Rome has a new mayor. Equal opportunities, egual rights, for all: finally!

“Rome will return to take care of its citizens, and will listen to them.
I feel a very strong commitment and will practice speaking directly with the Romans, out of the building, to raise the critical issues in the field and find solutions together. Because Rome has to find a soul, a spirit of community.

A soul that today Rome does not have.
I’ll give it everything. I’m already working to build my team on the basis of merit, transparency and competence. And to fix the first objectives of my program achievable in the first 100 days.
We will do everything to get back to Rome we love.
Our city will return to dream and to hope.
Rome will return to being international.”
