the day after.
During the evening press review conducted by Giancarlo Usai of It’s already tomorrow, Livio Gigliuto, Vice President at Istituto Piepoli, tells how the honeymoon between the Premier and the country is over.
The attitude of Italians towards Mario Draghi was very favorable at the beginning. The consensus was very high, the highest ever recorded by a Prime Minister in the last 15 years. However, in recent weeks, trust in Mario Draghi has been decreasing. In fact, he has lost almost 15 points and this is because –as Il Foglio said, speaking of Draghi’s five pragmatic challenges–, the most important challenge is vaccination, if the vaccination campaign does not accelerate, we move towards a more complicated phase of trust.
How will the story of the Recovery Plan go in the dialogue with Europe, asks Giancarlo Usai to Livio Gigliuto, Does the Government have sufficient strength to impose these extraordinary reforms, as the Prime Minister showed them ambitiously, presenting the “road map” for the National Recovery and Resilience Plan (PNRR) to the Parliament?
The government led by Draghi enjoys two levels of credibility. The first level is national and although what has been said above, it remains a very important level in public opinion. The second is determined by a large majority that guarantees the positions the government has in our country. There is also the issue of international legitimacy which is very strong and allows our country to go and talk to international institutions with an attitude strength,and greater credibility missed in recent years.
About National Recovery and Resilience Plan, Italians have clear ideas, net of the need to intervene on health and work, we asked the Italians what are the priorities for the Recovery Plan and from the survey, carried out among a representative sample of adult Italian population, it emerged that in the first four positions there are sustainable measures from an ecological point of view. Five years ago this was not a central issue as it is now in public opinion. This is a positive fact and could be useful in the international debate and comparison.
