Nurse shares her experience treating COVID-19 patients in Miami and Los Angeles
"L. A county became the first in the nation to hit more than one million cases since the beginning of the pandemic. I see you. Availability remains at 0% at most hospitals. Cherie Perry Smith is a traveling ICU nurse who arrived in L a last week and she stationed at Martin Luther King Jr Community Hospital in south L. A, and she recovered from having Cove it back in October. Welcome to press play, Cherie and Welcome to L A. Thank you, Madeline. Thank you for having me. Well, it's great to have you and this is your fourth station for covert treatment. I believe you were in Atlanta. Miami in Texas. How does the situation in l A compared to those cities? It's really rough. It was probably most comparable to Miami. Honestly, um, is, um I see you capacity is just it's beyond capacity. Um you know him, Okay. It was a 10 bed. I see you, and then it was expanded to 20. And now there are 35. We're still expanding. So it serves a community of 1.8 million in Compton. So it's It's really hard and Nations are The communities being Rod's very heavily. So it reminded me of a lot of Miami. Just limited resource is and people coming in really late in coming in. Really, really Siddiq. Oh, right, because they're putting off treatment because they know that there's very little capacity, right? Right. So people are coming in already, you know, with Multiple organ systems failing. Wow. So when you're comparing it to Miami, what do you mean by that? Take us back to the Miami days and what it looked like I was in Miami over the summer, and that's actually where o'clock clothing on while I was there. I mean, I didn't cover till October, but it was in Miami. It was it was like working. The ICU is normally pretty stable, like you is not like working in the ER. So when I've been er nurse, too, but I preferred ICU because it's always controlled. There's this uncontrolled is done stable, multiple cold's going off with multiple patients. It's a war zone on DATs. What Miami felt like and L a certainly Was very reminiscent of that period of time in my career where the patients are so unpredictable, and it's just when you have multiple people coding at the same time. It's very hard to give them the resources they need, because you're stretched very thin. And so that is what you're seeing now in L. A All right, um, lovely. We have PPE here, Which is my blessing. Just because Miami we were given one gown for patient per day. I was in one in 95 masks for three weeks. I get on in 95 mask every time I come on shift, so I'm grateful for that here, and I can use gowns one time and one time out. I'm grateful that you know people have generously donated to this hospital on we have peopie. But the patients are very, very stick. You know, we have patients in their thirties there. We have mothers. We have fathers. We have just people and it's really sad. You're on zoom calls, and they're saying goodbye and It's very hard. Were you expecting that? MLK has been on CNN. They've been told it the epicenter of the epicenter in L. A On. Guy knew all this going into the assignment, but I think because I had been in Atlanta for a little bit, and that's home. I kind of got used tol like, you know the stability of working in a stable covert unit again and So I was a little triggered when I got here. I had to take a moment to kind of be compressed because, um It took me time, you know, especially after having cold it, you know, to see those patients like that, cause I certainly thought that could have been me too, too. So, um my first night was rough. Umm Cold's going off and I looked like I was, um, orientation precept. It was amazing. All the nurses and staff physicians are amazing at the hospital it working so hard and Even stretched so thin that they said they sent in the National Guard to help us as well. So it's The first night I had to take a moment of my precept and say, Hey, I just need to take a breather. Get out my Mass because I felt those flashbacks coming back from working in Miami and And so many people die in a day. You know, it's really hard. Yeah, it really is. Especially since as you say, we saw these images you know, on the news from Miami over the summer and in other cities as well, New York, Of course in the spring. And yet, here we are. Almost a year into it. You hit the nail on the head. You know, it's like you think you're prepared and you never are. You know, I remember Washington when it was happening December in China, And then I watched in Italy and I watched the New York and Hey, And here we are, Like you said, a year out coming up on one year and and there's no break. It's just you feel like you don't get any respite. No. No rest from from the chaos and I mean, we're even in Texas. When I was in Texas. They had a mobile morgue Did er there? And, um You know, it's and I'm hoping with the vaccines rolling out, you know things will we kind of get herd immunity, But even nurses, there's physician. There's people that are very skeptical about it. And I've had both of my doses now, but I think that that's gonna be a problem with getting the pandemic under control is the apprehension to give back to native Can you explain that to me

"Second biggest economy fresh data today show grew two point three percent last year. Despite suffering and historic six point eight percent plunge between january and march that makes it the only major economy to expanded in two thousand twenty. The bbc's of wanting explains that momentum was thanks to a rebound in global investment. A boost in exports and counter-intuitively a strict lockdown it implemented a severe lockdown fast and strictly parts of the country were completely locked down and factories. Shut down as well. It did allow china then bounce back in a rather rapid way when it had managed to control virus outbreaks across the country now expectations for growth to continue this year but there are some potential headwinds. Yeah absolutely and we've seen a new outbreak. Outside of beijing and government officials. There have been quick to act again. This is one of the key data. Points that i think is worth pointing out victoria. Even though we did see growth what we also saw. Were we expected retail sales figures. What that underlines is nervousness amongst chinese consumers. Because they're not quite sure what this year is going to be like the trade spat and the new administration. Coming in to the white house will also be a big challenge. For chinese policymakers who are looking forward perhaps to a more stable relationship with the us but unlikely to be an easier one given that the biden administration is unlikely to ease a tough on china stance. The bbc's kershaw was funny for us. Thanks for your time. Thank you victoria. Checking some other numbers now. European shares are drifting lower. This morning the main share index in.

COVID-19 vaccine distribution faces logistical challenges
"Hello and welcome to the foreign desk. I'm andrew mullah my guests today sarah wheaton and dr arthur caplan sarah wheaton chief policy correspondent for politico europe. She joins us from brussels. And autho kaplan is professor of bioethics at new york. University's school of medicine. He joins us from the woods of connecticut. This first part of the show. I want to talk more domestically about what. The responsibilities and duties and possibilities are in terms of vaccinations and how domestic governments go about organizing them the second part of the show. We'll talk more about the global picture. But sarah i'll start with you not withstanding the united kingdom which is actually proceeding with the vaccinations at a reasonably impressive clip. The non uk european countries. Actually being too slow by half they'd seemed to have got off to a very sluggish. Start indeed and it's causing quite a bit of domestic problems around the block and as well it's also calling into question european union's unity in fact. There's a huge blame. Brussels faction basically saying that the eu was too slow to buy doses compared to the united states and the united kingdom on the other hand. You also see that many countries including germany. Which has been one of the most vocal in criticizing. Brussels is not doing a very good job of getting the doses out that they have. is it. just a question of polaroid if you will if we focus on one specific example you look at a country like the netherlands which would appear to have every imaginable advantage. Where doing something like. This is concerned. It is geographically tiny eddies rich. It is well organized you would think vaccinating. The netherlands would be relatively straightforward. Is these things go and yet one. They have barely started and to the government has picked this moment to resign on mass over. Something else entirely right. I think it's really fascinating if you look at the databases that lay out. How countries have been doing with their vaccination. There are some things that show number of doses administered per one hundred. And there's not an obvious pattern so again sort of make sense that you can. Denmark are doing very well but then you have italy. You have spain. You have slovenia and lithuania in the top ten whereas you have big wealthy countries like germany and france and the netherlands as you mentioned doing quite poorly and each country is a precious snowflake with a health system and the value said that really drive this so one of the factors in the netherlands. The case in many countries is at one point. It looked like the astra zeneca vaccine was the front runner that was both the cheapest and the most logistically simple. It doesn't need kind of special freezing transportation so i think the netherlands was a country where they were more banking on that particular shot being the one that was available so they didn't think as much about how they were going to be doing the logistics for a more complicated marnie vaccine in germany. They say actually part of the issue is that germany has many different health insurance systems. And so the data about who actually qualifies for this vaccine is not consistently available whereas in countries like spain and italy. You may be due in certainly in the united kingdom where you have the national health service you have various centralized data system author another thing that countries have had a long time to think about is the order in which they roll the vaccines out. Obviously who gets it i. You can't vaccinate everybody the same week. Does it strike you that. There's much in the way of interesting or indicative divergence in in who is prioritizing. What here in the uk of call us where credit where it's due to the government as we were saying they're doing quite well. They started out with old people. Care homes people with chronic illnesses which might make them more vulnerable. Is that the smart thing to do. I wonder myself with a more thought. Should be given to vaccinating. People like retail workers bus drivers refuse collectors. Delivery people the ones who have to interact with the public and the ones without whom society really would grind to a halt. Yes well we spent an announcement of time in the us arguing over who should go first. Who should go second new should go third lots of categories federal advice flying around about prioritization. But we learned a couple of things once. The vaccine went to the states. They all decided their own priorities. So in some parts of the us prisons and prison staff are being vaccinated in other states. The governors have said no. We're not doing that because they don't like prisoners basically even though that's a high risk population and could be a place where the virus easily spreads back to the community. I've talked to a lot of people who run group homes for intellectually disabled people in nursing homes or care homes but out in the community. They're getting no supply they got forgotten. So i'm lis- despite lots and lots of arguing if you had a clientele of down syndrome individuals. Their death rates are six seven eight times as high as everybody else but somehow the prioritization list so we did spend a lot of time arguing but now we have fifty states with fifty different policies. We've seen a little cheating as a result because when you don't have consistency people start to say that. I'm not gonna follow the rules. So we have people who are rich. Flying to florida to get in line to get vaccinated. Florida per usual doesn't seem to care exactly who's supposed to be a priority. The lord help us to even vaccinating canadians. Their her down there snowbirds so that's causing tension among the locals. But here's the take on less than than i learned. It's great to have these arguments. About who goes i. If your logistics don't work it doesn't matter what your list is if you can't get supply out to the meat packers of the delivery. People are wherever if what we do. Is we send the supply to hospitals and nursing homes or care homes as we've done here that's where the vaccinations occur and those institutions will just vaccinate their employees high risk. Or not is. That's where the refrigerator is. As sarah said it's hard to handle stuff. They're not gonna go running down the street looking for the next category person to give it to so logistics as much as ethics or laying out priority groups drives distribution

Expats in Italy
"Let's start the hour with a look at the other side of the coin has a couple of americans explain how they reinvented themselves when they moved to italy. Have you ever liked what you saw in italy so much that you dreamed of actually moving there. I have to admit i've been tempted myself. We're joined now on travel. With rick steves by two people who gave into that temptation and now they're living their dreams and rod left her job and twenty fourteen and moved to cnn and long so for him. To medallion settled down within near sorrento above the coffee. Coast anna an and join us now to tell us their story. Thanks for joining us. Thanks so anna. How did you end up in sienna. I studied italian in college. Fell love with it. Decided to move to italy after college. Move to to rin then ended up doing graduate work in manchester became professor and then realized that i needed to get to sienna because i did my thesis on saint catherine of sienna and every summer i went every summer. Got harder to come back to the states. So i eventually just decided to move there. And that was a few years ago and You must like it. Because you're still there i do. I love it by the way big industrial city in the north. No nonsense fantastic city. Though the best food real interim people think about that but you ended up in sort of the fairytale medieval tower not an end lung. What's your story. I changed my major twice in university and so decided to take months break to go to italy to try to learn the language. Because i'd been there on vacation before and then after six months decided to stay in ended up marrying an italian and been thirty eight years living in sorrento thirty eight years in beautiful lemon cellos cream. Lemon cellos with those nothing. Better i can't think of a more dolce rental so now you've been there thirty eight years in a small town a small community in community above surrender. You always the foreigner You don't look italian. I'm a foreigner. I definitely have strange ways the way i do things It's foreign but i've been absorbed into the community. They think of me as a local. Because i've withstood thirty eight and you respect the do respect them and there's a lot of my friends that were foreigners that have left sense and they get no respect. I can respect accepted in the community. Are you taken seriously at community meetings or parent teacher meetings. Whatever you might be into you sit there at the table and and you're part of the community and they'll ask me about my opinion about local ideas and things and i'm raising family in the community as well so it touches my life. Now anna i always think of who settled in. Europe is experts. Yes but you're also just flat out. Immigrants immigrants exactly it which my friends in santa always remind me of ohio the immigrants. What's the difference between an ex pattern and immigrant. Well if we're going to be blunt the color of your skin. Isn't that something. I know in italy relationships seem to be really important to get things done personally and in your in your work life. Talk about the importance of relationships. In italy the hugely important and i think that had i not found myself in a contrada in sienna. I don't think i would have stayed because it's so important to be a part of a community. And i am the american in the she wolf so you really identify with the she wolf district. Yes loo- i know that because you guys won the palio two times in one year. Yes we did. And cnn has this passion for the neighborhood. yes. I mean famously. With these contrada. Yes and think that. Cnn is very much a walled city in in both senses of the word because it has the walls that are still there from medieval times. But there's this wall mentality as well where it's hard to enter and to become a part of the community. So i feel very lucky that i found myself in the contrada and they accepted me eventually but like and said it took awhile. Oh she's still coming back so she is she
WHO team arrives in Wuhan to investigate pandemic origins
"There's an international team of researchers from the world health organization who arrived just yesterday. They are in wuhan to investigate the origins of the pandemic. The david tell us what we need to know about the investigation. What exactly are they looking for at this point in the pandemic listeners can be forgiven for thinking one. Oth- is this investigation turning a year off to the pandemic began in wuhan and the answer is politics. The answer is that china is spreading a story which it is spreading with incredible force and assertiveness that it is grotesque to say that china is to blame for covid that it made it even begun in wuhan that maybe it was first spotted a mojang because chinese scientists are unusually diligent but we have seen very senior chinese officials. Just kind of throwing out Random theories about where this. Boris may have begun whether it was india or italy or the uk or the american military. Maybe brought it in or maybe it began in several places simultaneously. Which was the line from the chinese foreign minister of the year. Anything rather than it that actually at the beginning of this for a month maybe two months there was a cover up by calmness officials who didn't want to admit that they had a new virus on their hands in wuhan. So now you have this team. From the world health organization it was supposed to be fifteen is now any thirteen because two of them were stopped in singapore because they had autism their blood when they were tested. Then i'll even on the ground there in quarantine now for two more weeks. There are no promises on the chinese side that they will get to talk to the chinese doctors. Some of whom certainly know about that. Cover up because they were that trying to get information out and were punished. Getting out so really. I'm afraid this investigation is anything. But the real independent scientific probe into whether this deadly disease began on how to prevent another one taking place. It isn't entirely political. Very controlled exercise grudgingly allowed onto the ground in a very limited way by chinese government determined to say that covered is actually a triumph for the chinese communist party. Because they've control the virus now within china's closed

The Birthplace of Saint Augustine
"World of augustine encircled the mediterranean sea spain and portugal. To the west france switzerland and the british isles to the north greece turkey israel to the north and to the east. Of course italy extending right into the sea the boot poised to kick a soccer ball also known as sicily and stretching all along the south egypt in the coast of africa. Agusan is from africa. Now that's the modern designation as are all of those country names. I just listed for you and the three hundred and four hundred. This was all rome. All of these peoples were roman or were to be considered roman and all of these places were part of the far flung roman empire augusta was born specifically in what was called new media the roman province of namibia. It is modern day algeria. His hometown was aghast. It was originally a village of nomadic. Berbers and back in the two hundred and one hundred species does the punic. Wars rome took control of this vast area as guston was born. Rome reached its zenith as augusta and lived roman declined and as guston died. Rome fell well. The gas was two thousand feet above sea level. It was surrounded by mountains that were another thousand feet or so and it was a very fertile plain. In fact the most fertile land in north africa it was a great place to settle and farm. Corn olives were mostly harvested and had a great economy one. A story noted how it became a retirement destination spot for roman soldiers. Did you ever wonder where the lions and bears and tigers in the roman amphitheatres came from. Will they were caught in the mountains and in the plains around agustin's hometown of the gas one hundred and seventy miles away to the east was the massive city of carthage. It was bustling with people and trade. It was second city only to rome and sixty miles or so to the northwest hippo regis. That city would come to play a significant role in the life of augustine. Near the end. Agustin's father was patricia. S a roman pagan. His mother was monica and devout and sometimes mystical christian much much more on her later as our book unfolds. Augustine had siblings. But we know very little about them he had at least one brother navigate. Send at least one sister and he likely had more brothers and sisters. But we just don't know that much about them at all. He was born on november thirteen. Three fifty four. This was a full generation of post. Constantine rome one. After constantine's conversion did you see the air quotes there. i put around network. that's important. This was the christian era at the end of the roman empire of course alongside of christianity. Plato's philosophy and the schools that followed him ruled the roost. That's important. It was a time of doctrinal advance. Augusta lived right in between the nineteen creed three twenty five and the cow sedonia creed of 451 that's important. He also lived during the time of heresies. They were springing up all over the place. Will that too is important if you were to ask a young augusta playing in the streets of the gassed. What do you want to do when you grow up. He would answer with one word. I wanna be
Why Your Employee Experience Probably Sucks
"David america. Welcome to the podcast. All the way from snowy utah and sunny texas luli rear very happy to be here man. Be on the show matt. Good to have you on getting out of this. Thanks for sending the thomas auden at this time of an normandy. Doing other things here. we're we're gone. You're having us said we would do anything for podcasts. You have a great. So he goes from palestinian pros rundown on what you guys do and power. We also While wearing contacts Little bit into this boy while we're gonna be talking about after that -solutely awesome power still in pros. We are a coachee accountability organization. So we actually do training in coaching exclusively in the home services industries so heated in air electrical plumbing and in a few outliers as well but really our our main goal is to to help companies grow by doing that. They win more moments. They while more customers in really ultimately they make more money. So it's it's not only just about creating the our experience for the customer but what we've discovered we'll talk about. Today is really take care of the employees and you get the engaged employees that employ experience. Will you know late over an influence what. The customer experiences parasailing pros. We've been around for eleven. Years was started by brigham and dickinson in brigham. I've actually presented with from stage. Thousand burgum is great We bring her boss. Of course we love. What am i going to say. Getting actually service roundtable event in sydney dag comeback was years ago. Yeah sorry definitely has changed over the years. So we have about forty five coaches that work with us and we should do training we do. What's really unique with us. Man is of course. Training training is great but we do ongoing accountability coaching though it really starts to help shift the mindset in that really affects the behavior and natural you start to see the real change takes place over time. Yup aleki certainly preaching Here because we put a lot of emphasis in episode type of years into accountability. And you know the difference between a dream and a golf betting a strategy italy's contest sophon. They'd myself over the years since since having accountability partners implies things things might quick show sorrow. Moulik decide this will be extremely well recites and you guys obviously in different locations is that is that because of the recent recent events or is that always been the case. I try to stay as far away as possible to erica. why i'm in texas. He's in utah. She's awesome but man. We actually have an autonomous company in. We don't have a brick and mortar building. We literally have coaches in denver. Florida oregon californian but i would i would definitely say the majority of our there in the beautiful state of utah while okay. So we're we hated. I touched on slave in this series of crowded. Today is the first episode of the creating amazing employee experience. Now we've done the whole customer experience in the past and some it was very well received and think in lots of current global economic situations with the off the back of the pandemic romell your experiences villanova. There's a lot of guys out there. A freaked up to the whole conversation around that staffer attention you know grinding good employees here experience deciding on just funding and i think now more than ever this sort of a situation where the the baby of talent around because for one reason or another people living that guy from the jobs and you know especially after year anyway of the years as miss this constant screen for office off. Now there's now this debate people around so they bang biking that in yourself. More appealing message is paying dividends. Sooner maybe even just now literally just before this podcast outed of Had job applications coming from adds that we're running. I just question whether or not. I don't recall having applicants coming in the fall. It's working in the fiber of the business owner to a degree. I think again. I go to make sure that you stand out against the rest.

'Where Are The Women?': Uncovering The Lost Works Of Female Renaissance Artists
"Could not enter art academies in Italy, the cradle of Renaissance masters, no matter how talented Names of a few female artists of that time, and some from the centuries that followed, have often been lost in the mists of history. A Zen prior Sylvia Poggioli reports. There's an effort to bring their names and their work into the light. In this video tour of Florence is famed you Fitzy Museum travel writer Rick Steves list. Some of the highlights the United of Inches enunciation is exquisite. Michelangelo's holy family shows he could do more than carved statues.

That's Linda Fanconi, an American writer who helped found a W a advancing women artists. The group has identified some 2000 artworks by women in museum basements and damp churches and finance The restoration of 70 works. Fanconi describes the challenges women artists faced in the Renaissance. Women didn't have citizenship. They couldn't produce art as a profession. They couldn't study anatomy no in the nude figures, for example, because it just wasn't considered appropriate. The inability to study in the same in the same forum as male artists is very significant. A major discovery was a huge canvas 21 ft. Long off 13 life sized men. The only known last supper painted by a woman. She's the 16th century Dominican nun, Clumpy Llanelli who worked inside a convent. Florence has a long last supper tradition. But, says Francona, most of them are static. Whereas Nelly actually chooses sort of the key moment in which Christ announces his betrayal and you have all of the apostles.

He spent the first thirteen years of his life. They're growing up in a small town on a hill. Not much is known about his youth mainly because he refused to speak about it. It was obvious to those who knew him. Later that something happened in italy that made young giorgio want to leave in one thousand nine hundred eight. He sees the chance to escape his home. Country in boarded a steamship with his older brother headed to ellis island Because we don't know his brother's name will call him. Rafael georgia was thirteen years old when he and rafael saw the statue of liberty and new york city skyline for the first time but whatever excitement. The new land may have inspired in giorgio. His brother didn't seem to share it for reasons. Unknown rafael return to italy immediately after delivering his younger brother to the immigrant inspection station. Perhaps he was only tasked with delivering giorgio safely to america. Maybe he was just along for the ride. It could have been any number of reasons he could have been turned away from. Ellis island for criminality or disease. Regardless when thirteen year old giorgio emerged from ellis island. He had a new anglicized name. George solder he was alone in a brand new country for better and for worse. His new life in america began that day in nineteen eight and he quickly got to work. George didn't stay in new york state for very long instead. He headed west to pennsylvania in order to find opportunities there and find them he did. It took a few years but before long. He left a railroad job in pennsylvania for west virginia and worked his way up through the hauling industry to open his own trucking company. But that wasn't all he wanted out of life in the early nineteen twenties. George met jenny. Cheaper yanni jenny.

It didn't matter though the two had plenty in common and hit it off right away. They fell in love and soon enough. They got married ready to start a family. They moved to nearby fayetteville west virginia. Their new town was nestled in the foothills of the appalachian mountains and was home to a small but tight knit community of other italian immigrants. Over the next twenty years they became respected members of the fayetteville community their neighbors view george as a successful local businessman and jenny was known as carrying housewife who adored her ten children but a mystery lingered at the heart of this solder family and it involves georgia's past or rather the lack of it. Everyone and their italian american community new. The georgia emigrated to the states. Just like many of them. Andy may have had his secrets but he certainly wasn't shy about his political opinions during the nineteen twenties and thirties. Italy's fascist prime minister benito.

"So you get some figures. Like johnny middle scholl. Who are heard. But they don't represent the this was the broad centre-left spectrum in france. I think what you might see actually is the greens rather in the same way that you see in germany. The greens beginning to sort of chip away. The s p d. I think you may find something similar happening. In in france where the altar of socialist party has Opened up the space by its retreat is then being filled by the green movement. That's one possibility in in twenty twenty two which may be a bit surprising but we can sort of see it happening already does. Is it conceivable. I don't know who the person would be. Could there be a a green candidate for president. Who has a chance of getting to the second round shorting. Well i mean if you sort of think about it if you imagine that. The representative of the socialist party does as badly as they did back in two thousand seventeen. Then it all depends on where votes go and votes go to the heart left then. No the left is can split as it. Slow traditionally has been in france between the hard left and the and the softest centre-left and the numbers just don't add up for presidential first round but if the very large number of socialist voters and there was a time when there would be very large people voting for socialist party candidate drift towards the greens than if you still have a very very low school for the for the socialist party candidate. Then yes. I think you could see some sort of around a new poll if you like. Which would be a a green candidate. I don't find that impossible that it depends on who that is and whether they get momentum and whether whether he gets going in the next couple of years. But i mean it's not something that's unique to franz. I think there's a kind of drift in other places as well. So that's what makes me think it may be worth considering whereas the centre-left innately nowhere to be seen now the democratic party the. Pda is of course on the three partners in the government coalition but and they did gain a few points over twenty twenty which i guess is a good sign but the fact is that the party is not even trying to project an image of south center left. They're basically so when it comes to the relationship between the andy you. they're always siding. With the use of one of the interesting things that are debated at the moment in italy end. That might actually quite dangerous for government is whether or not. Italy should accept the the european civility mechanism and use it to fund. Healthcare expenses and the democratic party is together with drains. His party is physically the only party in government that is in favor of using those monies. Of course a five star completely against using the european stability mechanism so the he doesn't have clear. Left-wing i think and yet the the problem is that different different for example from france or possibly is that there's no park further on the left. Right so what you have is the five star movement which is not clearly further on the left. I mean some parts of the part of the movement are further on the left but there are other parts that are further on the right. So this new. Our new figures among the central after coming that are coming out of the pandemic twenty twenty. What you have is some parts of the five star movement ended. The democratic party said doing what it always does which is just not clear. The government almost lost question completely. Sort of general not particularly analytical question but coming to the end of twenty twenty twenty two twenty being a very extraordinary. Yeah we're coming to the end of the trump era boost coming to the end of a one version of the full year cycle that included brexit and included a lot of turmoil in european politics. Too as people look ahead to twenty twenty one in leeann franz politicians. The public is that any feeling to think that something more like normal familiar politics or sense of optimism. That's some of the worst of the upheavals of the last. Few years may be going to recede or do you think there's still this mood. A biden era. Brexit assaulted the vaccines come. The european recovery fund. Does its work. Mackel is eventually replaced by someone. Said it's got jockeying familiar jockeying for supremacy in european politics. Is there any feeling that twenty twenty one might be a year. Where european politics feels familiar or do you think dot sense that wherein held might say completely inappropriate in this context that we know in kansas anymore. That there's something new in european politics that feeding is still really strong. I would say from the french perspective from the broader european perspective. I don't really think there's the sense of a return to to know malady. I think people often sort of looked to conserve biden with this kind of longing for return to something like to know the sort of the nineteen ninety s or something. It's just not. I think the case that the issues are too pressing in there too many of them. I think franz it's kind of it's very clear i mean my call one in twenty seventeen because she was accused of corruption at a crucial moment and was forced to stand down and he was able to present himself as somebody who would break the hold. The traditional parties have on the french system. That simply won't work in twenty twenty two and it makes it very very unclear. I think what the results might be in that presidential election and how exactly it would play out. And there's a sort of lurking sense of foreboding about something unexpected happening. I think that you know is going to be the case..

"Is the government's popularity starting to wane. Yeah so that's that's an interesting question because the answer is I'm afraid. Yes or no so no because if you look at polls he's still scoring fairly well. He's still very popular historical to there to be to have if enclosed ask how the craziest has managed at the national level. People still seem to be happy with the government. Yes because if you don't look at the polls and if you only look at a political debate it definitely got much more heated and there have been Series of low blows between the government and your position in the past two three weeks so we can really start seeing how the future is going to look like so once the acute phase of emergencies over and the reopening starts. I don't think that the government will be able to enjoy a high level of of confidence from deflation. Savini has gone into full attack mode so that will have its effects. I I assume and NAS time you said that. The Beginnings of real political contestation was Rome versus the regions and regional politicians. Who were really pushing back against. Some of the national management of this is that still the case is is there still a clear national buses local divide? Yes it is even though there are few differences. I think so. Actually a few days after we recorded last episode the president of the Vanity region which is the region of Venice which by far has been region that dealt best with the virus so they started having the virus exactly the same day as Number D probably has your cases to stocked with but they managed to flatten the curve as we have learned to to say very very quickly and manage not to overwhelm their hospitals and indeed that region is opening up this Monday so they have autonomously decided to open up before the rest of the country without dissent of row and one week after we recorded the podcast. The president of that region said as soon as this is over my number one request will be automated so there. There is a clear political agenda of northern region going fool on for autonomy against throng having said that if needs to be said that the lumbar region which has always been the stronghold of the Northern League. It's the region worse from which Cellini comes. It's original Milan. So it's traditionally historically the strongest region in the country economically most flourishing region etc. They did very very badly in the crisis and that became clear week after week after week and their management which is old if you want to top guys from the Northern League so Venus acolytes. They've done horribly. And this is clear. That's under the eye of everybody at the moment and there is there has been growing opposition from the population inside the region against the League. And in general the region government and that'll scores has weakened their claim dwell ptolemy yet at the same time has forced them to ramp up conflict against governments rights. Because will never failures are highlighted. The response of the region and government is to say. Well this is Rome's fold. It's not our fault we wanted to do. Otherwise but wrong. Didn't let us so. I think this is interesting. Because he has the conflict withdrawn continues but the two main regions the two most important northern regions to regions governed by the league. They reacted very differently. So one was very successful at managing the virus and want autonomy on the basis of its success. The other failed that managing the virus wants autonomies on the basis of its failure by blaming the failure on road and autonomy here means what exactly is not as it were independence. No no it doesn't know. The League has moved on from demanding full independence but what autonomy means is mostly fiscal autonomy. Which then would imply autonomous decision making powers on everything that has to health which was ready to case to a great extent and education as well as if if this fiscal autonomy on how to spend the money raised through station. So that's basically what they want. They want their money to stay in the region and they want to decide how to use it within the region. Come on in the second to the in a way the big question which is evolving Italian US cheat to Europe the EU and the euro. Because I think a lot has moved on that since we last spoke but just one more regional thing. There was a very interesting article in New York Times. Which did the thing that I did last time in. You corrected me. Full Making Account north-south question because that leads out middle but the this is a really acute crisis. Full the south in a different way than it is for other parts of Italy. It's a sort of almost trap on that account because the lockdown is having devastating economic effects in a very pool region. They're very poor. Parts of the south. That comedy Wittstein this and at the same time. Healthcare in those places is much weaker. Much more vulnerable to being overwhelmed whether disease to tackle so. There's a kind of dilemma for both politicians and populations in the south where she's more acute on this account in the north. They can't tolerate the lockdown and they can't risk what happened in the north in terms of the virus happening in the south. Was that an accurate report. There's in places like Sicily elsewhere. There's something even more acute going on. Yes I think that's accurate and it is interesting again because it's a completely different crisis right. So they have been relatively speaking spared by the virus. They had a few cases that nothing not even close to what's happening. The North the has emergency touched him only to limited extent. But what happens that the lockdown and in general the global the global lockdown. Not only. The national lockdown will have very strong effects in terms of flake economic and social life of the south. That's because these regions live off tourism. Not only to is of course but tourism and everything that that that works are on tourism so restaurants museums etc accounts for a big chunk of their income. And of course this will be gone for the foreseeable future and on top of that. The other problem is that there is a widespread problem in the south. Which is that. Many people work illegally. They do have jobs. This jobs are not registered with the state's Hanson do not pay taxes hence they cannot receive state subsidies now that everything is shutdown which of course has brought manufacturers families that would normally have regular income to poverty and this became evident A couple of weeks. After the lockdown started when a few supermarkets where raided and assaulted in the saw one I think was in Palermo. Fortunately these attacks and assaults have not repeated themselves. They didn't happen again but it is true that there is widespread concern and anger coming from the south at the basically the socioeconomic off the lockdown. And this is especially true if you think that on. May fourth when the lockdown is lifted. The North will reopen its industries and although they will be struggling work will start again. What in the South? That's that's unlikely to happen. And if on top of all this you add the fact that the south is quite happy permeated by organized crime. There is a real sense of danger that this situation in which a big chunk of the southern appropriation is not getting money from the government. We accept money from organized crime so this is really a breeding ground for even further development over organized crime which makes tuition particularly dangerous. Anything that going back to what we were saying earlier. It's becoming clearer and clearer that this is going to be a double constitutional crisis for Italy in which it's not north-versus-south but it's the center squeeze between the demands of the north and the demands of the south which are diametrically opposed so the north will be demanding more autonomy which means as I just said keep the money it produces or raises Itself and the south will be demanding off road much more presence and much more redistribution of wet so the North will want to keep it money and the south will ask Rome to give it money and of course. We're it's not clear where Rome we get this money from each north gets it just only so it's really a. It will reveal fundamental problem of Italian politics. Which is a problem. That was born with Italian unification. Which is that the north. The South end a sentence as have never managed to really unify an moments of crisis. This differences become much more evidence while so it is almost like the perfect storm and then it is a reflection of the European question in microcosm because the other thing that's going on here is the question of redistribution at the European level and aligned standard. One thing that has really moved on since we last spoke is anger directed towards European institutions and then to particular European countries that are seen to be either blocking aid for it. Lay off setting like outrageous terms learning clear out with more debt. I mean that's the story of this week. We took him as a lot about on this. Podcast the corona bonds question. Clearly going to be eight and support for Italy in reconstruction but the terms on which that is given an the sense in Italy that this is coming with lots and lots of strings attached. That is fuelling euroscepticism as we'd call it isn't it? Yes absolutely I mean Italy. I think that since twenty seven the attitude of Italy towards the European Union has been getting worse and worse and worse and of course in two thousand eleven when the Monte government was installed There was a sense of hopefulness in which you know following you. Rules would mean the end of corruption. The end of Bruce Kony's reckless suspending. But then that sense of hopefulness that was sparked by two thousand eleven faded away and instead what you start getting was the result of austerity so more and more euro-scepticism more and more opposition to policies especially financial and fiscal policies. Coming from to you and this has just exploded now it has exploded for for obvious reasons in the sense that what they use offering is clearly not good enough and especially some of the rhetoric that came with this type of debates in Brussels Roy damaging in terms of Italian opinion about Du u Famous sentences by Dutch minister saying that we are just. The Italians are just lazy and of course we cannot deal with the crisis that just because we never manage to save money this we're of course picked up by the euro-sceptics and over blown out of proportion to make a case against the U. But apart from that what happened. Is that the government itself went full on at least in terms of rhetoric against anything that they you will so of course. They wanted corner bombs which did not happen and they that Konta had a few press conferences or actually speeches to the nation in when she said we are not gonNA allow a replay of the euro crisis. Italy this time with defended toner. So he's he's on tone was very aggressive towards the U. Which of course fourth Savini and Maloney whose leader of these other right-wing party Eurosceptic right-wing Party even further to the populace right. So if if the center she won't if the government itself was using such a strong language against the U. Than THEY HAD TO DOUBLE DOWN. That and this started happening. I think three weeks ago and became even more evident after the last meeting of eurozone finance ministers when they decided that the SIM would be among the packages offered by the European Union and Sylvania's response to that was to tweet in capital letters so an entire tweet in capital letters that the government had sold Italy to the sharks of Brussels and Berlin. Which of course is not is not is not true right. They didn't they didn't they. Didn't sign off for getting. These long suggests agreed that this long that would be available for countries who might want them that no doubt consensus in. Italy's that we should not sign off to this proposal but Savini made it look like the government already did and that sparked an incredibly bitter debate about what Italy's actually doing WTI European Union. That has not come down yet talking. Politics is brought to you in partnership with the London review of books when Conte says we will allow a rerun of euro-zone crisis. What if anything is implied threat? So you can see what he's trying to resist. But what is he threatening to do if he doesn't get his way because Helen would remind us? The constraint of being years member means that your options are incredibly limited. Because I presume there is still no appetite in Italy for coursing the euro under these conditions..

"Decree this big decreed that the government passed in order to inject a lot of cash flow into the economy. It's not clear why he's threatening not to sign it but he's threatening to sign and the president of the Republic had to intervene so that's one line his trying to play out the other argument. He's trying to use is a eurosceptic argument. So he's basically going banging on on video that you see that you is not here we told you the Germans are not willing to share their respiratory devices with us. We had told you all along because it seems that does a slight mixed message as I understood it. One of the reasons he doesn't want to sign the decree is he doesn't want to go down the path. We taught Adam tease about this possible corona bones and the federalization of the European economy. So on the one hand he's saying look we told you the country's going to be sold out to the e bureaucrats when we get in a crisis on the other hand he saying look. We told you when we're in a crisis the other Europeans don't care about. Yeah exactly there is a mixed message. And he's not really articulate it clearly so when he's threatening not to sign this decree he's not really saying I mean if you look at his twitter account he does tweet about the factors getting corona Bonds or accepting money from the M. E. S. is a way of selling telling off the country without say that but that's not exactly the same argument he's giving for not signing the decree ventilators but not money. Your he wants yeah. Yeah but it's it's not clear what he wants. I mean He. He's of course aware that Italy will need a lot of money and it's not clear where he's planning to get it from Still GonNA come from three to nothing. I don't know maybe China. Maybe he's looking at China. The moment that it's politics of that a pretty complicated so the thing. Gotti the PAYDAY leader. So he's now known a little bit outside of Italy as the guy who would have been three weeks ago. I lost track of time when out forbid until people was there any to tell people he was going to go out drinking. And then you go. Yes yes indeed. Of course there was a lot of irony and skepticism about again as you said he was the one who went to Milan. Having a predictive. Oh and then the virus himself but he was so do we hear announced it the way he behaved afterwards was very sober and I think somehow people forgave him for that. Because that's a mistake that everybody made right the mistake of thinking that. This was an overreaction and he's himself and his party have been very quiet throughout the entire crisis. They've only been supportive of the government was doing and I think that people appreciated that and that shows in the fact that again the latest polls show that the Democrat Party has gained two three points in the last two or three weeks so basically sevigny lost these two three points depending on the polls and their Predator democratical gain them so it's the fact that he made that mistake doesn't seem to have had effects on his popularity or on. The popularity of the party was politician. And then I want to ask you about how the rest of the world looks from Italy. The Miot said when we last spoke I rashleigh said five star done. You should never in politics. Make those kinds of statements because you never know where you're going to be in three months time Where five-star now in this I mean that's still in the government for a start. Yes but we'll be tempted to say that you're right no income wrong. You're going to tell you no. I don't think they've done forever. I don't think that's the case. But at the moment they have disappeared completely. So the only voice you hear is the my young. Who's the Minister of Foreign Affairs? And you only hear of him because he's organizing repatriation flights. That's all he's doing well. The other thing he's doing is managing the relationship with China. And of course now. Everybody's looking at China as the sort of details X. Makina giving us machines and face masks and expertise so now we he is coming out of this crisis relatively well but the party is nowhere to be seen really the one last thing. I would like to say before we move on is that there is an interesting new dynamic while it's not really a new dynamic. It's an old dynamic that has come to the forefront recently which is the role of northern regions and the governors of these regions in Italian politics. So I think that now the real political divide is between regions and Rome. This is interesting. Because the regions that are gaining ground and voice our the regency the North Again Lombardi Benneteau Emilia and Piemonte and these are the worst hit regions and three out of four of these regions are run by governors from the League from the League and I think this is interesting because it means two things. The first is that this individual figures. These governors are much more visible and enjoy much more popular support than Salvini does and there has always been attention between Salvini and his nationalistic vision of the Party and the governors of the northern regions. Who on the country don't want nationally sparty but won't autonomy for the regions because these are normally wealthy regions that have a good health system? That have a good weight of compliance from citizens people are paying taxes. They're productive. They're wealthy. They're generally will run so. This crisis is really showing the detention within the league between governors and Salvini so savini. Who doesn't know who has no expertise of really governing anything and regional governors. Who HAVE A lot of expertise? And who are the ones holding on the show? Basically they're the ones who are saving lives if you want to some an exaggerated rhetoric but that's the sort of thirty that's going around so this is one reason why this is interesting and the second reason is because the old tension between the north and the central between the North and Rome has become very important again so again you position is between this northern governors who wants to for example shutdown entire productive activities of the regions and Rome whose find to be more cautious and doesn't want to give them the powers that they want to have anything. This tension between the North and Rome will play out again in the future. Once the the emergencies over. That's really interesting. So is it. So it's new set versus centers not no south. No it's north. It's really north against the rest of the country. Is that for the South? Where but those are the center right. It's it it really is Veneta. Lombard the Piedmont Emilia. So and it's interesting right because there is a Emilia which is as we discussed lit on our last episode on Italy. Mill is run by Bonacina the mechanical so from the centre-left but all this governor also league plus PD. They're working together against Rome. No south divides a confusing. Because as you say they leave out the center there's an assumption a soon as you've left the south you're in the north as in as in England or the UK. That's not true. There's the middle as well China as he said. China is now Dais X. mackinaw a month ago. China was the source of the disease. China was the place that it was the first country to stop. Flights coming in China was the problem. Now China's the solution in some sense. Can you date it? I mean when did it flip? When did it go from? We must do everything in our power to keep the Chinese out to. We need more help from them than from anyone else. I think it's two weeks ago so until two weeks ago you still had the governor of Benneteau who's again a league person saying that we all know literally he said we all know that Chinese eat mice so this was a pretty strong racist rhetoric and the sort of Tom Paean blaming blaming China for for for the outbreak of the disease but as soon as they realize that this is a serious problem suddenly. The referee can the narrative completely flipped now. China's the solution and then presumably at the point when the definitely went above the number of deaths in China and the the various grafted a put out but the Chinese have not just flattened the curve. But they've turned it the other way they've been the curve and in Italy as we speak. It's still going up logo rhythmically. China looks completely different. Now yes yes. Of course there is. I mean everybody. Here is aware that we are not China I. The outbreak in China was only in one region now region was as big as easily in terms of population. But here we are looking down an entire country and of course we cannot use the measures of surveillance that China has put in place presumably. There are not armed officers of the state outside upon them blocks taking people's temperatures as they go in and come out no no of course not even though they are taking temperature everywhere so when I landed from London they did take my temperature but yes dot with snitty two weeks ago. That was yes Eleven twelve days ago but they've been taking temperature at airports since the virus workout in China. So it's almost a month now even more that but when you were stopped after your work in the woods the police until your temperature didn't know so no of course we're nowhere close to what was going on in China But one thing that for example again the northern governors are trying to insist on is the idea of testing the entire population. It's an effort both in financial terms but also in terms of organization right. You need people to test. Every single citizen in each northern region again the justification for that is to do what China did so it is in some respects two weeks ahead of the UK. The sequence seems to go Italy Spain France. Uk possibly Germany a little bit behind the UK. Germany shut many of it schools before the UK did and people in in Britain and in other places looked to Italy as possible. Glimpse of our future future in two weeks time any longer timeframe than that two people in Italy as we sometimes hear looker. Say British people widow Boris Johnson on our Friday night. This is your last night for getting out to the pub- said a lot of people think right. I'm going to get some time in now. The People in Italy. Look at that and think the you don't know what's coming down the line they despair of us. Yes yes we do have heard yes yes so. There is a complete sense of despair. And just we come make sense of what's going on in the rest of Europe and in the UK and the Netherlands especially right. So is the other one right after. Boris speech when he basically announced this herd immunity theory. And when he said you're going to lose a lot of loved ones. The reaction in Italy was that that was completely completely insane. Then of course the bar is made a u-turn on that and people need to again take it as a proof that we are right just to be clear. The thing that was insane was it. The herd immunity was it. The loved ones BITs. In the sense. You said what really struck me about what you said. Earlier was the feeling in Italy that the government is doing the right thing because it is prioritizing saving lives over everything else and did it feel like Johnson was saying a little bit. Well we're GONNA have to just factory certain amount of inevitable death of old people and that that has almost a cultural dimension to this that it sounded cold about the old in a way that in Italy. That would be unforgivable. Yes yes I think..

"On in Italy what's happening now is the government is saying that and not enough people are staying in so they have fined about fifty three thousand people since the beginning of the lockdown and those are people who aren't following the rules closely enough and the interior minister threatens that if people don't stay put that she will pass a new decree that will ban going out for physical exercise right now you can go for a run within your neighborhood or do a little bit of exercise keeping the the social distancing but she says that people don't comply that will be introduced soon because the numbers are not coming down yet one of the people doing when they're going outside I mean are they doing something I mean besides just physical exercise and trying to get groceries well I think the the C. there have been people who have been you know arrested and fined and and in doing you know going out without what's called the outdoor chip TV gets yawning which is sort of a questionnaire it's sort of a self Declan Tory questionnaire that you have to fill out now that it and there's been a there was a new one introduced where you have to say that you you you know you have to sign that you have not tested positive for the virus and so that's a new measure most people here in Rome are keeping the distance I haven't seen anybody breaking that rule unless you consider sort of going for a stroll breaking that rule you know I've been exercising I have not been stopped but I'm clearly you know I'm wearing workout gear and I'm and I'm running I think what they are talking about is people going shopping several times a day they don't want that they want people to go stock up and and not go for a few days what's the anxiety level like across Italy because in the E. U. S. it's pretty hot I think it's probably a little bit lower than the U. S. now in the sense that the U. S. is under shock and it you know it's literally mind boggling I think it it it it's very hard to get to wrap your mind around it initially it's not that people have anymore answers here but I think what's happening is people have are are settling into the day to day routine and it's not easy in a way it you know there's a lot of people who are isolated and a lot of people very worried about their economic future and of course in the north of Italy it's theirs it's a disaster in the hospitals I mean they're working under emergency conditions twenty four seven but the feeling over all is that we're in for the long haul and the government has said that the initial deadline of April third we're schools would reopen that of course is not going to happen we're talking weeks and across Italy and in Rome which is further south than what they've been seeing are you thinking that there is the fear that it will be as bad ians some place like Rome as it is further north in Milan and other places you know I have talked to doctors sort of just south of of the hot spot the the lot number of deer region and in the media Romagna where there were there are a lot more cases but the capacity there has not it's coping with with the number of cases I mean they're working very hard but it's not the emergency situation of the north based on research there was one inter disciplinary study with experts from different fields from the university of Genoa and the north based on their models they're saying that Italy will probably reach peak numbers and about a week from now and then the percentage increase of cases even though each night when the government announces the new numbers there keep going up the actual percentage increase is going down a little bit so that's a reflection of the move that the government made a number of weeks ago in the north but you know that even the experts and political leaders are saying it's not coming down enough take care you too coming up calming an anxious world some of the things you can do to quell your covert nineteen concerns on perspective after this from ABC.

We'll have do you think a lasting impact on Italy's economy or is it just kind of a temporary shock. The economic implications are pretty severe because number one who avai integrated with China.

But if they use it one ks which this badly-needed is now okay and should be approved. Tomorrow shall be today because one thing. We no way while from fiscal stimulus. Is they take time to have an effect. We should intervene very fast.

His harsh rhetoric against migrants the media and cultural integration has resonated with Italians especially the youth. His party is the Lega or league in English and in the last six years their support among Italians under thirty I five has grown from eight percent to over twenty percent and even more broadly lake is now the second most Popular Party across Italy for this season of the ground truth podcast. We've dispatched reporters to detail. How populous leader seemed to be following the same how to guide ride to turn democracy against itself? This is democracy undone the authoritarians playbook playbook or reporting project from the Ground Truth podcast in partnership with the Atlantic magazine. I'm Charles Senate founder of the Ground Truth Project in this series focuses on seven countries Italy Colombia Hungary India Poland Brazil and the United States although although leaders in each of these countries may not be authoritarians their tactics lean in that direction in the process of reporting doing these stories. We've identified common methods or plays from playbook that populous leaders are using to undermine the same democracies is that elected them whether driven by heads of state or political parties. These forces often deploy multiple tactics at the same time but we are highlighting one in each country in this episode targeting outsiders in Italy our global fellows Alessio Toronto and the Renzo Ben Newly spoke with young Italians who are joining right wing movements. They say that Italy's White Christian identity party is under threat from the influx of arriving migrants in response to this threat in two thousand seventeen.

Fiato is an activist from Milan. See Stop you from the Lebron caused. He's already eliteautori. It's your victory debit speeding today. Fiato is a member of Salvini Lega party which has grown from a regional group in northern Italy to a National Party every year.

Our reporter unless you're Onta road along with him. We are heading data as mold down in the Alps near the town of Pantera is important to the League party because it's the site of historic battle against foreign invaders known because of the celebration that the host there every year in order to remember the oath sworn by denied of northern Italy to defend northern Italy from the German emperor freely shipper battles centuries ago. So it's something to underline that the people in Italy wanted to be free from foreign influences or for foreign titans or something something like that.

Even if it's it's perceived as a northern Italian it has a very national meaning for all of us. Aw We met people from all over Europe but they are not necessarily partook. Toby later these Europeans fall under a larger right wing movement called identity. -Tarian it's a movement that rejects multiculturalism centralism. They insist their culture and land belong to White Christian Europeans. I am a nationalist on an Irish nationalist. We are not given the platforms to speak our positions. We are instantly called for. She's a rare call the Mazzi or the usual labels. Racism is the number.

But also also domestic there are strikes Islamist milky cultural multiracial. Societies are also multi violent and military racist. And now I think all of the Western civilization we can see the same consequences and also. I hope we can see the same answers which are in Italy incarnated by the League of Vinnie. Mattis wants to unite all European nationalist. SATIS thiede his book to their shared values. So if an a little fee they'll continue our children were born raised and we'll have their own children in Europe and we may be the last guardians of the wonderful idea idea of Europe that the founding fathers had it wasn't the Europe of banks and finance it was the Europe of peoples of rights and and labour. This is the Europe we want to leave to our children. We are the only defenders of the real roots of this Europe eh so speaks in grand unifying themes that appeal to the Europeans in attendance. But he's more precise message. Is Italy I to deliver the message. He adopted the playbook tactic of targeting outsiders by weaving. It's th century season. Pasta farmers insist cusack. GM Mussalini Salvini mentioned mentioned several of Rome's iconic sites such as the palace of Italian civilization and the city of Latina both of which were built by Benito Mussolini any by invoking these connections to fasten Salvini seems to be accomplishing two goals. I he can claim that he's he's rejecting the fascist legacy of these landmarks while redefining them with his legos party. Second the risks power in these imagery because it is associated with fascism which has historically been very effective in targeting outsiders and Salvini knows this according to recent polls taken by quarrel you tren and Italian think tank support for Lega grew when Salvini was frequently on TV raising. They are against migrants arriving by boat. Selby news even suggested. Italy shouldn't act. Policies restricting immigration similar to those of the trump administration and like trump savini prefers to use social media to express himself and to connect with his audience and if facebook statistics are a reliable indicator of a politician's popularity. He seems to be winning close to four million facebook users like Matteo Salvini speech. The nearest runner-up who also happens to be a far right politician has less than a third of that total but that popularity might have to do with the fact that Salvini rhetoric has changed over the years. He's now influencing a new generation ration- these younger members of Lega grew up using social media and delivering a more nuanced message to attract new followers. My name is avalanche number with Danny. I leaving Kasahda but Valentine Overdone is in her mid twenty s and a member of Lega. I met her in Casanova.

For his stance uh-huh and both to gun in spain county or like to look at some of the specific takeaways as they relate to asset classes when you think about the equity market we have a negative atv opinion stocks sewing are comfortable location within the euro zone. We are negative oh neat but we negative stacy's linked with that that the economy's onum he's not doing well politic's met there but <hes> we have seen that the bully because being very tight scenes forever so i think <hes> <hes> it's just the short term volatility long-term more at ease but what really matters is that because even remain quite sluggish cloudy pumps finally what about the wider european outlook. Obviously we know that there are sort of significant consequences certainly in terms of getting this budget agreed in tons of italy's obligations nations to the wider blog. What do you think that market watchers. Maybe there's in brussels for example. What are they looking out for. What are their expectations. Maybe their hopes uh for what might happen next in italy. What do you think that the the wider european picture tells us but for me. The european are expecting and looking for everything being in his new coalition between democrat party and we finally star because you're ready announcer. The first line of the newspaper is it's morning but also yesterday when we present mother-in-law was speaking it was this kind of coalition will bring forward some reforms which are or ready i return on with the bar like the number of people sitting in the parliament or even <hes> reducing or easing immigration policy because clearly there was air reform which was voted during the summer which straight relative to immigration policy. He's so a p._d. And five star really sean cooled es immigration policy and may some reform so that will would be well accepted and think this kind of coalition cooler so easily proposed twenty twenty budget because there are many points on which the share and will be easy also to be except without keeping an stain without the european commission roles so that is is what the european commission and european looking for but the problem with italy's also facing is the growth is very low so if you want to keep <hes> into the fiscal deficit for various no spending tool and all the situation u._s. and in your case if free potential scenario like every five star movement plus p._d. Everything <hes> elite moving with for data over legaue beyond moving back again with a five star italy need to go to a sean again next year so if you are in a period of time with the economy's not all doing well and you have also been certainties about election that is not helpful so if you are in the grove which is close to zero or slightly above zero is not easy to picture a twenty twenty budget. I think european commission we lost we revise down all secont forecast in order to propose cloudier perry bringing us to the end of this two hundred.

"And eleven and then you go the fact that this italian government like any other talion government has got to do with the constraints that the bond markets crate now the moment italy pays exceptionally low interest on that i mean in some senses absurd italy can have a debt that's more than one hundred thirty percent of gdp and be paying little interest is it as it is in the central mechanism by which that has occurred at least in recent years has been quantitive easing so in some sense i'd say that the most longterm consequential confrontation is going to be what this talent government is going to have to say about who the next head of the is because drawing his term is coming to an end next year there's clearly a desire not only in germany but in other northern european states to have a northern european friends as they sit person is president of the european central bank but any body took that job and then terminated qe would cause an immense cents problem for italy italy's is being propped up by the european central bank at the moment and if you magin the problems it had just on that day with qa in place and then imagine what happens when that gets taken away that's a whole other ballgame something that something that we haven't seen you certainly around that post but i also think that what maybe makes it with the most significant case of ours that we have this broad societal majority in favor of two parties whose positions are in many ways going to clash with european rules and we saw it already when method made his decision you begin to see this idea of the eurozone versus democracy as a pretty open platform around which people can really understand understand this is unacceptable and that was the flash and then it receded but i think over the next few months and years of this talion government is going to be that in the background and if you've got something like sixty.

"Does actual concrete impacts of refugee and population plus there's a story that we had talked about went in the newsroom in we all sort of chuckled at it but it actually is kind of serious italy didn't qualify for the world cup which was like a massive kind of cultural blow to italy sees itself at sport ball in every idea how airline home region track this with a microscopic level of detail except the exact opposite of dracula hit but the reason i mention it is one is act your point that a blow to a country that prides itself the level of kind of fanaticism within europe countries have toward soccer is something we hear it before all sports fans can entirely understand but also because politics and sports in his in italy are so closely tied so silvio berlsuconi of bangabunda fame private best known in the us of a time politicians owned a very prominent italian soccer team and sort of part of his name part of his rise came from that he was at a moment this past week where the most famous black soccer player in italy ghanim arguable telly went after a spokesperson for the league who is himself black because he said your party wants to kick out six hundred thousand african migrants and his quote was pretty good this is from the soccer player perhaps i'm blind abrupt they've been told you but you're black so it's sort of this again this racial component but this also intermingling of sports culture race and i think is we're trying to figure out why italy when it's not you know jen when you put at numbers don't bear out the fear or the hatred i do think that there's this deeper sort of questioning about what is italy and where will italy be where the migrant issue becomes an easy can scapegoat and asked think it's really important point out the kind of ideological connections that know we talked about the rise of the farright in europe salvini has given speeches in front of the national front's rally as in france marine le pen's farright party right she invited him to give a speech he has ties to all these different farright parties but there's one kind of central driver in a lot of ways are one kenneth node that connects all of these.
